Magna MA04+ Giants selected for heavy task

A large mining operator selected 27.00R49 Magna MA04+ Giants to serve its rigid dump trucks.

The tyres are charged with the heavy task of transporting huge amounts of iron over the total haul distance from the open pit mine to the dump area without any downtime or failures. Due to the severe road conditions including the risk of damage from sharp rocks and other objects, Magna says that the customer decided to select the special cut-compound recommended by the tyre manufacturer.

After three months of intensive usage, the first site check has been carried out. More than 2000 operating hours resulted in a promising achievement. The all steel radial constructed tyres with E4 tread pattern shows only slight signs of even tread depth wear and no damages.

Magna says that the customer is very satisfied with the tyre performance and expects to achieve a great reduction in its total cost per hour.

Magna says its MA04+ is an all steel radial constructed tyre designed for rigid dump trucks operating in severe off-road conditions.

Magna also adds that its MA04+ provides excellent resistance to damage due to improved shoulder and sidewall protection and is also available in various compounds including (A) cut-resistant, (B) Heat-resistant and (S) Standard. The deep aggressive E4 tread pattern provides excellent traction and a long tread life.
