The return of Bauma, the world’s leading trade fair for construction and mining equipment, provided Goodyear with an opportunity to demonstrate the role tyres and tyre management solutions play in helping the industry achieve efficiency and sustainability targets.
Trusted Products – simplifying choice to boost efficiency
The Goodyear GP-3E for wheel loaders, articulated dump trucks and graders will make its European exhibition debut at Bauma 2022. After listening to customer feedback on the challenges of high costs and the importance of driver comfort levels, the GP-3E features an innovative lightweight tyre design. The key benefits are an optimised cost per hour supporting sustainability goals as well as low vibration levels supporting a high level of comfort for the driver. This versatile product is suitable for a variety of applications with well-balanced traction and flotation levels.
Another new tyre on show is the Goodyear Powerload. Designed for compact wheel loaders and graders, Powerload is the compact tyre that likes it tough. Smooth Guard Technology™, an extra thick and smooth rubber layer protection in the shoulder area and sidewall, improves cut resistance. The advanced, self-cleaning tread design provides superb forward and lateral traction for continued operation in tough conditions.
Both GP-3E and Powerload are Electric Drive Ready. This means they can be used on electric and hybrid powertrains, as well as conventional diesel machines.
Tyre Management Solutions – driving operational excellence
Goodyear has long led developments in Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) technology. At Bauma, Goodyear will showcase its enhanced ‘TPMS Heavy Duty’ which communicates through the Goodyear FleetHub (mobile + web app) or Goodyear DriverHub (mobile app), giving drivers and fleet managers predictive and prescriptive information to allow proactive and preventive maintenance of their fleets.
Octavian Velcan, Managing Director Goodyear Off-The-Road EMEA for Goodyear:
“Bauma is the perfect platform for Goodyear to demonstrate how combining tyres and tyre management solutions together with reliable services can drive safety and reduce costs. Our latest tyre innovations and fully integrated TPMS support optimised uptime and efficiencies for our customers. We are looking forward to productive discussions on how we can help operators flourish during a very competitive period for the industry.”
