Selecting the Right Solid Tires for Industry Specific Applications

Approximately twenty years ago, those of us working in the off-road heavy equipment industry regularly witnessed a high amount of failures in machines operating on cement or other hard surfaces. Extended steel rims were used with small, hard, rubber wheels. When these rubber tires chipped and chunked, vibrations and bouncing sent shockwaves into the machine, causing shortened life and expensive repairs, not to mention stress on operators. Drivetrain components (U-joints and articulation joints) in particular often suffered from stress cracks caused by vibrations and a bouncing machine.

Liebherr crawler concrete pump for bored piling foundations

Liebherr's newest crawler concrete pump the THS 110 D4f-K features a maximum concrete output of 133 yd³/h (102 m³/h) powered by a six-cylinder engine an is equipped with a powerful pump unit, known for its smooth operation and powerful suction. An open hydraulic circuit guarantees reduced system maintenance requirements. Additional structural details also contribute to optimum serviceability. High importance was afforded during the design phase to ensure that wear parts could be replaced quickly and easily. The smooth surfaces of the pump housing are easy to clean and the shape of the concrete hopper, devoid of edges and projections, minimizes the accumulation of concrete residue and soiling. An extensive standard scope of delivery for the crawler concrete pump includes for example, a 500-liter capacity water tank with water pump, as well as a lockable toolbox.
