In the west of Inner Mongolia, a coal mine uses wide-body dump trucks to transport materials. When trucks run uphill at a speed of 42km per hour in the hot summer, the high heat and severe working conditions pose a big challenge for the tire.
During the pre-sales investigation, the Techking service engineers found that there were lots of sharp gravel in the loading area of the mine, which caused cutting or puncturing issues.
The customer clearly stated that solving the problems of block falling or tire wear in the early stage is his first demand. They not only affected the operational efficiency of the fleet but also increased the total cost of tires. According to the on-site situation, the Techking technical team recommended 14.00R25 ETOH tire solution for cross-testing on four trucks.
These tires were mounted in December 2021, the Techking technical team conducted three data tracking and comparison in January, February, and April of 2022. We can see from the test comparison that the tread wear of ETOH is in good condition, while the tread wear of the comparative brand has block falling and severe cutting issues. The average remaining tread of ETOH remains still 20.13mm while the remaining tread of the comparative brand has only 17.79 mm. The wear-resistant performance of ETOH is 10% to 15% higher than that of the comparative brand.
The good heat dissipation performance and wear-resistant performance have been highly recognized by the customer. Meanwhile, he expressed his expectation for the tire performance in the later stage. Techking will keep tracking the tire performance and provide continuously customers with high-performance products and services in the future.
