Trident’s Non-Directional Traction Boom Lift Tire Pattern Reduces Vibration

Nov. 15, 2022
Trident’s patented SSK-04, high-traction, non-directional Traction pattern provides even wear irrespective of the direction of motion, uniform performance in all directions of motion with reduced vibration.

Trident specializes in the design, development and supply of application specific industrial tires for construction and material handling equipment. The range includes solid, pneumatic and foam-filled tires for forklifts, skid steer loaders, telehandlers, boom lifts and wheel loaders.

Most boom lift tires currently available are in a R4 traction, directional pattern. As boom lifts have a 360º swing, there is no defined forward and reverse direction. In fact, machines have decals showing that the unit can be used in either direction.

Directional tires when frequently used in reverse will exhibit faster wear and are prone to vibration. Trident’s patented SSK-04, high-traction, non-directional Traction pattern provides even wear irrespective of the direction of motion, uniform performance in all directions of motion with reduced vibration. 

These tires also eliminate the need for left and right SKU reducing inventory for OEM’s and end users alike.

 As most pneumatic boom lift tires are foam filled with polyurethane, the inner tire profile has been optimized to reduce consumption of polyurethane tire fill resin thus reducing material intensity of petroleum products.

Sizes available are 315/55D20, 355/55D625, 15-625 and 18-625. These are also available as ready to fit foam filled tire and wheel assemblies in black and non marking
