Bearcat Tyres , importers and distributors of industrial tyres and rubber tracks, from brands such as Solideal, CEAT and Duratough, have been associated with heavy industrial and heavy-duty tyres for the mining, quarrying and construction industries.
Bearcat Tyres also distribute Carlisle tyres, designed for smaller working vehicles, such as wheel-barrows, hand-trucks, garden tractors, ride-on-lawn mowers, golf buggies, utility vehicles and all-terrain vehicles.
The Carlisle Lawn and Garden range of tyres features high performance and reliability.
Richard Blacker, Bearcat Tyres’ Sales and Marketing Manager said that it is important for all users including, landscape contractors, turf managers and caretakers of sportsgrounds to be aware of the important contribution that the tyres make to vehicle performance.
As the only component of the vehicle in constant contact with the ground, the type of tyres selected, their size, tread pattern and compound all combine to effect load carrying capacity, energy efficiency, traction, stability, manoeuvrability, driver comfort, service life and, ultimately, productivity and profits.
According to Richard Blacker, in addition to considering cost and performance, turf managers also have the added burden of choosing a tyre that will not damage their delicately maintained areas including lawn, golf courses, parks and sporting fields.
The Carlise Multi Trac tyre is designed with wider surface area to prevent turf damage and features a tread pattern with the ability for floatation drive. This allows for turf equipment to be driven in forward and reverse, while still providing solid traction and without tearing or damaging the turf.
Carlisle tyres are available for various applications, with a range of turf patterns specifically designed to match machine, horse-power and function.
