Continental and Caterpillar have signed an agreement to equip Cat Off-Highway-Trucks (model series 770 to 775) with Continental RDT-Master tyres in sizes 18.00R33, 21.00R33 and 24.00R35. The agreement will also see the two companies collaborate on the design of tyres for other Cat products such as Medium Wheel Loaders and Articulated Dump Trucks.
Jan Skaletz, Key Account Manager for OTR tyres, says: “We are happy to announce the cooperation with Caterpillar on top of the launch of our new tyre lines in the mining and construction segment. This cooperation underlines the significance that Caterpillar places in innovative technology, the customised solution approach and leading edge technology that Continental now offers in this new industry segment.”
Continental’s RDT-Master tyres feature all-steel radial casings and belt packages for cut and impact resistance that provide outstanding traction in all directions. They will be listed on Caterpillar price lists starting in 2017 and can be specified by Caterpillar dealers and end users as first fit tyres on new equipment orders.
