Alliance Tire Group (ATG) unveiled three new solid Galaxy tires—the LHD 500 SDS L-5, the Super Smooth SDS L-5 and the YardMaster SDS—today at WasteExpo 2016 in Las Vegas. The new solid tires complement the company’s highly successful Beefy Baby SDS, ATG’s first solid tire, which was launched last year. Bruce Besancon, vice president of marketing for Alliance Tire Americas, Inc., says the SDS solid line is a perfect fit for the waste management industry.
“We’re seeing a lot of interest in our solid tires from operators of scrapyards and transfer stations, where puncture hazards are highest and downtime is extremely costly,” Besancon says. “We’re also seeing continued interest in the pneumatic Galaxy Hulk and the pneumatic Beefy Baby III—which has become the gold standard for skid steer and loader tires.
“Meanwhile, people managing compost and remediation projects for waste management companies are looking for tires from our industrial and even agricultural lines, covered by our Galaxy and Alliance brands,” he adds. “The Galaxy Muddy Buddy is great for slick conditions in compost yards, and the steel-belted Alliance Multiuse 550 brings all-weather performance and a big rubber-to-void ratio to tractors and loaders in waste management. Of course, we also have the Galaxy Bosslift III for forklifts and the Aeolus line of truck tires—for which we are the sole US distributor—for garbage trucks and dumpster handling trailers.
