Tire protection chains are a great solution for maximizing the tire lifetime in open pit mining applications. Due to the large scale of mining activities mining companies operate large fleets of earth moving machines and loaders. Tire failures are expensive as machines operate 24/7. Mining requires the machines to run constantly and during a tire failure mining companies experience profit loss on top of the tire cost. In addition, large areas with limited access further extend the down time due to tire failure. Therefore, tires require specific solution for protection.
You can save a lot just on tires!
Although tire protection chains may look like an expensive buy, just by mounting them you can drastically bring down the hourly operational costs on the long run. Therefore, after the first experience with tire protection chains they become an indispensable item for mining companies.
