Recycling and Waste Management
Waste management facilities, recycling yards and scrap yards are job sites with some of the most extreme surface conditions in the equipment industry. Due to the nature of the work that is performed on these sites, there is an abundance of sharp debris that can damage any type of equipment.
While some of these facilities are rather large in size, their yards rarely have the open space that is required for maneuverability of large equipment. Therefore wheel loaders after operate straight over the debris, or more compact equipment is utilized. Regardless of the machinery choices, pneumatic and even foam-filled tires are not an option.
Regular solid tires, on the other hand, are heavy, expensive, and too tough on the machine and the operator. To remedy these pains, McLaren Industries has developed Nu-Air Tyre - a tire solution that lasts as long as solid tires, is completely flat free, does not require foam filling (what a chore!), and most importantly, offers a flexible comfortable ride for the operator. Numerous benefits come as a result, not the least of which is the ability for an operator to comfortably use a skid steer loader on scrap yard for a full day without feeling any back pain.
