Over 100 CASE backhoe loaders with McLaren Nu-Air DT solid cushion tires lined up for CSX Transportation
CSX Corporation (NYSE: CSX) is one of largest railroad transportation companies in North America. It provides a broad range of services, including rail transportation and the conveyance of intermodal containers and trailers. The CSX Transportation network includes more than 20,000 route miles of railroad tracks over a vast territory in the United States and Canada.
Managing such a massive transportation infrastructure involves a lot of maintenance and engineering. It is only natural that with such demanding operations comes the need for reliable machinery. It must withstand the pressures of large scale projects on a wide variety of rough terrains. The recent CSX purchase of 110 CASE Backhoe Loaders, all equipped with McLaren's premium line of Nu-Air DT solid cushion tires, is one example of the type of equipment required in the daily railroad operations.
A great example of CSX’s efficient equipment management practice is the requirement that all backhoes be equipped with Nu-Air DT Series Solid Cushion Tires from McLaren Industries. CSX has been using McLaren Nu-Air tires on its backhoes for a few years now and the boost in their performance has been proven and well noticed.
With the innovative Semi-Pneumatic Tire Technology, McLaren’s DT tires deliver a smooth air-cushioned ride while remaining a 100% flat proof for the entire life of the tire. The extra deep tread ensures better grip on sand, rocks and deep mud, and thousands of work hours, averaging three to five time longer than the standard pneumatic tires. McLaren's DT and AT solid cushion tires increase the backhoe’s output and enables it to handle any job, even the most severe and demanding.
Nu-Air DT and AT tires are available for most backhoe makes and models including Case, Caterpillar, JCB, John Deere, Terex, New Holland and Volvo.
Rear backhoe tires are also available to further optimize the backhoe's performance. Stay tuned for updates.
