Bearcat Tyres, the Australian arm of Camso, are excited to take delivery of their new SOLIDEAL Hauler Half-Track tyres which have been designed to offer a new level of performance for rail contractors.

Glen Wolfenden, Business Development Manager for Bearcat Tyres explains: “Focusing 100 per cent on the off-road-equipment market creates an environment for our global R&D teams to deliver new and innovative products, with a real connection to industry. In this case the Hauler HATR is like providing contractors and operators with their own tailored made tyre. We asked them what they needed and we have delivered”.

The Hauler HATR (Half Track) is designed specifically for wheeled excavators working on rail. The heavy duty casing pneumatic tyre has a 50/50 tread profile: half smooth and half treaded. The advantage is a smooth rolling surface on the flat rail track and a tread pattern section to help with traversing or transporting on softer grounds.

“Suppling a purpose built product is very rewarding and we (Bearcat) wish to continue to highlight the advantages our unique tyres, wheels & track products can provide to the construction industry. In this case rail construction contractors.” Glen mentions. “The positive feedback justifies why we (Camso group) are focused to engineer unique high-performing SOLIDEAL tyres”.

The value in buying purpose built Solideal HATR tyres instead of non-specific truck type tyres or a basic industrial tyre is evident immediately. Better stability, improved operator comfort, increased tyre life and reduced damage fatigue. Bearcat Tyres suggests that the Hauler HATR 10.00-20 should deliver double the life of other non-engineered products.
