New Specialist Tyre from Bandvulc


British retreader Bandvulc has recently added a new unique tyre to its portfolio. The Tugmaster, an all positions yard tyre featuring Armorband technology to protect against sidewall damage and a high polymer rubber compound to provide higher resistance to punctures.

Bandvulc Bring Out New Specialist Tyre

As with the company’s existing Wastemaster range, the innovative Armorband technology is unique to Bandvulc’s products and offers protection around the sidewall of the tyre, providing an extra safety barrier against curbing and a coloured strip on one side to provide early warning in the event the barrier is compromised.

The Tugmaster has been designed for the specific application of yard and dock shunters, offering a great solution to offset the stop/start/curbing demands of such vehicles.

The tyre, currently available in 295/80R22.5, is being widely used by Bandvulc Plus+ retail shunter vehicles as well as being an original equipment option.
