New K738 Design from KRAIBURG


KRAIBURG Austria is adding the K738 design to its construction site product line, thereby adding convincing perfor­mance on the road to the line’s already proven off-road capabilities.

New Design Provides Both On and Off-Road Capabilities

The K738 pattern is designed for the harshest off-road conditions, and also convinces on rough, unsurfaced ground in terms of durability, traction and resilience. At the same time, it exhibits smooth and gentle run­ning properties on surfaced road, high mileage inclusive. Responsible for this are large, newly designed tread lugs, which withstand tears and breaks as well as increasing the tread resistance.

The K738 carries both the M+S and 3PMSF symbol and is therefore suitable for using all year round. "With the K738, we have staged a minor revolution", Christoph Priewasser, Product Manager KRAIBURG Austria claims. "We have already tested our new design in practice, of course, and the results have not only convinced us but also the drivers of the construction vehicles concerned." The K738 design is available in widths 250 and 260 mm from September onwards.
