Continental CompactMaster EM: New loader tyre launched for the construction industry.
  • Continental has launched a new telehandler and compact loader tyre
  • The CompactMaster EM tyre features a new Turtle Shield design and twisted steel cord
  • The new tyre is suitable for both agriculture and construction

Continental has launched the CompactMaster EM, a new telehandler and compact loader tyre. Rebecca Shedden, Continental’s General Sales Manager for Commercial Specialty Tyres says: “The CompactMaster EM is specifically designed to help operators handle demanding rough conditions. The tyre features new Turtle Shield tread technology and a twisted steel cord. The hard shell, and more flexible steel wire construction, helps to prevent cuts and damages whilst offering greater stability.”

The tyre is more effective at protecting against punctures and is designed to withstand the lateral forces of stationary turns.

Turtle Shield and twisted steel cord technologies to prevent punctures and maximise robustness

Telehanders and compact loaders make stationary turns on hard surfaces which increases the lateral pressure on the tyre. “The new twisted steel cord construction is part of a unique Turtle Shield design beneath the rubber which protects the tyre shoulder area from damage like cuts and penetration from foreign objects,” explains Shedden. 

The tyre has a higher amount of rubber with a finely structured block to offer better mileage and easier stationary turns. “The CompactMaster EM  has been designed by our research and development team. Production takes place in our state-of-the-art production plant in Lousado, Portugal,” she says.

The new twisted steel cord construction provides greater lateral stiffness and protects against foreign object damage.

CompactMaster EM: Suitable for agriculture and construction

The CompactMaster EM tyre is ideal for vehicles that work on paved surfaces, asphalt, sand and gravel, either in agriculture or construction. The new tread pattern has been designed to withstand the lateral forces of stationary turns making it more resistant to punctures from foreign objects. It is also capable of operating at speeds of up to 50 kilometres per hour. “The ability to travel at higher speeds provides confidence and offers the potential to save valuable time”, she says.

The new CompactMaster EM tyre is capable of driving at speeds of up to 50 kilometres per hour.
