ASTONISHING SAVINGS THROUGH RADIAL TYRES

ERSTAUNLICHE ERSPARNISSE DURCH GUERTELREIFEN

In a test undertaken in a sandpit, a wheel-mounted loader of the type kaelbe "sl 18 b" was equipped with cross-ply tyres, size 23.5-25 pr 16 l 3, and with a transparent external fuel tank so that fuel consumption could be observed during the work. The aim was to see whether and how fuel consumption changed when different tyres were used. The machine equipped with cross-ply tyres and 30 litres of fuel achieved 93.5 working strokes and ran for about 75 minutes. With michelin radial tyres, 122.5 working strokes were achieved and the machine ran for 91 minutes. The fuel consumption of the loader was about 24 litres per hour with cross-ply tyres and 19.8 litres per hour with radial tyres. (TRRL)
