One of the new items in plain view at Manitoba Ag Days in Brandon in January was Winnipeg-based Evolution Wheel’s all-steel wheels for slip steer loaders. At first look they may bring out recollections of old steel wheel tractors, yet they’ve been created to meet an exceptionally current reason, says Derek Hird proprietor of Evolution Wheel.
There are presently a few models of elastic followed slip steer loaders available which offer huge footing and flotation enhancements over wheeled machines, yet they accompany a much heftier sticker price. Hird says his steel wheels are a brilliant — and lower cost — different option for purchasing a followed machine. They can be a major help around the ranch, since they take care of a significant number of those footing issues makers involvement with wheeled machines.
Steel wheels built by Evolution Wheel in Winnipeg are specially designed for skid steer loaders. They offer better flotation and traction than ordinary tires, according to the manufacturer.
“Manure cleaning is a big one.In the snow they do pretty well, also working in the mud. A lot of guys in the market have trended toward a track machine to solve the 20 per cent of jobs they couldn’t do with tires. Now they have this option that’s a third less cost for an upgrade and virtually no maintenance costs versus high maintenance costs down the road for a track machine.”
The steel wheels simply bolt onto hubs the same as an ordinary tire and rim. They additionally offer a 60-40 balance plan so they can be mounted two courses, one to contract up the loader’s track width or switched to acquire freedom between the haggle body.
Hird also mentioned that :
“The nice part about the wheels is they’re easy to take on and off, two guys, 20 minutes and you have your tires back on again.They’re the same size as a 12 x 16.5 tire, except we’re a little bit wider to get some extra floatation.”
Because of their all-steel design, tire punctures won’t be a problem.
