Leading UK Dumper OEM selects complete wheel solution from STARCO

Feb 17, 2015 | Industrial Vehicles

Since its launch a decade ago, the STARCO MP Dumper tyre has won recognition from many dumper Original Equipment manufacturers and Aftermarket distributors as the best-performing and most efficient dumper tyre on the market. The unique tyre construction and tread design ensures superb traction in on-road and off-road conditions, excellent steering and maneuvering capability and a comfortable ride for the operator. The tread design also promotes self-cleaning, to ensure continued grip even in the most difficult terrain.

The MP Dumper type has become very popular in the UK, where the Dumper, in many variants, is a regular component in the fleet of any construction company, and thus where many of Europe’s leading Dumper OEM’s have established themselves.

When the STARCO MP Dumper tyre was first launched, STARCO did not have a compatible 16×22.5 steel wheel in the company’s own-brand product range, thus many Dumper OEM’s chose to mount the MP Dumper on wheels from other manufacturers.

In recent years, the STARCO steel wheel manufacturing facility in Beli Manastir, Croatia, has introduced wheel spinning facilities that can handle large wheels. The excellent manufacturing quality at Beli Manastir, further enhanced by the unique e-coat process by which all STARCO steel wheels are given unparalleled corrosion protection, has won the approval and stringent certification of many leading agricultural and industrial OEM’s, including a leading Dumper manufacturer which, from 2015 will be fitting a complete STARCO wheel solution to their dumpers, using the STARCO 16×22.5 steel wheel and the MP Dumper tyre.

The selection of a 100% STARCO product, backed up by the unparalleled logistics of STARCO for both OEM and Aftermarket supply chains gives the OEM a performance and economic advantage, as well as access to STARCO engineering expertise in the development of wheel designs for customer specific applications.
