Bauma 2022: Continental launches innovative LD-Master L5 Traction construction tyre

Smooth ride and long service life despite heavy loads and abrasive surfaces. The new LD-Master L5 Traction radial tyre is designed for demanding conditions and is also fitted with tyre sensors ex-works. Continental is presenting the new construction tyre at Bauma 2022 between October 24th and 30th in Munich, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment. The new radial tyre, will initially be available in size 35/65 R33 and joins the ContiEarth range. 

High-level traction under demanding load requirements: the LD-Master L5 Traction

Construction machines usually operate with heavy payloads and are exposed to a variety of harsh ground conditions, such as rock, gravel or rubble. The LD-Master L5 Traction is specifically designed for loaders operating on abrasive surfaces and working on jobs where high productivity and assured vehicle uptime are of the upmost importance.

The reinforced 3* carcass satisfies the highest load carrying capacity requirements, even under extensive production cycles. The L5 traction tread pattern protects the carcass and ensures a smooth and safe operation on the construction site. The solid tread block design always provides secure traction. The extra deep tread and sidewall protection also make the tyre more robust and ensures long term productivity. 

Optimised service life thanks to digital tyre monitoring ContiConnect 2.0

To minimise idle time and ensure serviceability even under harsh conditions, the specialist tyres fitted to construction machinery should be controlled as precisely as possible. The LD-Master L5 Traction is fitted with an integrated tyre sensor ex-works, making monitoring possible in real time. The sensor monitors temperature and tyre pressure, assuring at all times the most efficient operation mode for a long tyre life.

In addition to the LD-Master L5 Traction, Continental is presenting its EM-Master E3/L3 as 65-series for construction and surface applications and are providing a sneak preview for a new solid skid steer tyre.
