New partnership will focus efforts on off-highway trucks.
Continental and Caterpillar have signed an agreement to equip Cat Off-Highway-Trucks (model series 770 to 775) with Continental RDT-Master tires in sizes 18.00R33, 21.00R33 and 24.00R35.
“We are happy to announce the cooperation with Caterpillar on top of the launch of our new tire lines in the Mining and Construction segment,” said Jan Skaletz, Key Account Manager for OTR tires, Continental. “This cooperation underlines the significance that Caterpillar places in innovative technology, the customized solution approach and leading edge technology that Continental now offers in this new industry segment.”
The agreement also calls for the two companies to collaborate on designing new tires for two other Cat products: Medium Wheel Loaders and Articulated Dump Trucks.
