Barloworld Handling Ltd has ordered over 1000 of Continentals innovative CSEasy tyre for a unique purpose on its short term hire fleet. The CSEasy is allowing Barloworld to quickly and efficiently tailor a fork lift truck on their fleet to the individual needs of the customer.
Barloworld's short term hire fleet is amongst the largest in the UK and offers solutions for all materials handling applications. This leading material handling equipment provider will be using the CSEasy tyre in their Short Term Hire fleet.
The CSEasy presents a unique and time saving solution to enable Barloworld to meet individual customer specification. A black tyre can be changed for a Super Clean tyre in a matter of minutes simply by using a torque wrench and without the use of an Industrial tyres press
The CSEasy is unrivalled in the UK tyre market. With its unique adapter mounting system it can be fitted to any Lemmerz-contoured rim dramatically reducing the amount of vehicle downtime involved in changing an industrial tyre.
Dean Beddard from Barloworld said; “The CSEasy was chosen for the Hire Fleet because of it's flexibility and ease of fitment, we now have a truck package which we can tailor to our customers needs with the knowledge that we can offer Non-Marking tyres across the majority of the fleet and be able to change from standard black tyres in a matter of minutes prior to delivery to customer. The CSEasy also offers a much improved wear rate which is key to Barloworld Handling driving down its running costs”.
Gary Banks from Continental Industrial Tyres said; “The CSEasy is the most exciting thing that has happened in the Industrial Tyre Industry since Continental developed the “SIT” (Snap in Tyre) which is now used by all the major OE manufacturers. This is a major step forward in how Industrial tyres are to be used within the Material Handling Industry.
Barloworld will not only benefit from more efficient tyre changing processes but also its advanced technical properties. These include, optimum rim seating, low rolling resistance, high temperature tolerance, higher dynamic load capacity and up to 40% longer life than the standard Continental tyre. Safety is also enhanced through optimised side-tilt stability and greater steering precision.
Barloworld Handling is a leading force in the UK materials handling industry and the sole distributor of Hyster lift trucks and warehouse equipment since 1956. The company is also a leading supplier of tyres, including the CS Easy, and has a national team distributing and fitting tyres.
