lsw 101: An overview of low sidewall technology
LSW® (Low Sidewall Technology™) helps equipment operators unlock greater productivity while taking on some of the toughest jobs in the world. LSW —a hybrid of our wheel and tire technologies — features a larger rim diameter and a smaller sidewall than a standard tire. This significantly reduces power hop, road lope and soil compaction, which improves equipment safety and performance. It also pairs well with equipment in several rugged applications, including agriculture, construction and mining.
LSW for agriculture
LSW for construction and mining
We also incorporate leading tire innovations into our LSW technology to withstand the harsh conditions in construction sites and mines. To give customers a variety to choose from, we are currently testing our LSW technology on a variety of equipment, including loaders, graders and articulated dump trucks.
