Continental RDT-Master off-the-road (OTR) tire has been approved for use on Caterpillar rigid-frame haul trucks. Customers can now specify their Cat haul trucks with Continental RDT-Master tires.

Continental’s RDT-Master are available in three sizes: 18.00 R33, 21.00 R33, and 24.00 R35. These tires are approved for Cat 770, 772, 773, 775, and 775 WTR haul trucks.

“We are excited that Caterpillar is expanding its tire range with the RDT-Master from us, said Carly Shipley, key account manager at Continental Specialty Tires, in a statement. “This exemplifies our growth ambitions in the earthmoving segment. We steadfastly commit to push forward as a strong partner for our customers empowering them with unparalleled support and tailor-made solutions.”

The RDT-Master tire range includes tire monitoring to manage operating costs. The tires have Bluetooth-enabled sensor Generation II ex-factory ready for digital tire management. This allows all customers to read essential tire life data as air pressure and temperature directly via their smartphone without extra investment.
