Continental launches new specialty tyre at CeMAT in Hanover


The Continental TractorMaster has been specifically developed for the requirements of tractors used in material operations in port terminals and shipping yards or for aircraft tugs.

The TractorMaster will be on display from today until may 23rd (Friday) at the Continental booth in Hall 25, booth L11.

“The tyres on tractors must have significantly more load-bearing capacity than conventional truck tires,” says Dr. Michael Maertens, Managing Director of Continental CST.

“With the TractorMaster, we offer a solution that is specifically designed for the demands of terminal and yard tractors and aircraft tugs. It completes the comprehensive tyre portfolio for port use, which we presented at the TOC Europe in Rotterdam in June last year.”

The TractorMaster has a greater tread depth of 24 mm and is based on the proven design profile of the Continental RV20. It offers the same absorption properties and low rolling resistance. The closed shoulder of the TractorMaster ensures even wear and prevents tread tearing while providing excellent handling characteristics and smooth road contact for comfort.
