EWRS-AT SERIES

The EWRS-AT series of bobcat tires were designed to meet the needs of today's job site demands. We came up with a way to offer you serviceability, traction and a comfortable ride all in one!

With serviceable bobcat tire sections, the need for a service truck and specialized technicians is all but eliminated. We have reduced your service tooling down to only a 3/4" wrench in your operator's back pocket and repair parts are readily available in your nearest onsite storage container or in the toolbox of your pickup.

We spared no expense in creating this product and weren't afraid to bring you the largest tread lugs in the industry for serious traction and a long wear life. By reducing the number of lugs on a bobcat tire, we were able to increase the width and height of each lug so we could get rid of the wear bars running through the center of any other bobcat tire you're going to see on the market. This gave us two things: large voids in our tread pattern allowing for unmatched material clean out, and a long wear life on our bigger lug.

To make this product the total package, we topped it off by engineering a smooth ride into our design. We worked hard to bring you a proprietary rubber compound that would allow enough compression to reduce operator fatigue and stand up to heavy loads. Did we mention that the compound is also designed so that it won't stress crack? Only a premium compound would do for a premium product, that's the Evolution Wheel standard.

Cost Breakdown Calculation for Bobcat Tires

When purchasing equipment for your job site, cost-effectiveness is a main factor if not your number one factor. You not only want a reliable and durable product, but also one that won't break the bank. When purchasing bobcat tires, a product with lower up-front costs often seem to be the obvious solution, yet other factors come into play that often lead to higher overall costs in the end.

If you assume that quality levels don’t vary significantly from product to product, or from brand to bran, it would to make sense to go with the cheaper option. This way of thinking often leads to purchasing traditional air-filled bobcat tires for your skid steers. You may see the higher price tag of solid bobcat tires and figure that the air-filled tires are either a better value or will work just the same as solid bobcat tires.

But how much do those cheaper bobcat tires really cost in the long run? After all, up-front purchase price is only a small part of the big picture regarding the cost consideration equation. Other factors to consider are the cost of maintaining, repairing, and replacing the bobcat tires. You should also consider that recent advances in technology have led to a wide variation in the quality of modern bobcat tires, and there are now some significant differences between types and brands of bobcat tires. Although solid bobcat tires have higher up front costs, their cutting edge design will save you a lot of money in the long run.

If you’re currently using air-filled bobcat tires for your skid steers, consider taking a few minutes to think about the actual cost you’re spending from initial purchase to end of life. You might be surprised at how much you’re spending in purchase, repair, replacement, downtime, labour and other costs associated to air-filled bobcat tires.

Here are some factors to consider when doing a complete cost consideration calculation:

  • How many hours do the air-filled bobcat tires last on the machine? Lower-quality bobcat tires will wear out more quickly and need to be replaced more often, resulting in a higher overall tire budget. Though the individual bobcat tires cost less, the need to purchase many of them adds up.
  • What is the cost of bobcat tires when installation is factored in? Spending man-hours and resources on bobcat tire installation is costly, especially because it needs to be done more frequently compared to solid bobcat tires.
  • What is the cost to repair air-filled bobcat tires when they go flat? One of the biggest drawbacks of air-filled bobcat tires is that when they’re punctured, they deflate. Every time this happens, the bobcat tires must be removed and repaired before the machine becomes functional again. This process can lead to big costs, as labor and downtime are required in order to make the repair. With solid bobcat tires, there are no flats to worry about, and none of the associated expenses or hassles.
  • How much are you spending on downtime during repairs? Consider how many hours are spent dealing with flat bobcat tires instead of working on the project you've been hired to do. Using your job's hourly charge-out rate, you can calculate the cost/hour of your tires. The cheaper the bobcat tires, the more downtime is required, which ultimately costs you money.

Now for comparison, let's look at the average cost/hour from Evolution Wheel's solid bobcat tires, across several industries.

Industry:

Average Cost/Hour:

Rock Quarry

$1.16 USD/tire

Demolition

$1.30 USD/tire

Waste Transfer Station

$1.25 USD/tire

Dairy Farm

$0.80 USD/tire

General Agriculture

$0.60 USD/tire

The numbers speak for themselves! Buying high-quality bobcat tires results in lower cost/hour. If you want to save money on equipment, well-designed products will ultimately yield greater returns. Although air-filled bobcat tires cost less up front, in the long run solid bobcat tires are well worth the initial higher investment as they save repair, downtime, replacement and many more other costs.
