RhinoGator: A new kind of pivot tire

New pivot tire

RhinoGator is a new generation of industrial-quality, high-density plastic tire designed specifically for the rigors, weight and environmental conditions that are common under pivots.

According to the product description, the green-colored tire never goes flat and is waterproof and will not fill up with water or mud.

The tough, high-density plastic resin formulation was specifically chosen for a wide range of conditions unique to pivot systems including bearing weight, stress and torque, material consistency, ease of handling and exposure to sunlight, moisture and chemicals.

The formulation includes renewable plastic made from corn.

RhinoGator carries the longest UV protection package available in the plastics industry.

The tread design was computer-engineered for maximum ground-gripping traction on wet soils – even up inclines that challenge standard rubber tires.

The non-directional tread ensures maximum performance clockwise or counterclockwise. The beefy center rib makes for a lower profile sidewall for added strength, reduced hill slippage and better self-cleaning, and a large anti-slip plate ensures that the tire stays firmly on the rim.

RhinoGator can be easily installed using standard wrenches and typical safety equipment. It's currently available in two sizes, 11.2-38 and 11.2-24.

The tires can be installed in combination with ordinary rubber tires on a pivot system or as a ready-to-mount tire-wheel assembly.

The product is available exclusively from Dawson Tire & Wheel of Gothenburg, Nebraska.  FG
