The Galaxy Hulk: A Souped-up Solid Tire With More Rubber

Skid steers are commonly tasked with working in harsh, tire-killing terrain, leading to frustration with unanticipated downtime and tires that don’t meet expectations. When adding to our broad range of skid steer tires, it felt logical to offer a solid tire for the most brutal conditions—enter the Galaxy Hulk SDS. Reminiscent of Home Improvement handyman Tim “The Toolman” Taylor’s catchphrase, “more power,” we souped up this special solid tire with more rubber!

How the Tire Stole Christmas

Every worker in the warehouse liked Christmas a lot,
But the tire, who worked in the warehouse, Did NOT!
The tire loathed Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be the tire just wasn’t mounted right.
It could be, perhaps, working long hours into the night.
But many think that the most likely reason,
May have been that the tire was not built for the holiday season.
Whatever the cause, the loads or the floors,
The tire moved through the warehouse, hating its chores,
Keeping forklifts, reach trucks, and workers aflow,
Moving quickly to get packages into the stows,
For the tire knew every person and machine in the DC,
Was busy with packages bound for the Christmas tree.
