Louisville, Kentucky – Michelin North America Inc. is adding three turf products for mowers to its Tweel airless radial line, the company said at the Green Industry Expo in Louisville.
The new products are the 15-inch ZTR caster design for larger commercial diesel mowers; the 22-inch Turf size ZTR mowers for the prosumer market; and a hub for electric ZTR mowers made by Mean Green.
"We continue to work with commercial mower manufacturers to supply the Tweel no-compromise solution for larger and heavier commercial mowers as well as smaller mowers for the prosumer market," said Justin Brock, marketing manager for the construction and Tweel segment in North America.
To accompany large diesel ZTR mowers that use a 26-inch drive tire, the 15-inch X Tweel Turf will debut in 2020.
The 15x6N6 size configuration is designed to provide enhanced performance and more stability with its flat, smooth-rubber tread design and is able to fit a large range of mowers, including the John Deere Z997R Diesel.
The tire has a load capacity of 370 pounds and a 16 mph speed rating.
