Exmark launched its new Tractus tire and wheel combination. Designed to eliminate the flat tires that increase downtime, Tractus is available as an accessory for select Exmark Lazer Z zero-turn mower models.
to Exmark Director of Marketing, Jamie Briggs, the Tractus tire and wheel
combination is the result of a multi-year development process involving testing
both in-house and in the field.
an airless tire and wheel combination that raises the bar in every area
compared to traditional pneumatic tires is a big challenge,” Briggs said. “Our
customers rely on our equipment to perform every day, so we exhaustively tested
Tractus in the Exmark test lab, and in real-world conditions.
result is a tire and wheel combination that eliminates flat tires, increases
traction and offers longer service life. In use, Tractus also provides more
consistent ground pressure with a larger contact patch for reduced turf
compaction and a better overall cut quality.”
designed the Tractus tire and wheel combination to offer a similar ride quality
to a pneumatic tire. This increases operator comfort, while the proven tread
design offers superior traction in a wide range of turf conditions, with
reduced marking when turning on concrete.
first availability slated for early 2020, Exmark will initially offer three
Tractus versions for gasoline-powered Lazer Z models of different sizes.
