Michelin increases load carrying capacity of X Tweel Turf

Michelin North America, Inc., has increased the load carrying capacity of the 26x12N12 X Tweel Turf from 862 pounds to 1031 pounds to launch the new 26x12N12 X Tweel Turf XL. Users of this new 26-inch airless radial tire may choose from three hub configurations that will fit 4×4-inch and 5×4.5-inch bolt patterns for a variety of machines, including:

•          John Deere – ZTrak Z997

•          Bad Boy Mowers – Renegade Diesel and Renegade

•          Bobcat – Predator-Pro 7000

•          Exmark – Lazer X Diesel

•          Gravely – PT600

•          Hustler – Super Z Hyperdrive and Super 104

•          Kubota – ZD1211, ZG327, and ZD1511

•          Scag – Turf Tiger STTII

•          Toro – ZMaster 7500G and 7500D

“The new Michelin X Tweel Turf XL keeps all the benefits of the current Tweel it is replacing, including consistent hub height, which helps ensure the mower deck produces an even cut, excellent lateral stability on hillsides and sloped surfaces, outstanding operator comfort and no flats,” said Justin Brock, senior marketing manager, Michelin – Beyond Road Business Line. “The new XL version offers increased load capacity, which is helping us deliver solutions that meet customers’ needs in the commercial turf market.”

Once bolted on, there is no air pressure to maintain, thus eliminating the need to carry spare tires, tools or repair kits. This airless solution contains high-performance compounds and an efficient contact patch designed to provide a long wear life that is two to three times that of a pneumatic tire at equal tread depth. The Michelin X TWEEL Turf XL is available immediately for online sale or through the Michelin Tweel dealer network.
