GREENVILLE, S.C., Jan. 4, 2018 – Michelin North America, Inc., is partnering with CASE Construction Equipment to add the MICHELIN® 10N16.5 and 12N16.5 X® TWEEL® SSL as factory-approved/supplied option for skid steers loaders. The single unit SSL airless radial tire will be available as an original-equipment (OE) option on all CASE skid steer loader models in 2018. The SSL All-Terrain version is designed for rugged off-road working conditions and, a viable option for industries such as construction, landscaping, and agriculture.
“This is a win-win for TWEEL SSL and CASE customers,” said Justin Brock, Michelin construction segment marketing manager in North America. “Building relationships in the market is our goal. The market demand for Michelin X TWEEL SSL continues to increase. More and more end users are searching for solutions that reduce downtime. The TWEEL SSL provides the users this solution, without compromising key deliverables including traction, operator comfort and machine productivity. With uptime so crucial for customers, the MICHELIN X TWEEL provides an unparalleled solution.”
The TWEEL offers the advantages of no maintenance, no compromise, no downtime — the X TWEEL SSL requires no air, thereby eliminating the risk of a "flat tire" and allowing users to stay in operation with limited downtime to maximize profitability and cost per hour from the solution. The X TWEEL SSL also delivers the advantages of easy mounting, damage resistance, exceptional operator comfort, reduced operator fatigue, improved productivity and longer wear life than standard pneumatic tires. The AT models feature a deep open tread design for excellent cleaning and traction, and a deep layer of undertread allows the core to be retread.
