Michelin Airless Agri Tyre Ready For Lamma

Michelin Airless Agri Tyre Ready For Lamma

Michelin’s X Tweel SSL airless tyre and wheel combination will be making its UK public debut at the forthcoming LAMMA Show on January 17th next. For several years, Michelin has sold its range of Tweel products for mowing, agricultural and industrial applications in North America — but the tyre manufacturer’s fitment for skid steer loaders will be the first Tweel to arrive this side of the Atlantic. The non-pneumatic X Tweel SSL will be available in two versions — the All Terrain (AT), which features a deep, open tread for off-road applications and use on varying surfaces, and the Hard Surface Traction (HST), with its smooth tread featuring a 100 per cent contact patch, for frequent use on hard surfaces such as asphalt or concrete.

Both tyres are expected to prove popular within the farming sector, on applications ranging from scraping yards and clearing slurry to moving bedding and animal feed. The product is said to perform like a pneumatic tyre, but without the risk and costly downtime associated with penetrations and impact damage.  According to Michelin, the X Tweel SSL delivers a consistent footprint with strong wear life and little maintenance involved, as the fitment is easy to mount and doesn’t require air pressure checks.

EvoBib tractor tyre debut
Also making its UK debut at LAMMA ‘18, ahead of its international release in February, will be Michelin’s ‘2 in 1’ EvoBib tractor tyre — which features a smart tread pattern that evolves to match the application.  The tyre — which was awarded the prestigious SIMA Innovation Gold Medal last year — was designed to support farmers who increasingly opt for larger machinery to be driven both in the field and on the road.

RoadBib lends support to John Deere
Michelin’s RoadBib tyre range will be given an eye-catching outing at LAMMA — fitted to John Deere’s new 6250R tractor. The new generation of agricultural tyre, co-designed by Michelin and agricultural contractors, is said to be the first ever fitment for 200+hp tractors, designed to provide high performance, longevity and traction on machines used intensively on roads.
