Michelin's X TWEEL Turf tire is now available as on option on Mean Green Mower's RIVAL ride-on ZTR and stand-on Evolution ZTR model, VANQUISH.
The new offering (24x12N12 10x8.5 +1.7-in. offset) can be used as either an Original Equipment (OE) rear-wheel option, or as a replacement fitment on an existing mower, replacing the standard 24x12x12 tire.
“Mean Green and Michelin have had a successful collaboration on our environmental journey since 2018,” said Joe Conrad, president of Mean Green Mowers. “Our team knows that the MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF TIRE and caster provide an airless radial tire that has a consistent hub height. This produces an even cut and excellent lateral stability for outstanding side-hill performance to provide a maintenance-free solution for our customers. We couldn’t be happier.”
Designed to perform like pneumatic tires, the MICHELIN X TWEEL airless radial tire line replaces the current tire-and-wheel assembly, removes the need for complex mounting equipment and eliminates downtime due to flat tires.
The MICHELIN X TWEEL TURF TIRE size 24x12N12 features a 750-lbs. load capacity, which can be used with or without a bagger system. It also incorporates a hubless design, which uses either a 5-bolt configuration to attach a retrofit replacement for existing mowers, or a 10-bolt standard OE configuration for new production mowers.
