Airless-radial caster now available for zero-turn commercial mowers.
Michelin Tweel Technologies has announced the commercial launch of a new extension of its airless-radial tire line—the Michelin X Tweel Turf Caster—for select zero-turn commercial mowers.
The first-of-its-kind airless-radial caster tire-wheel assembly replaces the standard 13X6.5X6 front caster tire and wheel on zero-turn mowers. It eliminates downtime from punctures and is maintenance free.
“Michelin Tweel Technologies has conducted extensive field testing to optimize the product and validate the customer benefits,” said Olivier Brauen, head of Michelin Tweel Technologies. “Professional landscape companies have found that the Tweel Caster increases productivity by allowing operators to mow faster, reduces maintenance on mowers due to the caster’s shock-absorbing characteristics, and provides improved performance over curbs.”
