The Tweel SSL from Michelin North America Inc. has earned its first original equipment fitment on a skid steer loader. All 2018 skid steers from Case Construction Equipment will offer the Tweel as an OE option. The 10N16.5 and 12N16.5 X Tweel SSL is designed for rugged off-road working conditions in industries such as construction, landscaping and agriculture.
“This is a win-win for Tweel SSL and Case customers,” says Justin Brock, Michelin's 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.”
With no need for air, Michelin says the Tweel helps users stay in operation and minimize downtime, which maximizes their profitability. The company says the Tweel also offers easy mounting, damage resistance, 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.
