Michelin unveils X-Crane AT tire
Michelin Earthmover Tires has unveiled the X-Crane AT tire for self-propelled all-terrain cranes used in highway, bridge and other construction projects.
Michelin officials say the X-Crane AT boasts 7% less rolling resistance due to "specially developed rubber compounds and an innovative tread design."
All-terrain cranes travel on public highways and roads in between lifting operations. They can have up to 12 axles, lifting capacities of 35 tons to 600 tons, and travel at speeds of more than 50 mph.
