Trelleborg Brings Comfort to Telehandler Tires
Trelleborg Wheel Systems has expanded the Brawler HPS (High Performance Solid) telehandler tire range to include the Comfort line. The new tires are designed to reduce vibration and offer telehandler and compact wheel loader operators a more comfortable ride.
This new line of solid tires maximizes ride comfort, while delivering the best possible performance in demanding environments, like waste and recycling applications.
Alessio Bucci, product marketing senior manager at Trelleborg, says: “Waste and recycling applications are extremely demanding on tires, which are at risk of being damaged or punctured during operations. Standard solid tires give increased safety and require zero maintenance, but this often comes at the expense of operator comfort. Now, with the introduction of Trelleborg’s Comfort line for telehandlers and compact wheel loaders, drivers will experience a softer ride thanks to increased shock absorption and reduced vibration.”
Featuring a wide footprint, Trelleborg says the Comfort line tires provide better traction compared to standard solid tires. The wide, flat tread design offers stability and extended operating hours, while a deep lug tread design gives three times more wear than a pneumatic tire.
“At Trelleborg, we believe that driver comfort is essential to productivity," Bucci says. "After receiving a very positive market response to our Brawler 25-inch HPS Soft Ride line, we decided to extend the concept to our smaller 24-inch range of HPS tires for telehandlers and compact wheel loaders."
The tires are available in these four sizes: 43x15-24; 47x17-24; 13.00-24; 14.00-24.
