Solideal unveils track, boosts capacity
Solideal Tire's new Tiger rubber track boasts a dual angle tread, "which gives you the traction you need in agriculture," says Mike Giordano, director of Solideal's track division.
Solideal is producing the Tiger track as a replacement option for John Deere tractors that run exclusively on tracks.
Solideal CEO Al Harker says the company's new production facility in China should be up and running by next month.
The Lebanon, Tenn.-based specialty tire manufacturer also is boosting its capacity in Sri Lanka.
"Our (loader tire) capacity is stressed," says Harker.
