The Michelin X Tweel Turf, the revolutionary airless radial tire that virtually eliminates tire downtime and is nearly maintenance free, is now available for standalone purchase at John Deere dealers. First launched in 2015, the Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire minimizes the cost and time spent on tire repairs and maintenance providing landscape contractors with significant cost savings.
“We are overwhelmed by the positive response the Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire has received from the commercial mowing industry since its initial launch,” said James Dutton, tactical marketing manager for John Deere. “We are dedicated to providing customers with the innovations they need to limit downtime and focus on growing their businesses. By offering the Michelin X Tweel Turf product for standalone purchase, customers can now add this technology to existing machines in their fleets.”
When launched, the Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire was sold exclusively for John Deere ZTrak 900 Series models with 54-, 60- and 72-inch deck sizes as a part of a new machine purchase. Customers will now be able to purchase the Michelin X Tweel Turf product for existing ZTrak 900 Series models, providing landscape professionals greater performance, increased uptime and a lower cost of ownership.
The Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire has the same dimensions and bolt pattern as a standard 24x12x12 tire, and features automotive rubber technology, allowing the tread to last up to three times longer than standard turf tires.
The Michelin X Tweel Turf Airless Radial Tire is certified for use on John Deere Z900 E, M, and R Series gas-power mowers with 54-, 60- and 72-inch decks.
