Case Construction Equipment announced the availability of Michelin X Tweel SSL all-terrain airless radial tires as a factory-approved/supplied option on all skid steer loader models. Airless radial tires perform just like a pneumatic tire, but without the risk and costly downtime associated with penetrations and impact damage. Case is the first skid steer loader OEM to offer the Michelin X Tweel SSL from the factory, according to the manufacturer.

The Michelin X Tweel SSL is one single unit, replacing traditional tire/wheel/valve assemblies. There is no need for complex wheel/tire mounting equipment. There is no air pressure to maintain once each tire is bolted on. 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 many times.

“Case offers a broad range of skid steer tires to meet the needs of a variety of applications from general dirt work and landscaping, to road-building, excavation and mining/aggregate environments,” said George MacIntyre, product manager, skid steer loaders, Case Construction Equipment.

“The addition of airless radial tires to our lineup of factory-available options expands our current offering and shows our commitment to advanced technology, as well as our dedication to providing our customers with a growing array of machine options that can have a positive impact on total cost of ownership.”

The Michelin X Tweel SSL provides enhanced stability and enables a skid steer loader to work rapidly with more comfort for the operator, reducing driver fatigue while improving productivity. It delivers a consistent footprint with strong wear life that is two-to-three times that of a pneumatic tire at equal tread depth. The proprietary design provides great lateral stiffness, while resisting damage and absorbing impacts. Additionally, the unique energy transfer within the high-strength poly-resin spokes reduces the “bounce” associated with pneumatic tires, according to the manufacturer.
