JLG Industries Inc. announced an agreement with Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, off road tire division for the exclusive supply of the Firestone DuraForce MH tires on JLG, Lull and SkyTrak branded telehandlers.

“JLG and Bridgestone Americas Off Road collaborated to create the Firestone DuraForce MH that will set a new industry standard by increasing tire life up to 300 percent,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries global director of product management for telehandlers. “The result is a tire that dramatically improves the cost of ownership for all three telehandler brands.”

The low profile tire design minimizes the opportunity for sidewall damage while the self-cleaning tread coupled with low ground bearing pressure optimizes performance in rough terrain conditions, according to the manufacturer

Fewer tire and rim combinations mean fewer parts to stock and reduced inventory-carrying costs for JLG distribution.
