Michelin premium radial and hard surface tyres for backhoes
Bibload backhoe loader tyre on the Michelin stand in North Hall
Michelin has launched two additional tyres for backhoe loaders and telescopic handlers. The Power CL, which will go on sale in July this year, is a premium bias ply tyre that can handle the same load capacity as a radial, but at a lower cost. Michelin will have a full size offering for this tyre by the end of the year. Also available is the BibLoad Hard Surface radial that has steel belts and reinforced casings for added sidewall protection. With a non-directional tread pattern the BibLoad tyre is designed for prolonged use on asphalt and other hard surfaces.
Michelin is also increasing the number of size options for its X Crane mobile crane tyres and the X-Super Terrain articulated dump truck range. This includes a new X Crane size of 525/80R25, which is particularly popular in the North American crane market and a 23.5R25 ADT tyre that will be introduced in the third quarter.
