McConnellsburg, Pennsylvania — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, has partnered with Continental to provide JLG customers with the TeleMaster solution, a solid, flat-proof tire designed to meet the specific demands of telehandlers.
“Telehandlers are used in a variety of job site environments,” said John Boehme, JLG Industries senior product manager, telehandlers. “This, coupled with the fact that they work in various demanding applications, means they require tires with outstanding durability. The new TeleMaster tires meet this requirement with their sturdy three-layer construction.”
Available as an option on select JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers, the TeleMaster is made of highly specialized rubber compounds that work together to offer a comfortable ride, excellent traction, and longer service life for lower total cost of ownership.
The tire’s inner layer combines damping properties with a low rolling resistance value, which contributes to a comfortable ride, reduced delamination, and low heat buildup for reduced wear. Reinforced sidewalls protect against punctures and cuts, and the tire’s non-directional tread pattern means fewer assembly combinations and reduced inventory carrying costs.
TeleMaster tires also features a distinctive center rib. The circumferential rib tread pattern ensures high traction in both directions and promotes self-cleaning when used on sites with mud or gravel. And because TeleMaster is a solid, flat-proof tire solution, it removes the need to check inflation pressure or fill it with polyurethane.
