Non-marking tires

by Inside Logistics Online Staff

JLG Industries, Inc. now offers non-marking tires for JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers. These tires are designed specifically for telehandlers and have excellent wearing characteristics, while protecting sensitive surfaces from unwanted marks.

The new tires are available as air- or foam-filled and come with a center bar for better wear performance on abrasive surfaces. A non-directional tread means fewer assembly combinations and reduces carrying costs.

“Our new non-marking tires were specifically designed to help our customers do their job more effectively in the field, while lowering total cost of ownership,” said John Boehme, JLG senior product manager, telehandlers.

“The tires’ performance characteristics provide superior protection against scuffing and marking on delicate surfaces.”

The tires also have a reinforced carcass to help protect from base lug cracking or shadowing, as well as a reinforced sidewall to protect from impact or puncture damage.
