LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Michelin North America Inc. has added John Deere tractor dealer Ag-Pro Companies and parts wholesaler Sunbelt Outdoor Products Inc. to the the distribution network for its Tweel non-pneumatic tire/wheel product line.
The naming of Ag-Pro and Sunbelt as a Tweel distributor coincides with the addition of a pair of new sizes/fitments for zero-turn mowers, which Michelin Wheel Technologies is debuting at the Green Industry & Equipment Expo in Louisville.
Boston, Ga.-based Ag-Pro is a John Deere tractor dealer with 50 locations in the South/Southwest, while Charlotte, N.C.-based Sunbelt is a wholesale distributor of replacement parts for outdoor power equipment with nine distribution centers providing nationwide coverage. It also offers a range of Carlisle- and Sutong Hi-Run-brand pneumatic tires for outdoor power equipment.
The new fitments are a 26-inch size for four-bolt wheel-pattern hubs — which replaces the tire/wheel/valve assembly in use by Scag Power Equipment and other ZTR mower operators — and an 18-inch size for John Deere QuickTrak stand-on commercial mowers.
Michelin added John Deere dealers to the distribution network for the Tweel Turf product line in March.
