HAMILTON, Ohio — Mean Green Products has selected Michelin North America Inc.'s X Tweel line as original equipment fitments on a pair of its Mean Green Mowers models.
The X Tweel Turf 18-inch drive wheels were chosen as OE on the Mean Green Stalker stand-on ZTR and CXR -60 ride-on ZTR models. The stand-on ZTR model also will include 13-inch caster airless radial tires.
Michelin's 24-inch X Tweel Turf tires will be offered as replacement fitments for the Mean Green 52-inch and 60-inch ride-on mowers, replacing a standard 24x12x12 tire, according to the tire maker.
Mean Green's electric zero-turn mowers are designed as environmental and economical alternatives to more traditional mowers. Mean Green Mowers President Joe Conrad noted that the mowers are quieter, produce zero emissions and require minimal routine maintenance while offering fuel savings.
"Our collaboration with Michelin," he said, "continues our environmental journey."
