FRANKLIN, Tenn. — Carlstar Group L.L.C., maker of ATV, lawn and garden, and agricultural tires, has launched the Carlisle Versa Turf, a radial R3 tire designed reduced turf impact in lawn and garden applications.
The Versa Turf tires come in sizes 18x8.50R10 (6L09621) and 26x12R12 (6L0915) and will be available to order in November.
"The Versa Turf is the perfect blend of R1 traction with R3 turf protection," Brian Preheim, market segment manager, said.
"The tire is ... constructed to optimize tire-to-soil impact without damaging the turf."
Designed with a radial construction for reduced turf impact, the Versa Turf minimizes turf disturbance while maximizing traction with a tread that's 60% deeper thatn a standard R3 tire design, Carlstar said.
The tire is engineered with superior mud-shedding performance by featuring self-cleaning breaker bars in the tread and rounded shoulders. This design reduces turf damage during turns while improving traction in all conditions.
Carlstar will debut the Versa Turf at the Green Industry & Equipment (GIE) Expo in Louisville Oct. 16-18, at booth #276.
