The Greenville-based tire maker also is adding fitment options for its Michelin X Tweel Turf 24-inch tires, expanding its partnership with Mean Green Mowers for its latest offering.
The new Michelin X Tweel Turf tires, in size 24x12N12 10x8.5 +1.7-inch offset, can be used as rear-wheel OE option or as a replacement tire for the standard 24x12x12 tire.
"We're thrilled to continue our partnership with Mean Green to offer Tweels on even more of their innovative all-electric mowers," Marconi said. "Building on the success of the innovative 'hubless' Tweel for their EVO mowers, we are exhilarated to expand this design, which mounts directly to the motor-hub-drive unit on both their Rival and Vanquish mowers."
The Michelin X Tweel Turf tire in size 24x12N12 features a 750-pound load capacity, which can be used with or without a bagger system. Its hubless design uses either a 5-bolt configuration to attach a retrofit replacement for existing mowers, or a 10-bolt standard OE configuration for new mowers.
The partnership with Mean Green represents something deeper for Michelin, which has committed to the development of sustainable mobility solutions.
"Mean Green Mowers are known for their reputation of being maintenance free, energy efficient, and more environmentally friendly than traditional mowers, remaining consistent with Michelin's ambition to deliver sustainable solutions," Michelin said.
