GREENVILLE, S.C.—Michelin North America Inc.'s X Tweel line has been selected as an original equipment fitment on two 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. Joe Conrad, president of Mean Green Mowers, said in a statement that the mowers are quieter, produce zero emissions and require minimal routine maintenance while offering fuel savings.
"Our collaboration with Michelin continues our environmental journey," he said.
