WAKEFIELD, Mass.—Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. has added a Comfort line to its Brawler HPS (high-performance solid) telehandler tire range, offering reduced vibration and improved driving of telehandlers and compact wheel loaders in waste and recycling applications.
According to Trelleborg, the line of solid tires maximizes ride comfort and performance in demanding environments. It will be available in North America in January.
Alessio Bucci, the product marketing senior manager at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, said waste and recycling applications are "extremely demanding" on tires, which often are damaged or punctured during operations.
Bucci said Trelleborg believes driver comfort is essential for productivity.
"After receiving a very positive market response to our Brawler 25-inch HPS soft ride line, we decided to extend the concept to our smaller 24-inch range of HPS tires for telehandlers and compact wheel loaders."
