Continental has designed its new solid, flat-proof TeleMaster tires for JLG telehandlers in a partnership between the tire maker and aerial work platform manufacturer.
The TeleMaster tires are available as an option on certain JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers.
The tires consist of three-layer construction and specialized rubber compounds. The inner layer contains dampening properties and has a “low rolling resistance value,” which reduces de-lamination and heat buildup and makes for a more comfortable ride, JLG says. The sidewalls are reinforced to prevent punctures and cuts.
The tires feature a non-directional tread pattern and a center rib for better traction in forward and reverse. The center rib is designed to be self-cleaning on mud and gravel sites, the company says.
The tires are available for the following telehandler models:
- Size 315/95-28 – JLG 742 and 943; SkyTrak 6036, 6042 and 8042
- Size 360/85-28 – JLG 1043, 1055 and 1255; SkyTrak 10042 and 10054
