Michelin has announced that the Mean Green Evolution Commercial ZTR model can now be equipped with the Michelin X Tweel Turf airless radial drive tires.
The Mean Green Evo ZTR-74 will have the option of being fitted with Michelin X Tweel Turf 26-inch tires (26x12N12 XL 10×8.5 +1.7 inch offset) as an original equipment (OE) rear-wheel option, or as a replacement fitment on an existing Evo ZTR-74 mower, replacing its standard 26x12x12 tire.
“We are proud to partner with Mean Green Mowers to offer Tweels on their innovative all-electric mowers,” says Tony Marconi, business director, Michelin Tweel Technologies. “We were challenged to develop a unique ‘hubless’ design that mounts directly to the motor hub drive unit. Mean Green Mowers are maintenance free, energy efficient and more environmentally friendly than traditional mowers which is consistent with our ambition to deliver sustainable solutions that reduce operating costs and downtime.”
The 26x12N12 XL size has a 1,030-pound load capacity and can be used with or without a bagger system. The new design incorporates a hub-less design and utilizes either a five-bolt configuration to attach the unit as a retrofit replacement for existing mowers, or a 10-bolt standard OE configuration for new production mowers.
“Since 2018, we have been collaborating with Michelin on our environmental journey,” says Joe Conrad, president of Mean Green Mowers. “Our team knows that the Michelin X Tweel Turf tire and caster provide an airless radial tire that has a consistent hub height, which produces an even cut and excellent lateral stability for outstanding side hill performance while reducing downtime to provide a maintenance-free solution for our customers.”
