Manitou TJ Series mobile elevating work platforms (MEWP) are now available with all-new flotation tires. According to the company, the tires offer greater stability and traction while operating on soft ground. High-flotation tires also help minimize turf damage and deliver improved traction on wet ground and surfaces, it says.

The tires feature a 36.48-inch diameter and 17.83-inch width, and are rated for loads up to 14,300 pounds on Manitou TJ Series lifts

“Rental businesses, contractors and service providers who provide equipment to/work in off-road operations with softer underfoot conditions will be able to operate more effectively over those surfaces,” says Brian Rabe, product marketing and training manager. “It will also help ensure less disturbance to finished turf and grading with greater flotation—minimizing cleanup/rework operations.”
