The company has partnered with Continental on TeleMaster solid, flat-proof tires designed for telehandlers.
Available as an option on select JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers, the tire is made of highly specialized rubber compounds. The tire’s inner layer combines damping properties with a low rolling resistance value, which contributes to a comfortable ride, reduced delamination, and low heat buildup for reduced wear, according to JLG. Reinforced sidewalls protect against punctures and cuts, and the tire’s non-directional tread pattern means fewer assembly combinations and reduced inventory-carrying cost. The tires also feature a distinctive center rib. The circumferential rib tread pattern ensures high traction in both directions and promotes self-cleaning when used on sites with mud or gravel. And because TeleMaster is a solid tire, it eliminates the need to check inflation pressure or fill it with polyurethane.
