Goodyear introduces airless tire for Bad Boy Mowers

Goodyear has introduced an airless tire, TurfCommand, featuring a thermoplastic connecting structure, for use on a line of zero-turn lawnmowers.

The tire will be available as an upgrade option on Bad Boy Mowers’ Outlaw XP, a zero-turn radius model. Availability is expected in early 2018.

“The commercial release of this turf tire is an important step in our efforts to develop airless tire technology for a range of applications,” said Christopher Helsel, Goodyear’s chief technology officer. “As we look to a future where ridesharing and autonomous vehicles become mainstream, the demand for lower maintenance, longer lasting tires will continue to increase.”
