Group Michelin’s Tweel Technologies has launched the airless Michelin X Tweel Turf Caster for select zero-turn commercial mowers. The airless-radial caster tire-wheel assembly replaces the standard 13×6.5×6 front caster tire and wheel on zero-turn mowers.
“Michelin Tweel Technologies has conducted extensive field testing to optimize the product and validate the customer benefits,” said Olivier Brauen, head of Michelin Tweel Technologies.
The Tweel caster is constructed with high-strength poly-resin spokes that carry the load and create suspension-like characteristics for the front of the mower, the company said.

The caster’s durable, poly-resin tread also provides long wear life, Michelin said.
