Morghew Park Estate Chooses Michelin and Mitas Fitments
Morghew Park Estate has selected a new tyre fitment policy across three of the off-road vehicles it uses to support its commercial shooting, which takes place around a 2,000 acre Estate in Tenterden, Kent. One of the first changes made was to fit new Michelin 280/80 R18 MXCL tyres to the primary shoot transport – a 1968 ex-Belgian Army Mercedes Benz Unimog 404S, powered by a 2.2 litre petrol engine. The vehicle had previously featured an ageing set of Russian tyres which were not providing the necessary grip to enable the driver to make proper use of the simultaneous front and rear diff locks.
Piers Carey, Farm manager on the Morghew Park Estate, explained: “When the terrain got challenging, the tyres on the Unimog just weren’t up to the job. ATS Euromaster advised us to fit Michelin MXCL’s and they have transformed the Unimog into a transporter which can tackle the steepest and muddiest terrain we encounter.”
