Camso has introduced a pair of telehandler tyres that it says “set new standards for stability, traction and resistance to damage.” Indeed, with the launch of the two tyres, the executive director of market development for the company’s Construction sector business says Camso is “building on our ‘tough is our way of life’ promise.”

David Fleischhauer adds that “the Camso TLH 732 and TLH 753 pneumatic tyres offer a rugged, lower cost option to solid rubber tyres for rental, construction and agriculture applications. Both new models feature exceptional resistance to blowouts and sidewall damage while providing greater stability for moving telehandler loads safely.”

The tyres are manufactured using rubber compounds that were developed to increase resilience and wear life. The directional tread pattern of the TLH 732 focuses on providing aggressive traction in soft soils, while the non-directional tread pattern of TLH 753 offers increased abrasion resistance for operation on mixed and hard surfaces. These second-generation products will respectively phase out the Solideal SL G2 and SL G3.

The sidewall design of both new TLH products includes an enhanced impact guard that reverses the traditional tyre profile to deflect objects and debris away from the tyre. Camso also optimised the tread pattern to provide more stable footing for lifting and moving as load balances shift with the dynamic loading on a telescopic boom.

Recommended for soft-soil jobsites, the TLH 732 highlights a new directional wraparound tread pattern with massive tread depth and stepped-design features to improve debris clean-out and deliver best in off-road traction. In addition to the improvement to the sidewalls, the TLH 732 further resists damage with a void guard to reinforce the sizable spaces between the tread lugs in order to prevent punctures and minimise flats.

The non-directional TLH 753 tread resists abrasion and wear on hard-packed, asphalt or concrete surfaces and comes in standard or low-profile models. Camso says its deep stepped tread and optimised lug-to-void ratio deliver excellent traction on softer ground. “The TLH 753 is today’s best value for general purpose telehandler duty, especially for customers who can’t predict the machine’s working conditions day by day. This is a tyre that can live longer in the telehandler environment, without simply adding more rubber and more cost,” says Fleischhauer.

Uptime and safety are key factors for customer satisfaction in the rental business. By resisting blowouts and sidewall damage, Camso’s next generation telehandler tyres offer a simple solution to the high cost of service calls for equipment rental stores. “The vast majority of telehandlers in the field are actually in rental fleets,” notes Fleischhauer. “These TLH tyres ensure fewer flats, which means lower service costs for them and more uptime for their customers.”

The TLH 732 and TLH 753 are currently available in North America and will be launched worldwide 1 June 2016.
