Vredestein Endurion now a factory option for Manitou telehandlers
Manitou telescopic handlers have become the latest products to be equipped with Vredestein agri segment tyres as original equipment. From April, they can be delivered to customers fitted with tyres from the Vredestein Endurion radial agro-industrial range.
Buyers of MLT and MLA series Manitou telehandlers produced at the Manitou Group’s plants in Ancenis, France and Castelfranco, Italy can now opt for Endurion tyres in the popular sizes 460/70 R 24 and 500/70 R 24. Vredestein shares that Manitou’s decision to offer this particular tyre is a “response to demands from dealers and end-users who have been impressed by the Endurion’s quality, durability and low overall cost of ownership.”
The Vredestein Endurion is devised for telescopic handlers, compact wheel loaders and backhoe loaders, especially in hard-soil applications. “It is characterised by a tough carcass and robust tread with a high rubber percentage in the footprint, which ensures remarkable comfort and excellent radial and lateral stability,” comments Vredestein. “The enhanced rubber compound and cleat height also guarantee an extraordinary lifespan, while the modern carcass construction optimises strength and reliability. As such, the Endurion is an ideal solution for agri-industrial equipment used primarily on hard surfaces.”
