Camso launches new solid telehandler tire to support the growing rental industry

Magog, QC, March 9, 2020 – Camso launches the new TLH 592S, a solid tire for telehandlers that provides flat-free operations, proven durability and ultimate value. With this new solution, Camso consolidates its telehandler product range, which now includes two grades of solid tires and multiple pneumatic solutions.

The new Camso TLH 592S has been developed to support rental companies in providing clients with a reliable and safe solution throughout the entire service of the telehandlers they lease. Although they are getting more versatile given the different attachments available, to this day, the most common application is on construction sites where the telehandlers use forks to move and lift loads at various heights, often on unstable and unfinished surface conditions.

“Nowadays, most telehandlers coming out of the OEM factories are purchased by rental companies. On one hand, rental companies need to maximize their profit, while on the other hand, they must provide the best and most productive solutions to their customers,” explains Dominic Gosselin, Product Manager, Americas – Construction Tires. “Since the introduction of premium solutions like the Camso TLH 792S, we’ve been able to demonstrate how solid tires improve productivity and provide a better return on investment for machines that are heavily used for several years. But this doesn’t mean a premium solution necessarily is the right solution every time.”

In some rental yards, there is a lower utilization rate on telehandlers while in others, the machines will be replaced and sold to auctions shortly. The Camso TLH 592S came to meet this need of a more affordable solution for such clients, without compromising on requirements such as maximum stability, flat resistance and service life.

The lowest operating cost solution throughout the telehandler lifecycle

“Even though telehandler owners know solid tires are more sustainable and robust, their price can remain a constraint to switching their machines to solid solutions. Now, with our two different grades of solid telehandler tires, we believe rental and construction companies will be able to gain in productivity and in safety,” adds Gosselin.

The Camso TLH 592S (available in sizes 13.00 and 14.00-24), has been designed to combine flat-free operations and durable performance at an affordable price. Along with the TLH 792S – Camso’s toughest, extreme-duty solution for telehandlers and OEM favorite – it offers a cost-effective solid replacement tire. It benefits from the same patented triangular aperture geometry for optimized stability, strength and comfort. Its solid tire technology ensures a puncture-proof solution, while its extra-deep directional tread design offers optimal service life, cuts and chunking resistance, and improved traction.

The Camso TLH 592S is now available at most dealerships across North America, please visit your local dealer of camso.co for more information.
