Tough by design: our new telehandler tires debut at the Rental Show
Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, showcased its next generation of telehandler tires, the Camso TLH 732 and the Camso TLH 753, at the ARA Rental Show in Atlanta from February 21 to 24.
“The development process for these telehandler tires was based on extensive customer research, scrap pile analyses and field surveys of equipment rental businesses,” says David Fleischhauer, Executive Director, Market Development – Construction.
“We also conducted our own scrap pile analysis where we learned that 27% of discarded tires showed significant damage to the tread or sidewall. So for enhanced sidewall protection, we developed an impact guard to deflect debris, protect sidewalls and reduce stress cracking to minimize tire failure. On the tread surface we have applied void protectors in between the lugs to provide protection against impact damage while not sacrificing traction or debris clean-out,” concludes Fleischhauer.
Also on display were the three newly launched pneumatic and solid tires for skid steer loaders (the Camso SKS 732, 775 and 793S), as well as a solid telehandler tire designed with triangular apertures to improve ride quality (the Camso TLH 792S). Plus, rental operators could get a closer look at some of the Camso track such as the versatile Camso CTL SD all-season tracks for compact track loaders and the Camso MEX SD heavy-duty tracks for mini-excavators. The Camso team of experienced, rental-savvy tire and track experts was on-site at the ARA Rental Show to answer questions about how to equip a fleet with the right mix of products based on specific applications and reduced downtime to provide the lowest operating cost solution.
