Spacer Telehandlers Receiving Tire Upgrades Spacer
Telehandlers Receiving Tire Upgrades
Since tires are one of the largest expenses in maintaining a telehandler, part of the tire industry’s quest is to offer telehandler owners and users better reliability, traction, ride, life and cost of ownership. The three main types of telehandler tires are pneumatic (air filled), foam filled and solid rubber.

JLG, Lull® and SkyTrak® telehandlers have all been upgraded with Firestone DuraForce MH tires.
