JLG to fit Firestone
JLG has announced that it has reached an agreement with Bridgestone Americas to fit Firestone DuraForce MH long-life tyres to its American built JLG, Lull and SkyTrak telehandler ranges.
The company claims that the new low profile tyres will virtually triple tyre life, while also being less prone to side wall damage.
The design also incorporates a “unique self-cleaning tread” and offers lower ground bearing pressure, helping improve performance over rough terrain. JLG will also benefit from fewer tyre and rim combinations mean fewer parts to stock and reduced inventory-carrying costs.

The Firestone DuraForce MH tyre is said to increase tyre life by 300%
Brian Boeckman, JLG’s global director of telehandler product management said: “JLG and Bridgestone Americas Off Road collaborated to create the Firestone DuraForce MH that will set a new industry standard by increasing tire life up to 300 percent. The result is a tire that dramatically improves the cost of ownership for all three telehandler brands.”
