Michelin in the Field
Within the industrial sector, the biggest companies rely upon Michelin's expertise for equipping fork lift trucks with high-quality tires that also provide the benefits of a lower cost per hour solution.
The numerous positive testimonials from users also highlight a noticeable improvement in comfort. Besides the driver, the load and the machine are better protected as the radial tires act as shock absorbers. These users also talk of a major reduction in braking distances which makes for a considerable improvement in their own safety and the safety of the goods they are transporting.
Finally, the tire MICHELIN® XZM™ has a noticeably smaller carbon footprint than the solid tires sometimes used on fork lift trucks, as its manufacturing process requires fewer raw materials. Additionally, some of its constituent products can be recovered at the end of its service life, unlike solid tires.
