Michelin North America partnershipMichelin North America, Greenville, S.C., and Hiab USA, Perrysburg, Ohio, have entered into a joint partnership to place the Michelin X TWEEL TMF tire with the Moffett M8 NX and Princeton PB 55+ series forklifts. Both Moffett and Princeton are brands of Hiab USA. 

The tires are designed for rough-terrain applications and feature a load capacity of 5,310 lbs. They’re also reversible so they can be used in any of the three-wheel positions. The tire design incorporates an all-terrain tread pattern for traction on a variety of surfaces. 

“We are ecstatic to partner with Hiab USA to offer Tweels on their world-class Moffett truck-mounted forklifts,” said Tony Marconi, business director for Michelin Tweel Technologies. “The opportunity to expand Michelin’s airless radial tire technology into this new segment – where machine uptime is critical for efficient material handling and delivery – is an important partnership for both Moffett and Michelin. The Moffett and Princeton brands are the clear leaders in the market and provide the perfect platforms to showcase our technology.”
