Exmark launched its new Tractus tire and wheel combination. Designed to eliminate the flat tires that increase downtime, Tractus is available as an accessory for select Exmark Lazer Z zero-turn mower models.
According to Exmark Director of Marketing, Jamie Briggs, the Tractus tire and wheel combination is the result of a multi-year development process involving testing both in-house and in the field.
“Offering an airless tire and wheel combination that raises the bar in every area compared to traditional pneumatic tires is a big challenge,” Briggs said. “Our customers rely on our equipment to perform every day, so we exhaustively tested Tractus in the Exmark test lab, and in real-world conditions.
“The result is a tire and wheel combination that eliminates flat tires, increases traction and offers longer service life. In use, Tractus also provides more consistent ground pressure with a larger contact patch for reduced turf compaction and a better overall cut quality.”
Exmark designed the Tractus tire and wheel combination to offer a similar ride quality to a pneumatic tire. This increases operator comfort, while the proven tread design offers superior traction in a wide range of turf conditions, with reduced marking when turning on concrete.
With first availability slated for early 2020, Exmark will initially offer three Tractus versions for gasoline-powered Lazer Z models of different sizes.
