JLG and Bridgestone Americas Off Road collaborated to create the Firestone DuraForce MH, which increases tire life up to 300%.

JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company and a manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, recently signed an agreement with Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations, Off Road Tire division for the exclusive supply of the Firestone DuraForce MH tires on JLG, Lull, and SkyTrak branded telehandlers. JLG and Bridgestone Americas Off Road collaborated to create the Firestone DuraForce MH, which increases tire life up to 300%, according to Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries Global Director of Product Management for Telehandlers. The low-profile tire design is said to minimize the opportunity for sidewall damage while the self-cleaning tread coupled with low ground bearing pressure optimizes performance in rough terrain conditions. Fewer tire and rim combinations result in fewer parts to stock and reduced inventory-carrying costs for JLG distribution, the company claims.
