ConExpo debut for new tyres


Michelin North America will expand its current backhoe product offering this year. Two new tyres will be previewed at the 2014 CONEXPO‐CON/AGG show March 4‐8 in Las Vegas.

Upon introduction of these tires later this year, Michelin will offer a full product portfolio to serve the North American backhoe market.
Included are:

  • The MICHELIN® Power CL™, scheduled for a July launch, is a premium bias ply tire that can handle the same load capacity as a radial tyre, but with bias ply cost savings.
  • The MICHELIN® BibLoad™ Hard Surface (HS) radial tire, planned for a November launch, is the hard surface version of the MICHELIN® XMCL™ all‐terrain backhoe radial tyre.

Designed for asphalt and other hard surface applications, the MICHELIN® BibLoad™ HS tyre will expand Michelin’s product offering to better meet the needs of the backhoe market. It features radial construction, steel belts and reinforced casing for puncture resistance and a non‐directional tread design, fairly new to the U.S., for superior performance regardless of the tires’ rotational direction.
