Helping Customer Prevent Sod Tears

Download This Solution

One of our customers recently purchased a JCB 930 Rough Terrain forklift to help out on his sod farm. Unfortunately, the factory tires that came with the machine weren’t suited for the soft sod surfaces. They were too narrow, too aggressive and did not provide the flotation he needed to get the job done. That’s when he turned to CFI!

To prevent tearing the sod, we provided 700/50-22.5 Alliance 328 flotation tires on custom-built wheels. At almost 28" wide, these tires gave him the flotation and load spread he needed. This allowed the machine to be driven across the sod without leaving deep ruts while carrying a heavy load. The new tires not only function well but look great, keeping the customer rolling.
