High Grade Manufacturing’s new BIG-2600 is a laminated wheel with a tread pattern, designed to provide better traction and fewer flats. The company created the tire as a replacement for used foam-filled aircraft tires.
The tires are 25.5×6.25” in a 5 bolt pattern, center hub hole 4” diameter with a capacity of 2,000 pounds. The tires weigh in at just 110 pounds.
“This tire has been in development for over two years. We have had it running successfully in the field on commercial cutters for 3,000+ hours. It has been tested by rotary cutter manufacturers and passed. There is no foam to break down, no air to go flat, works just like the 21” laminated tires and it has a tread pattern for better traction,” said a spokesperson for High Grade. “They are a solid rubber tire and they truly offer no flats!”
