Blevins Asphalt
Mount Vernon, MO

"The MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® SSL squats and grabs so we can get a smoother, higher quality cut."

"Blevins Asphalt is a fourth generation family-owned paving contractor in Mount Vernon, Missouri. We operate three skid steer loaders with attached asphalt milling machines. With bias tires we had three to four flats per week, sometimes two to three per day, and flats can stop production for as long as two hours. Plus, we have to spin around manhole covers which really wears out tires, and can knock them off the bead. We tried using tracks, but they are too wide for this kind of work and they only lasted about four months.

With the MICHELIN® X® TWEEL® SSL there are no flats, the traction is good, the ride is better and they last longer. And, the skid steer is more stable because there is no bounce like a bias pneumatic tire. The X® TWEEL® SSL squats and grabs so we can get a smoother, higher quality cut.

Our X® TWEEL® cores were retreaded, and even though the shoulders of the TWEEL® SSLs had been impacted from repeatedly hitting steel culvert housings, the original tread deformed and conformed without catching or tearing. For the money you would spend on flats, you can buy a set of the X® TWEEL® SSLs – we love them!"
