Ken-Tool introduces cage for inflating small, non-highway usage utility tires

Ken-Tool Corp. has added its latest, and smallest, tire cage to its line of tire inflation restraining devices with the introduction of the 36000-T107 Utility Tire Inflation Cage.

The Utility Tire Cage is designed for tires for turf care equipment, golf carts, all-terrain vehicles and personal mobility scooters which are too small to be safely placed in a large passenger or truck tire cage.

the 36000-T107 Utility Tire Inflation Cageis designed solely for non-highway use tires, carrying the letters NHS (Non-Highway Service) on the tire’s sidewall. The company emphasizes it is not to be used on highway tires, nor NHS industrial tires or multi-piece wheels.

The cage features four bars made of high-grade steel bar stock, and is similar in design to Ken-Tool’s passenger car/light truck, heavy-duty and earthmover tire inflation cages, and is made in the U.S.A. It is rated to 80 psi, and addresses the possibility of a tire bursting because of over-pressurizing, damage or age; or slipping off the rim.

The cage is 17-3/8 inches (44 cm) L x 10-1/2 inches (26.7 cm) W x 25-3/8 inches (64.4 cm) H, with an opening of 10 inches (25.4 cm) W x 24-7/8 inches (63 cm) H. Two 1 inch (2.54 cm) angle iron stops are on the floor to hold the tire/rim assembly upright.

The Utility Tire inflation Cage weighs 24 pounds (10.8 kg).

The Utility Tire Cage has a MSRP of $199.99, and is UPS-shipable.

Ken-Tool highly recommends the use of a clip-on chuck, a remote inflation/deflation valve and sufficient length of hose to allow the tech to stand clear during inflation.
