TM6116/13500 Large OTR Tire Service Truck

To meet the demanding requirements of tire service technicians, Stellar has created the TM6116/13500 OTR Tire Service Truck.

When mounted with the Stellar® TM6116/13500 Tire Manipulator, the carrier can handle tires up to 116″ in diameter and up to 6,000 lbs. Without the tire manipulator, the carrier can lift 13,500 lbs @ 10′ from the centerline of the carrier’s rotation.


The TM6116/13500 has fold-down style stabilizers with a wide stance to give excellent stability whether mounted on a single- or optional tandem-axle chassis. This stabilizer system also offers excellent serviceability of all cylinders and hoses.

As with all Stellar OTR Tire Service Trucks, the carrier incorporates a hexagonal boom design. This boom design is well known in the industry for its excellent strength and durability.
