Impact of the loaded radius for my agricultural tyres

There are many technical notions concerning your agricultural tyres that are worth knowing and understanding, because they can help you improve the quality of your work and your yields. One such notion is the loaded radius, which designates the distance from the centre of the tyre and the ground. The shorter the distance, the better the traction, the more you preserve your soil and the less fuel...

Load comparison between standard agricultural tyres and VF tyres

Your existing implements have a pre-defined weight which you cannot change, and if you buy new implements they will logically be bigger to improve productivity and therefore certainly heavier. If you cannot modify the weight of each implement, you will have to compensate for this load by increasing the air pressure in your tyres. This is the usual choice that is made with standard tyres,...

Which vibrations are directly linked to agricultural tyres?

There are many possible reasons that cause your agricultural machinery to vibrate, one of them being your tyres. These natural vibrations linked to the form of the lugs can either be very slight and without consequence if all the settings are correct, or really problematic if they lead to an increase of the tractor vibrations which is felt strongly in the cab. Furthermore, abnormal vibration of...

What are the 4 top stress factors for your agricultural tyres?

Having powerful and sophisticated tractors, or high-capacity implements is not enough to really develop your productivity if you do not take into account the tyres which have an intermediary role between the machine and the ground, and allow you to make the most of your engine power. The tyre plays an essential role in the tractor’s overall efficiency and you must consider its capacities based...

Which agricultural tyre technology to choose? Standard, IF or VF?

The tyre is an essential part of your machine, which transmits engine power to the ground. When it comes to renewing your tyres, it’s always important to consider the choice of tyre technology. This choice depends on how you use your tractor, with it being crucial to distinguish between a tractor used for regular field crop operations in the fields and a tractor which is used in the farmyard or...

Changing agricultural tyre series: how does it work?

When you replace your agricultural tyres, you have the opportunity of boosting your tractor’s capacities at a minimum cost. Changing tyre size effectively allows you to increase the load capacity considerably without increasing inflation pressure, to improve your traction capacity and reduce soil compaction while continuing to work with heavy implements. Swapping tyre series for larger tyres,...

Agricultural tyre evolution, what impact on my farm?

Tyres have continued to evolve constantly since the invention of the agricultural tyre by Harvey Firestone in 1930, the tyre having never ceased to adapt to serve the needs of farmers better. Over long periods of time, trends take shape which make it possible to define exactly what works best and what allows you to really improve productivity and yields. This kind of information lets you know...

How do you ensure that your tractor tyres have a good self-cleaning capacity?

In wet conditions, work in the fields can easily become problematic when you don’t have the self-cleaning capacity of your tractor tyres or implements under tight control. Slip effectively always begins with too much earth accumulating between the tyre lugs without you really knowing why. Yet when you start to slip, working gets complicated, the tyres seal over the soil, there is loss of...
