Duals or low-pressure agricultural tyres: which to choose?

You work with very powerful machines equipped with heavy implements and you would like to improve your productivity while preserving your soil from compaction, to guarantee future yields. With standard tyres you are obliged to increase tyre inflation considerably to compensate for load, making these tyres incompatible with your soil preservation objectives. You have two remaining options,...

Does unsuitable inflation pressure accelerate wear to my agricultural tyres?

Wear is certainly one of the main problems faced by your agricultural tyres, because obviously if this wear is rapid, you will be forced to buy new tyres, leading to increasingly high costs. Daily pressure adjustments, pressure checks based on load or adapting pressure to take account of the surface on which you travel may appear to be very secondary tasks, which are often considered optional...

Technologies that make the difference for quality agricultural tyres

It’s true that agricultural tyres all look alike and it may appear difficult to choose between the models on offer, because there is no similarity between the price of a standard tyre and a top-of-the range tyre. It would be very easy to draw up a parallel with the luxury goods sector where we are used to finding commodity items with prohibitive prices just because of the prestigious brand name....

Equipment sharing cooperatives: How to manage the agricultural tyre budget?

After mechanisation costs, recurrent expenses linked to equipment certainly represent an expense item to which any member of an equipment sharing cooperative may turn to improve results at the end of the year. Better management of equipment can effectively be a real source of savings if you follow a few simple rules, or if the equipment is always used in the right conditions. Agricultural tyres...

Agricultural contracting companies: improve team awareness about tyres

Making your operators more aware of good tyre management practices may seem secondary, but the role of the tyre is much more important than you imagine for successful operations in the fields. This is the reason why a minimum amount of team training is necessary to control your tyre budget and make considerable savings by reducing tyre replacements linked to wear, by reducing fuel consumption...

Agricultural contracting companies: why to invest in a tire inflation system

For agricultural contracting companies, investing more in tractors to obtain more efficient machines is a particularly profitable choice, especially if you have a large fleet. Equipping your vehicles with tyre inflation systems is clearly a way of making real savings, but it also helps to build customer loyalty. The main argument is soil preservation on your clients’ land together with quality...

What is the right inflation pressure for any tractor tyre

Unlike a car, a tractor is a multi-purpose vehicle which can carry or pull much more than its own weight, over all types of terrain. These demands are managed by your tyres and the disparity between these demands is the reason why it is important to always have the right pressure settings, to make your equipment last over time. Carrying out pressure adjustments may seem insignificant, but for...

How do my tractor tyres impact my vineyards?

Wine growing is no exception when it comes to excessive soil compaction hindering the root development of crops, whether we’re talking about vine stocks or wheat, the same causes produce the same effects. While it’s true that winegrowing tractors tend to be much lighter than crop tractors, inter-row driving means that the tyres are very close to the vines and the soil compaction is more a result...

How to maximise traction with my tractor tyres

Not all your engine power is directed into carrying out your work. Part of this power is used to operate your tractor and another part is lost due to incorrect settings or failure to optimise your equipment. The power dedicated to traction varies from 30 to 62% depending on your choices, your settings, your equipment or your implements. You can easily boost the productivity of your tractor and...
