How to adjust wheel alignment and avoid wearing out my tractor tyres

Irregular wear to your tractor tyres is an early warning sign. Whether the tyre is worn on the inside or outside, there is probably a problem with the alignment, which is one of the main adjustment problems in agricultural tyres, which include incorrect parallelism. Over a certain period, this defect can cause up to 30% more wear to the tyres than if the problem is corrected. This represents...

Beware of the lead on four wheel drive tractors

If you’ve noticed that your front tyres wear more rapidly than your back tyres, t’s certainly because the lead ratio is wrong.

But do you know what lead is? It’s the synchronisation between the front and rear axle, and with the right adjustment it should allow your front axle to pull slightly more than the rear axle. In this case, your tractor’s pulling power will be perfect.

Manage your pressure to the ground to make your agricultural tyres last longer

To reduce your agricultural tyre budget and prevent your tyres from wearing too rapidly you need to adapt your choice of tyre and adjust your tyres optimally, making it essential to know the loads applied to each axle of your vehicle. It is the load that effectively determines the degree of pressure to your tyres and as such their wear...

Which agricultural tyres improve the tractive force of your tractor?

In general, your tractor’s pulling power is associated only with its engine power. However, tyres play a fundamental role in improving traction and are widely underestimated or neglected. It is the tyres which transmit your tractor’s power to the ground to generate the tractive force. Your tyres are therefore the sole link between vehicle and ground.

How to manage your tractor tyres’ slip ratio

Does earth accumulate between the lugs of your tractor tyre? Controlling your slip ratio can contribute significantly to improving work efficiency and therefore reduce the time spent on this type of activity.

Several key elements depend on your tractor’s spin ratio. Indeed, poor management of this ratio leads to smoothing and soil compaction. The smoothing of the furrow bottom reinforces the...

Your braking capacity depends directly on your tractor tyres

Are your certain that you always know your tractor’s braking capacity? When you drive with a full trailer, have you asked yourself what stopping distance is necessary in the event of emergency braking? Your tractor tyres play a decisive role in your capacity to brake rapidly and certain tyres can help you win a few meters whereas others require almost double the distance for your trailer to...

Tractor tyres are crucial for successful ploughing

Preparing the structure of the soil is vital to ensure your next crop emerges rapidly and regularly and to facilitate the circulation of vehicles and tooling.Unfortunately, a bad choice of tyre, incorrect tyre pressure or ill-adapted tyre size may squash your ploughing work and result in excessive soil compaction, leading to an uneven surface and overly compacted areas which will reduce the...
