The advantages of a good agricultural tyre in wine and fruit growing activities

Even if vines or fruit trees in the orchard have deep roots, there is also a large part of their root system which is close to the surface to capture the moisture or micronutrients present in the arable layer of the soil which is much richer than the lower layers. The repeated circulation of agricultural machinery over the same spot over several years will compact the soil, block root...

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,...

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....

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...

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...

The best agricultural tyres for agricultural contracting companies

The management of agricultural tyre costs cannot be the same for agricultural contracting firms as for farmers, because the number of tyres is much higher, the number of hours’ work for each tractor is much higher and the number of kilometres to drive by road to reach the clients’ farms is incomparable. An investment in top-of-the-range tyres makes much more sense, even though it is always...

Which agricultural tyre configuration is suited to each use

There is a simple reason why manufacturers produce different tyre models. It’s not for the pleasure of creating a tyre size catalogue, but actually because there are very different kinds of strain imposed on your tyres depending on what you use them for. You know that to do a good job you need to be well equipped, and for your tyres this principle is very pertinent because, if you go beyond...

What materials guarantee the quality of your tractor tyres

Agricultural tyres generally appear quite similar irrespective of the brand, which makes it relatively difficult to spot the difference visually between top quality tyres and discount tyres. The price therefore wrongly becomes a differentiating element, as you may get the impression that you are paying for the brand rather than for the tyre, like for certain consumer goods. Yet there is a huge...
