Fleet audit: what is the main benefit of agricultural tyres?

Performing an audit of your fleet assets is a good opportunity to review the compatibility of your agricultural machines with all your available implements. We often associate a tractor and the implement purchased at the same time with a specific work objective. But it may be astute to reconsider whether your equipment is really a good match and make the choice to adapt certain combinations, by...

What is the impact of implement settings on tractor tyres?

If you notice unusual tractor tyre wear, this may be an indication of a problem with your implement settings. After having checked air pressure and tractor tyre alignment, if everything seems in order, the problem may be linked to your tooling, so you should check your implement settings in relation to your tractor. To avoid this type of problem, you must always respect the overall coherence...

Which agricultural tyre makes it possible to avoid coming off the rim at low pressure?

Preserving your soil by avoiding excess compaction is a good strategy to secure future yields. To prevent compaction you know that you should work at low pressure, and having referred to the manufacturer recommendations you see that you can reduce the inflation pressure in your standard tyres. However, working at low pressure means that there are more rules to follow so that you do not transform...

Why should you check your harvesting tyres before the start of the harvest?

Did you know that that most incidents involving harvesting tyres occur at the very beginning of the season and that the issues arising are generally the consequences of a problem encountered during the previous season?

There is a rising number of tractors or harvesters that are equipped with tracks, so it is natural to wonder whether it would be wise to opt for this type of equipment which has many benefits if you work with powerful machines and very large implements. However, technological advancements in the field of tyre manufacturing also make it possible to work with powerful machinery and it’s quite...

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...
