The air pressure in your tractor tyres, the choice of associated technology, the general condition of your tractor are all factors which allow you to carry out your daily tasks in the best possible safety conditions.
Safety is vital today for tractor drivers.
The risk of overturning due to loss of grip or transport of heavy loads is high. The explosion of a tyre also seems to be common.
To counter this problem, multiple technologies are at your disposal to guarantee the best safety possible and to protect your health.
Check that your tyres are adapted to your activity
VF (Very High Flexion) tyres offer great flexibility of the sidewalls which in turn leads to a reduction in vibrations and shocks for the driver.
At the same time, they bring a considerable increase in the soil footprint without affecting the tyre’s lifespan.
Lastly, thanks to this technology, the tractor can bear an additional load of up to 40%.
The VT-TRACTOR brings a series of technological advances with its new “Involute” lug design. Representing the interface between ground and tyre, these lugs allow perfect adaptation to the multiple conditions in which the tractor is used…. Slip and horizontal soil compaction are reduced and grip improved. Motricity and comfort for work in the fields and safety, braking excellence and precision driving on the road are also features provided by this technology.
