For your security, your comfort, the protection of your soil and your budget, the choice of tyres for your combine harvester is hugely important to enable you to work in the best conditions.
Your tyres are key elements of your security, your profitability and your productivity
The tyres you choose for your combine harvester will play an important role in avoiding the risk of overturning and in carrying heavy loads. The latest generation of hi-technology tyres will provide you with the best security.
Firstly, the reinforced structures of the IF, VF and CFO technology tyres can carry from 20 to 50% more load than a standard tyre. Moreover, the flexibility of the IF and VF technologies increase the tyre’s tread contact length and optimise the stability of your machinery.
Your comfort and the protection of your soil are guaranteed when the tyre tread contact length is greater. The high flexibility of IF and VF tyres increases this footprint and reduces soil compaction. Your wellbeing and your soil are protected.
These technologies also save you money. Their additional load capacity reduces the number of trips required and reduces your fuel consumption. And by reducing soil compaction, they promote root development and increase your yield.
