Agricultural and Industrial Tyres

Bridgestone’s VX-Tractor patterned tyres are now approved for selected New Holland T6 and T7 Series tractors within the UK and Ireland.

In the latest FederUnacoma figures, tractor and agricultural machinery sales between January-March were stable, although they failed to match the record levels seen in the same period for 2021.

After a bumpy start to the year, the latest figures show a market returning to form as sales of both tractor and agricultural machinery exceed March 2021 levels in figures released by the Ministerio de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación (the Ministry for Agriculture, Fishing and Food).

Magna Tyres' 445/95R25 MA03 is proving to be a versatile tyre for a lifting equipment rental company undertaking various projects in Qatar. Magna Tyres adds that the tyres are offering the company cost-saving operations.

March is traditionally a strong month for tractor sales in the UK. According to the latest figures released by the AEA, there were 1,976 tractor units registered in March 2022, which is 5.2% below 2021 levels when 2,085 sales were recorded. As this is the third consecutive drop in statistics, 2022 sales levels so far remain just behind the 2021 benchmark.

Goodyear has launched Powerload to support drive for productivity, durability and cost-effective operations of compact wheel loader and small grader machines.

The Goodyear plant in Fulda announces the successful installation of 1,316 monocrystalline solar modules with an output of around 500 kWp.

Expanding on the MS915 series for modern telehandlers and graders, MAXAM Tire’s new 370/75-28 & 400/75-28 sizes maintain high-traction and a long-lasting solution for challenging construction applications.

As we approach the final stages of our Agricultural Feature for 2022, we managed to speak to another leading manufacturer in the agricultural tyre space in Nokian Heavy Tyres. Just under a year ago, we interviewed three key members of the Nokian Heavy Tyres’s Team as part of our Agricultural Feature. These same three members: Jarkko Heinamaki (Head of Sales), Tero Saari (Agricultural Tyres Product Manager) and Pierre Choubert (Business Manager, West Europe) were back again as Commercial Tyre Business quizzed the three on the Finnish manufacturer’s ongoing performance in the agricultural sector.

Fitting the right tyres for a sprayer can help operators improve application accuracy, and reduce fuel consumption and soil compaction, Rebecca Sheddon of Continental explains.
