Agricultural and Industrial Tyres

Commercial Tyre Business is debuting the latest Industrial Tyre Feature with Part 1, where we unveil Tyrewatch’s tyre data technology and its benefits for the quarry operation industry. Stay tuned for an in-depth interview with TyreWatch's Peter Roffey, Sales & Field Technical Manager as part of this series in Part 4.

The Mitas HC (High Capacity) radial tyre range has expanded its collection with the HC 3000 R tyre. At 1000/65R32 CFO, the new tyre features very high flexion and rounded shoulder sections, which is why the tyre is part of the ‘R’ range.

 

Sailun recently delivered 18.00R33, 35/65R33 radial tyres to Taiwan Cement Corporation's (TCC) mines in Mainland China.

Railway use sets special demands for a backhoe loader tyre. Half of the tyre is on metal, which can cause uneven wear and shorten the tyre life. Nokian Tyres has been perfecting a special tyre for railway use for several years, and now the unique Nokian Ground King Semi-Slick tyre variant solves many problems that were previously typical when using a backhoe loader on railroads. 

Quellendorfer Landwirte GbR is a mixed agricultural farm that requires versatile equipment to go about its operations. The right tyre is a crucial factor to the company’s success, which is why Doctor Sebastian Ulrich has opted for Bridgestone Tyres over the past five years.

 

For the Scaglia family and their 400-hectare farm, based in Rivoli, Northern Italy, quality harvesting and cattle farming requires specialist tyres, which BKT has provided for Scaglia Farm.

Michelin has launched an additional five sizes for its AgriBib Row Crop IF, which is a specialist tyre for self-propelled and trailed sprayers, as well as for row tractors from 70 to 190 hp.

The latest figures highlighting tractor registrations in Spain have been released by the Ministerio de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación (Ministery for Agriculture, Fishing and Food) and paint a promising picture for agricultural tyre manufacturers and service providers.

Michelin is currently introducing two new sizes of MICHELIN CrossGrip multi-purpose all-season tyres for backhoe loaders, skid steer loaders, telehandlers and small tractors. 

The latest figures from the Agricultural Engineers’ Association for May make for pleasant reading for the UK market as year-on-year figures show a healthy increase on 2020’s figures.
