Part 7 of the Commercial Tyre Business Agricultural Feature sheds a light on Alliance’s new agricultural tyre, the Alliance 768 Value Plus. This design offers a new pattern for pivot irrigation systems, and has been developed for hot regions, wet crops and muddy soils.
Alliance Announces Newest Agricultural Tyre
As part of the manufactures portfolio of value segment tyres, Alliance (a part of Yokohama Off-Highway Tires) introduces a new tyre for pivot irrigation systems: Alliance 768 Value Plus. It is a completely new tyre pattern which has been designed to provide effective grip and traction for constant loads being moved on fixed circular paths under moist or even muddy conditions. Wide spacing of lugs ensures that the excellent self-cleaning characteristics are maintained at all times whilst rounded shoulders provide constant propulsion and protect the crop against damage at the same time. The strong nylon carcass allows for a prolonged and reliable service live.
Well known in hot and arid regions, pivot irrigation systems have to function reliably under most adverse conditions, i.e. high temperatures and highly intensive sun radiation. At the same time, soil and irrigated crops tend to make for a moist or even muddy working environment. That is why the Alliance 768 Value Plus features a special ozone compound which eliminates premature aging and cracking of the tread. As climate change continues, irrigation systems including pivot irrigation will also increasingly be needed in semi-arid regions, for example. The Alliance 768 Value Plus tyre comes in three sizes: 11.2-24, 14.9-24 and 11.2-38.
