YOHT Professional Solutions for Contractors at DeLuTa 2022
That is why considerations with regard to new tyres currently tend to focus on snow and ice mobility. As winter is followed by spring, however, tyres also need handle quite different operation conditions. Against this background, Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT) used this year’s DeLuTa as specialist event for agricultural contractors and related industries to present selected treads of its broad range of professional tyres. Particular attention is paid to high-performance winter solutions, to all season solutions as well as tyres for professional on-road transportation that are suitable for all kinds of surfaces and conditions. In addition to delivering a speech on these topics, YOHT held “professional tyre talks” and expert advice on the fairground in Bremen.
“With more than 4000 SKUs of the renowned Yokohama, Alliance, Galaxy and Primex brands, our portfolio offers the largest selection of professional tyres in the market. This portfolio is available in 120 countries on 6 continents and is backed by 7 factories and R&D facilities in Israel, Japan, India, and the US. Key quality features and top performance ensure that YOHT tyres offer optimum solutions for professional users,” says Angelo Noronha, President Europe at Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT).
Built to perform in all weather conditions, the Alliance 551 Multiuse is one of the treads addressed at DeLuTa. It was developed and designed for optimum snow mobility, offering massive grip and snow control, thus ensuring safety and high driving comfort in all kinds of winter operations.
The Alliance 550 Multiuse is one of the brand’s many multi-talents. It offers reliable performance and traction 365 days a year – as all-season tyre and on any surface. No matter whether there is snow or ice, loose sand or gravel, tar, or concrete: The Alliance 550 Multiuse delivers.
As specialist for hard surfaces, the Alliance 585 was made for both bare soil and hard surfaces. With particular focus on versatile machines such as telehandlers, backhoe and compact loaders, the wear-resistant tyre offers high traction, effective self-cleaning as well as puncture, cut and chip-resistance.
The Alliance 590 is a highly innovative flotation radial tyre for agriculture and a broad range of on/off road applications. In addition to high traction and low soil compaction in the field, this tyre offers a highly convincing performance in transportation of construction material. High load carrying capacity, the ability to work on a variety of surfaces and top durability are some of the tyre’s impressive features.
As true game changer in agricultural transportation, the Alliance 398 MPT is the world’s first agricultural tyre to deliver perfect traction in the field and a high speed of up to 100 kph on the road. By directly going into the field and picking up produce from the harvesters, this tyre reduces labour, the need for additional tractors and trailers and thus truly boosts workflow efficiency. Thanks to its outstanding performance in terms of speed, load carrying capacity and soil protection, the Alliance 398 MPT was awarded a silver medal in the Agritechnica Innovation Award programme 2019.
