Trelleborg and MITAS at AGROMEK 22
Trelleborg Wheel Systems joins AGROMEK with its sustainable tyre solutions for efficient farming
Trelleborg Attends AGROMEK 2022
Trelleborg Wheel Systems will be exhibiting at AGROMEK 2022, Northern Europe’s largest agricultural fair, from November 29 to December 2, 2022. In booth G5740, tyre solutions and products from Trelleborg and Mitas brands will be on show as part of the multi-brand product offering of Trelleborg Wheel Systems.
On display for the first time at AGROMEK is the new Trelleborg HF1000 implement tyre, recently launched at SIMA Paris. Designed for premium forage wagons and slurry tankers, Trelleborg HF1000 is the best choice to improve machine efficiency and respect the environment simultaneously.
The VF and steel belted construction of HF1000 ensure long durability and superior performance both in the field and on the road. In the field, it stands out with its excellent flotation and self-cleaning features. On the road, it delivers a comfortable ride and easy handling while providing increased stability and overall drivability. Even under maximum stress, with a fully-loaded vehicle, the HF1000 innovative tread pattern provides up to a 12.5% wider footprint compared to a premium competitor, ensuring efficient load distribution and maximum respect for the soil. In wet off-road conditions, the new Trelleborg HF1000 tread design includes an outstanding self-cleaning feature, essential to keep the tyre and machine working correctly even under challenging conditions. Compared with a premium competitor, the new HF1000 tread results in up to 40% cleaner with improved drivability and overall tyre performance.
On display in booth G5740 is also the Trelleborg TM1000 ProgressiveTraction® tyre. Engineered according to VF standards and equipped with the multi-award-winning ProgressiveTraction® technology, this innovative tyre solution provides superior flotation, less stress on the soil and unbeatable traction. It guarantees low fuel consumption and emissions, premium handling and comfort while extending tyre life on the road.
In its dedicated area at booth G5740, Mitas is showcasing agricultural tyres featuring modern construction and maximum soil protection at AGROMEK, including its SFT (Super Flexion Tyre). The Mitas SFT tyre delivers maximum traction and outstanding productivity and is explicitly developed for high-horsepower tractors and harvesters. The flexible and ultra-strong sidewalls allow low inflation pressures for high load-carrying capacities. The extremely large volume of air ensures gentle ground handling when working with heavy loads.
Moreover, visitors will also find the AGRITERRA 02, a fast and high-performance agricultural tyre with a wide range of uses, including on trailers, loading and transport vehicles, slurry tankers, spreaders, and other aggregation equipment. Thanks to its rounded thread shoulder and extended footprint, this tyre is very gentle on grassland and features low noise emissions, low rolling resistance, and fuel consumption.
