Trelleborg has gone a step further to meet the growing demands of farmers looking to increase reliability and productivity in their ground spreading operations, thanks to the latest launch of its newest steel-belted tyre, the MPT100.
MPT100 Rolled Out by Trelleborg
Conceived for municipality and transport applications, the radial tyre is specifically for use on multi-purpose vehicles and fertilizer trucks used in ground spreading.
Alessio Bucci, Product Marketing Senior Manager at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “Trelleborg turned to the latest fleet machinery for inspiration in creating the MPT100 tyre, which was designed for both field and road surfaces. The MPT100 tyre ensures excellent stability and greater wear resistance, while its flat tread crown reduces soil compaction. The tyre goes even further by providing for optimal self-cleaning as well, due to its carefully crafted inter-lug terraces that enable mud ejection and prevent the tread from clogging even in intensely muddy conditions; this way farmers can rely on a tyre that’s always working at top efficiency.”
Ground spreading demands higher horsepower and high loads and the MPT100 has been proven to handle the intense demands of the toughest operating conditions. Minimising vibration and maximising roadability, while allowing for some of the highest load ratings on the market, the tyres support an additional 1,100 kg tyre rating even when running at speeds of 90 kilometres per hour.
The Trelleborg MPT100 is available in three sizes: 405/70R20, 425/75R20 and 445/65R22.5.
