Trelleborg will feature its ProgressiveTraction tire at booth N9 at the 2014 World Ag Expo.

Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. announced it will present its portfolio of high-quality tires at the 2014 World Ag Expo, to be held in Tulare, Calif., Feb. 11-13, in booth N9.

The company says it will demonstrate to farming professionals its best-in-class solutions that decrease the use of natural resources and overall environmental footprint, while maximizing efficiency and productivity of their operations.

The company says new products will include Trelleborg’s recently launched ProgressiveTraction tire, an innovative concept of agricultural tires specifically designed to improve farming efficiency thanks to a double lug design. Operating on the soil at different times, the double lug progressively releases higher traction where and when required.

Trelleborg’s popular 480/80R50 TM600, 900/60R42 TM900 High Power, IF710/75R42 TM1000 High Power, 500/70R24 TH400 from its new agro-industrial range, together with forestry and lawn & garden products, will also be featured at the event.

Trelleborg will also present its latest apps for farming professionals, including the Trelleborg Load Calculator designed to calculate load per axle according to a tractor’s configuration, recommending the optimum pressure for the selected application. It is possible to download for free the Trelleborg Apps from the App Store or Google Play or go on:
