Trelleborg says the new VF1050/50R32 tire for spreader applications limits soil compaction.

Trelleborg Wheel Systems will unveil a new tire size in its TM3000 range for spreader applications at agricultural trade shows in the U.S. and France in February.

The VF1050/50R32 will be displayed at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky, Feb. 15 – 18, and at the Paris International Agri-Business Show (SIMA) Feb. 26 – March 2.

The company says the VF1050/50R32 provides increased productivity and lowers overall operating costs. The tire incorporates Trelleborg BlueTire technology to help protect the environment.

The VF1050/50R32 offers the benefits of the VF construction and a D rated load index (65 Km/h; 40 mph). Compared to standard options in the market, the VF construction allows the machine to carry up to 40% more load at the same pressure or to inflate the tire with up to 40% less pressure while carrying the same load. This means that the tire can carry up to 13,200 kg (29,100 lbs) at 3.6 bar (or 52 psi).  

Lorenzo Ciferri, Trellebrog marketing director, says, “The new generation of spreader machines shows an increasing need for carrying higher load while constantly reducing the contact pressure on the field to limit soil compaction during spreading operations.”

The new VF1050/50R32 tire also features Trelleborg's ProgressiveTraction technology. The company says the technology increases traction, helps protect the tire from stubble damage, and improves road wear resistance and comfort. In addition, the rounded shoulder of the tread, makes the VF1050/50R32 very respectful on soil and grassland, and improves machine handling.

For more information on the new TM3000 VF1050/50R32 tire, visit booth 8949 at the National Farm Machinery Show or stand C060, Hall 7 at SIMA 2017.
