Trelleborg debuts wheel solution at ag show
Trelleborg Wheel Systems took another step in its journey toward sustainable farming at the Paris International Agri-Business Show (SIMA) 2013 by extending its collaboration with tractor manufacturer New Holland.
The leading international agri-business show, which took take place in Paris, France, Feb. 24-28, 2013, saw the New Holland T9 4WD tractor showcased with the Trelleborg giant 2.3 meters complete wheel IF 750/75R46 TM1000 High Power for the first time. Designed according to Blue Tire technology, to meet the requirements of the latest generation of ultra-high powered tractors, TM1000 High Power is fitted on the Trelleborg THK wheel capable of boosting tractor efficiency and preventing any slippage between tire and rim.
The New Holland T9 features the advanced SCR ECOBlue technology, which provides high power and productivity, while lowering environmental impact. At the same time, the extra-wide footprint area of TM1000 High Power grants great traction and fuel efficiency, optimizing working time and reducing emissions, Trelleborg notes. In addition, optimum flotation capability significantly reduces the compaction of the soil and the stress on the crops, driving higher farming yields.
“Our strategic partnership with New Holland has been developed to help farming professionals achieve the perfect combination between complete wheel solutions and cutting edge tractor technology. Together, we are committed to helping farming professionals upgrade their traditional operations to ensure a sustainable future for farming,” says Paolo Pompei, business unit president, agricultural and forestry tires, Trelleborg Wheel Systems.
