New Michelin TrailXBib Ag Tire Features Ultraflex Tech
The new Michelin TrailXBib targets slurry wagons, spreaders and trailers and is designed to deliver "outstanding endurance, prolonged tire life and low soil compaction," according to Michelin officials.
The tire "is air systems-ready and designed with Michelin VF Ultraflex Technology to help reduce soil compaction and optimize yields. The tire has a low pressure impact in fields and is puncture and aggression resistant."
It features a new, steel-belted casing for enhanced robustness and soil protection; a tread pattern that delivers a high level of self-cleaning; a central rib design to help ensure regular wear; and more.
The TrailXBib is available in sizes 560/60R22.5 and 650/55R26.5. More sizes are on the way, according to Michelin officials.
"The Michelin TrailXBib allows the farmer to easily adjust trailed equipment tire pressure with remote inflation systems in real-time and according to the type of soil load distribution," says David Graden, agriculture operational marketing manager, Michelin North America. "This solution reduces soil compaction and protects the soil for future harvests for increased agricultural yields."
