Two Continental Ag Tires Earn Fitments with Deere
For the first time, the John Deere product lines 6M and 6R are available with the Continental TractorMaster and VF TractorMaster ag tires.
Continental has been supplying John Deere with tires since 2019.
"Now, customers can specify all John Deere 6M and 6R series models with all Continental tires approved," say Continental officials.
Both the TractorMaster and VF TractorMaster "are characterized by their particular robustness, durability and high mileage. The radial tires have a 5% higher lug surface area than comparable agricultural tires due to the special design and application of the d.fine lug technology developed by Continental. This ensures longer mileage.
"The tire’s material and n.flex technology ensures its particularly high stability of shape and impact. The carcass material made of stretchable nylon is flexible enough to withstand an impact - without losing its original shape.
"Furthermore, the flexible material allows the tire to adapt particularly well to uneven ground. Thanks to this flexibility, the tire quickly returns to its original shape."
"With the TractorMaster, John Deere is expanding its tire portfolio with a test winner in the agricultural tire segment, which stands for efficiency and cost-effectiveness," says Jens Mund, key account manager for agricultural tire original equipment at Continental Commercial Specialty Tires.
Both products are made at Continental's plant in Portugal.
