Titan is bringing an equipment rodeo to the 2019 Farm Progress Show. The event will feature LSW tires on various types of farm equipment.

Titan International Inc. is hosting the first-ever LSW Equipment Rodeo featuring the company’s low sidewall technology at the 2019 Farm Progress Show Aug. 27-29 in Decatur, Ill.

Three live field demonstrations will be held in Titan’s ride-n-drive area at 1:30 daily during the show. Show goers that attend one of the LSW Equipment Rodeos will be entered to win an LSW Ultimate Upgrade — a Low Sidewall Technology (LSW) tire setup for the equipment of their choice.

“Farm Progress Show is about showcasing the latest in agriculture, and that’s why we wanted to introduce an equipment rodeo to the show,” says Scott Sloan, ag product manager for Titan. “We want to demonstrate that we’re more than just the big LSW flotation tires. This showcase will give attendees a preview of how LSW is a solution for any farm equipment.”

The LSW Equipment Rodeo will feature LSW tires for 4WD flotation setups, MFWD row crop configurations, grain carts, sprayers and combines with commentary from Sloan and ag tech expert Chad Colby of Colby Ag Tech. Titan will also have live side-by-side demonstrations to compare the benefits of LSW Super Singles versus track machines and conventional dual tire setups.

In addition to the LSW Equipment Rodeo, show attendees can test drive machines equipped with the latest tire technologies at Titan’s Ride ‘N’ Drive, including a tractor setup with the world’s largest farm tires: the Goodyear LSW1400/30R46. Test drives will be available all day each day of the show outside of the LSW Equipment Rodeo times.

Annual tire auction benefitting FFA

Titan will host its annual tire auction benefiting FFA (Future Farmers of America) on Wed., Aug. 28, at 2 p.m. in booth 933. Titan says the auctions have benefitted thousands of FFA students across the U.S. since 1996. Funds are used to support agricultural education programs. In 2018, Titan raised more than $91,000 for regional FFA chapters, and 100% of auction proceeds support regional FFA chapters. The auctions allow show attendees to purchase Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires at highly discounted prices. The top auction bidder will receive an additional $1,000 rebate redeemable for Titan and Goodyear Farm Tire purchases.

“We recognize the direct benefits that organizations like FFA have on students in both rural and suburban communities. We’re proud to support their initiatives any way we can,” says Sloan. “The annual tire auctions are our way of ensuring all students have access to develop their leadership skills to their fullest potential.”

Additional show giveaways

Because Titan is this year’s show wristband sponsor, all Farm Progress Show attendees can show their wristband in the Titan booth to receive a $100 rebate. Attendees can also enter for the chance to win a $5,000 in-booth tire rebate giveaway. Plus, Titan will give away a set of the new Goodyear R14 crossover tires for compact tractors. Attendees simply need to stop by the booth to learn more.
