ATG Ag Tire Wins Silver Medal at Trade Fair

Posted on November 8, 2019

Yokohama Rubber Co. Ltd. reports the Alliance Tire Group (ATG), its off-highway tire manufacturing and sales subsidiary, won an Agritechnica Innovation Award Silver Medal for its Alliance 398 MPT agricultural tire.

The Agritechnica Innovation Award has been presented to products recognized for superior innovations during pre-screening of products to be exhibited at Agritechnica 2019, the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery to be held this November 10-16 in Hanover, Germany.

This year, one innovation was awarded a gold medal and 39 innovations received a silver medal. The silver medal-winning Alliance 398 MPT tire is compatible for use with a central tire inflation system that automatically adjusts tire pressure to the level suitable for driving in the field or on a paved road.

In addition, the tires’ all-steel radial flotation construction enables the Alliance 398 MPT to deliver optimum performance on and off the road, with traction, high load capacity, and soil protection when used on the farm and stable handling and a quiet and comfortable ride at high speeds when used on paved roads.

The agricultural tire is capable of delivering speeds up to 100 km/hr on paved roads. This duality enables farmers to load their crops directly in the field and transport them without the need to transfer to another vehicle, eliminating the need for grain carts and other equipment and contributing to greater work efficiency, the company says.

In addition to the Alliance 398 MPT, ATG’s exhibit at Agritechnica 2019 will include several other core products, such as an upgraded Alliance VF*4 series and the Alliance 579 for use on lawn and turf.

The Agritechnica trade fair has been held every other year since 1985. Agritechnica 2017 was attended by 458,000 visitors, who were able to see products exhibited by 2,802 companies and organizations from 52 countries.

Yokohama Rubber’s medium-term management plan Grand Design 2020 (GD2020) includes a commercial tire strategy that targets further expansion of its off-highway tire business in Japan and other markets by “positioning commercial tires as a pillar of growth in our second century and off-highway tires as a growth driver,” says the company.
