As local tyre experts, the Tyrepower team understands just how important it is to fit the right tyres and can provide experienced advice to help you make the right decisions.
What to Look for In Agricultural Tyres
Your agricultural machinery needs to be fitted with the harvest or tractor tyres most suitable for its application, whether that’s harvesting, ploughing, logging or transportation, and the environment in which it operates. Tyres are the most crucial traction point for a vehicle as it navigates terrain, but it’s also essential to understand the effect that tyres have on the surface of the terrain and take that into account.
For example, in terrains like orchards with underlying root systems, tyres with a wide surface area (tyre width) which evenly disperse the weight of the vehicle are required to avoid excessive soil compaction which can negatively affect production. Another important consideration relating to harvest vehicle tyres is ensuring the tyre spacing can be set up to match the spacing of crop rows. When buying new agricultural tyres for your tractor or harvest machinery, considerations to take into account include:
Tread type (tread pattern, depth, etc).
Tyre strength and durability (impact and puncture resistance, etc.)
Additional applications the machinery is used for.
The terrain, weather conditions and local environment.
