The challenge of getting stuck when plowing, can be a problem, as you will need another tractor to pull you out from there. Often this scenario can be avoided by using flotation tires that float on top of the surface instead of sinking into the top layer. In addition the compaction that can happen when you don’t use flotation tires can reduce your yield due to soil compaction. Selecting the right tires can have a big impact on your output and your costs, as you will need to make sure that your equipment are running with minimum downtime and problems.
The flotation tires are wider and are often used as agriculture tires. They can distribute the pressure to a larger area, so that the heavy equipment doesn’t destroy the top layer of the soil. The tread is designed to both give you traction and stability combined with a comfortable driving experience. Tractors often need to be good for driving both on and off field, where the off field includes a lot of road driving. Depending on your tractor use and how your fields are placed and if you do additional contracting you need to select tires that are optimized for your use case. If you make the wrong selection you will wear out your tires too quickly.
You also need to select the right agricultural trailer tires. You will most likely benefit of using flotation tires on your trailers as well, to ensure that you have minimum soil compaction. You will need to take any steps to ensure that you have the highest yield possible for your operation. That includes taking every step to minimize the soil compaction and other areas that might limit your yield. You can find the best tires in the technical tire manual, where you can also find the proper tire pressure for the tires.
High quality tires will have low rolling resistance, ensuring that you minimize your fuel costs as well as lower CO2 emissions. Environmental friendly agricultural business is becoming increasingly more important. Low tire wear is also of essence, so that you don’t have to invest in new tires more often than necessary. Investing in tires that have low impact on your soil and has low degree of problems so that you can maximize the up time, will add profits to your operations.
