New: Bridgestone VT-Tractor tyres
Are you a tractor dealer or sprayer manufacturer? A farmer or contractor? Bridgestone tyres will increase the performance of your tractor, sprayer or implement. The tyres can carry the weight at lower pressures, this gives many benefits including; increasing crop yield, money savings on fuel, better traction, and increased ride comfort.
Watch the video, or read on below to find out how you could Bridgestone tyres could help you increase the performance of your machines.
Bridgestone make a range of high-quality VF (Very High Flexion) tyres in standard ag tyre sizes and profiles. By offering a VF tyre in the 65 profile (i.e. 650/65R38) Bridgestone tyres give many benefits over similar sizes tyres – this is because other manufacturers don’t make IF or VF tyres with a 65 profile.
How will Bridgestone tyres help you?
Read on to find out what fitting Bridgestone tyres could do for you.
Increase your crop yields
The Bridgestone agricultural tyres have a larger footprint – this means that tyres reduce soil compaction resulting in higher yields.
According to Bridgestone’s testing, the VT-Tractor tyres have up to 26% larger lug contact area than other key makes in the market. Bridgestone has developed a new bead profile which allows the sidewall to flex at lower pressure – reducing soil compaction.
Increase productivity and efficiency
In the video above, Bridgestone do tests which show that by fitting VT-Tractor tyres you can cover an extra 0.9 hectares in your day – this is due to the extra traction allowing machines to work faster.
The new design of lug results in lower soil disturbance, minimalised slip and offers better traction.
Save money with lower operating costs
The higher traction given by the Bridgestone tyre results in fuel savings of up to 36 litres per 50 hectares.
As a VF tyre, the Bridgestone VT-Tractor can carry up to 40% heavier loads compared to a standard tyre. The advantage is you can save money (fuel, tyre wear and machine maintenance) by carrying the same load with fewer transport cycles on the road.
With the Bridgestone VT-Tractor, there is no need to stop and change tyre pressure when moving from the field to the road and back.
As Paul Jannaway, one of Bridgestone’s first users, said:
'I’m never worrying about tyre pressure and the time it takes to adjust them, which also makes my life easier. With the tyre’s durability, flexibility and comfort, I can honestly say that I will never be looking anywhere else but Bridgestone from now on.’
These tyre have a very flexible sidewall and a longer tread bar. The sidewall design will absorbs the undulations in road surface and the field to give a smoother and more stable ride. The New tread pattern design has longer lugs which offers a smoother drive.
