I’m sure you’d agree that everyone wants to save money. Wouldn’t it be nice to have an easy way to save on expenses such as fuel costs?
But is it achievable?
It turns out, according to Trelleborg, that the Progressive Traction tyres use 10% less fuel and last 500 more hours than the market average.
Read on to find out exactly how you can do that, and much more:
The Trelleborg Progressive Traction Tyre: What is it?
Developed to provide extra traction performance and fuel efficiency for tractors between 100 and 240hp. With the signature Double Edge Lug, the TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ is the answer to being more efficient: helping you to produce more, with less.
The Double Edge Lug: 3 Key Features
The unbeatable performance of the Trelleborg ProgressiveTraction™ is testament to its innovative double edge lug.
While its two points of anchorage boost grip, the stronger base of the lug significantly reduces vibrations, wear and fuel consumption. In addition, the double edge lug also enhances the inter-lug terraces of the TM tyres, maximising the self-cleaning capability of the tyre.
Redefining Traction Performance
The higher grip of TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ is driven by the dual anchor of the lug. The new design greatly reduces the tyre slippage ensuring maximum traction. The ProgressiveTraction™ technology boosts traction capability up to 18% higher than the market average.
Extra Wide Footprint: Maximum Flotation
The additional lug base surface reduces sinking of the tyre in the soil. In addition, the empowered sidewall flexibility leads to the widest footprint in the market, reducing soil compaction.
Great Cost Savings in the Field
During high torque operation, the new TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ line performs better than premium brand competitors and significantly better than the average of the market. The reduced working time per hectare results in lower emissions and premium cost efficiency.
The economic benefits achieved by the reduction of operating time result in significant overall savings, including costs such as fuel, maintenance and manpower.
Premium Comfort and Handling on the Road
Compared to the market average, the TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ provides you with better handling and safety performances. The new lug design avoids vibrations and assures premium comfort, essential for your long and demanding farming operations.
Extra Mileage and Low Fuel Consumption
The reduced “brush” effect of the lug prevents the energy dissipation, positively influencing the rolling resistance. With this reduction of wasted energy, the fuel consumption is reduced and the lifetime of the tyre increases as much as 500 hours (compared to the market average). The outcome is a reduced total cost of ownership of the tyre.
