Prague, Czech Republic - Farm equipment manufacturer CLAAS awarded tyre maker Mitas with the CLAAS Supplier of the Year Award 2011 for Innovation for Mitas' CHO tyre.
Mounted on CLAAS combine harvesters, the CHO tyre carries heavy loads, achieving low soil compaction while keeping the vehicles' overall width within 3.50 metres. Such narrow combines do not need escorting during road transport. â€œAnd the farmer saves money,â€ Steinhardt said. â€œThe secret of CHO is in the third dimension as it increases the length of its footprint.â€
