Trelleborg, Sweden – Trelleborg Wheel Systems will present its “giant” IF900/65R46 TM1000 High Power tire at the Agritechnica exhibition, Hannover, Germany, from 10-16 November.
The TM1000 High Power tread design is claimed to maximise tread width and ensure the widest footprint on the market, with a view to providing an optimal pressure distribution to boost crop yield, while preserving soil from compaction and erosion.
Lorenzo Ciferri, marketing director for agricultural and forestry tires with Trelleborg Wheel Systems, said: “Trelleborg has conducted many joint product development initiatives with leading tractor manufacturers. Because of this, we can claim many ‘firsts’. In the 1960s and 1970s, Trelleborg was the first to introduce the low-pressure concept for agricultural tires. In the last decade, Trelleborg launched the first 710/75R42 2.15m tire in 2005, the first 900/60R42 in 2007 as well as the first IF750/75R46 2.3m in 2011.”
Trelleborg claims to be the only tire producer to offer two alternatives in the 2.3m size in the 46in segment, the IF750/75R46 and the new IF900/65R46, both available as complete wheels with THK Trelleborg rims.
