In the row crop season farmers face many challenges; stress on the soil, more time running on the road, and the increasingly frequent need to work in less-than-ideal weather conditions. ATG asked its’ end customers what would make their row crop work even more efficient, faster and more comfortable. The key points were: better quality of drive, less soil compaction and smoother ride. ATG’s answer to those needs is Alliance 363 with very high flexion (VF) technology which enables working with higher tyre deflection, providing up to 40% higher load carrying capacity for the same inflation pressure as regular tyres.

Peter Baur, President of Alliance Tire Group in Europe said: “At ATG we work to deliver better value and quality products that make for a smarter choice for our customers. The row crop and planting season is extremely demanding and productivity, as well as comfort during long hours of work, are key. We have designed 363 VF as a response to these seasonal challenges, but what’s the most important, with our end customers’ needs in mind. We wanted to engineer a product that supports drivers of heavy loaded crop machines. With more efficiency, lower costs and greater durability of the tyre, farmers can be sure their planting and spraying activities are successful, season by season.”

 

The tyres are engineered to deliver the same quality of row crop drive in the field, as on the road, and to maintain the comfort of driving on floater tyres but with narrow patterns, running in between the rows making it an optimal solution for heavy and fast running row crop sprayers and tractors.

 

The tyre for more efficient row crop

The innovative Alliance 363 VF lug design, divided into separate blocks, ensures excellent grip and drive stability, with consistently high traction on hard and soft surfaces and at fast speeds (up to 65kph). The tyre has excellent self-cleaning even in the heaviest clay conditions, enabling the crop to be handled quicker. According to our customers Alliance 363VF offers an “impressive performance on the road and smooth, easy to control ride in the field” *.

 

Next to the (VF) technology that delivers increased soil protection guarantee, the Alliance 363 VF design is also equipped with high rubber levels to deliver longer tyre life, and steel belted carcass structure that ensures uniform ground pressure distribution, and extended tread life.

 

The sinking is considerably lower; therefore, the tyre doesn’t have to climb up on the ground but it rolls really smoothly. These features reduce fuel costs significantly, making Alliance 363 VF the smart choice for any farm while the fuel consumption goes to minimal. “The reduction in fuel consuming is tangible” concludes Menno Timmer, Dutch entrepreneur in flower industry and user of Alliance 363 VF.

 

Alliance A363 have always been at the forefront in row crop tyre technology, and is now available in six popular sizes (VF 270/95R48, VF 230/95R48, VF 270/95R54, VF 380/90R46) at certified Alliance dealers across Europe. The tyre is most suitable for all sprayers tractors, agricultural tractors, towed and self-propelled sprayers, and row crop tractors.
