Specialists for “big jobs”!
The ability to carry large payloads quickly and conserving soil are the two main prerequisites for agricultural tires. As pioneer and leader in agri-transport flotation radial tires, ATG’s Alliance brand has therefore a large portfolio of tires for agricultural transport and other uses. One of the innovative products, the 380 VF Flotation Radial pattern in size 650/55R26.5, can either carry up to 40% more load compared to its standard flotation variant with the same air pressure or the same load with 30% lower inflation pressure – which in turn allows for markedly better soil protection. The 380VF offers 25% larger footprint when compared to its conventional radial variant, thus causing significantly lower soil compaction. This tire is a true specialist for agricultural transport vehicles, offering exceptional flotation, low ground pressure, and minimum soil disturbance.
With the performance of harvesting equipment increasing year after year, getting lots of harvested crops quickly transported from field to barn, cooperative or customer becomes ever more important. As yet another Agritechnica highlight, the popular design Alliance 390 will now be available in the size 24R20.5 MPT. The 390 MPT is a heavy duty all steel radial flotation tire for high speed trailers. The block type tread design in combination with wide tread and large inner volume provide exceptional flotation capabilities and less soil compaction. These tires are ideal for all kinds of Off Highway agricultural transport. In addition, evenly spaced and well designed tread design has outstanding self-cleaning properties.
In addition to these examples, ATG will launch a firework of innovations at this year’s Agritechnica. “We are investing tremendous research and development resources in our ability to introduce the very best and latest products in Off Highway Tire technology. The launch of large volume IF and VF tires in the recent past is just one example that gives testimony of our efforts. We realise that agricultural machines such sprayers, tractors, combine harvesters, self-propelled mowers and tankers are evolving rapidly for increased overall productivity. As this segment will see further significant growth in coming years, ATG is geared to provide efficient high-quality solutions with the right mix of tires”, says Peter Baur, President – Alliance Tire Europe B.V.
