Dutch tyre manufacturer Apollo Vredestein will introduce nine new sizes to its Vredestein Traxion85 tyre range at the upcoming EIMA trade show in Bologna, Italy. The international agricultural and gardening machinery exhibition runs from 9 to 13 November and is viewed by the tyre maker as the “ideal platform” to showcase its ongoing process of innovation to the farming community.
With its characteristic curved lugs that follow the Traxion family concept, the Traxion85 is designed to combine traction and comfort with a long life. All sizes are A8/B marked and thus approved for use at speeds of up to 31 mph or 50 km/h. The Traxion85 range will be extended to incorporate seven sizes ranging from 30 to 50 inches and two standard sizes. Apollo Vredestein says this line-up will complete the range and satisfy the growing demand for Vredestein tyres in this popular all-round segment.
The new rear sizes 480/80 R 42, 480/80 R 46, 520/85 R 46 and 480/80 R 50 are very popular fitments in North America and Australia as both row crop and all-round tractor tyres. These sizes are often fitted as twins or even triples with their corresponding front sizes on high horsepower tractors. The new sizes also satisfy the growing demand in Europe for wider tyres on large sprayers in controlled traffic farming. They are preferred to narrow row crop tyres thanks to their large footprint, which is created by more width and a larger diameter.
The addition of these sizes means that Vredestein will offer a complete portfolio of 80/85 series tyres for global use.
