Cereals Show first outing for Goodyear Optitrac H+
Earlier in the year Goodyear introduced its Optitrac H+ harvester tyre into the UK; those wishing to see this new product for themselves can do so at the Cereals show in Lincolnshire, where it will be displayed for the first time on June 15 and 16. The Optitrac H+ is currently available in three sizes in the UK (IF 800/75R32 CFO, IF 800/70R32 CFO and IF 900/60R32 CFO); the tyres were designed in line with a four-year 2009 ETRTO experimental standard which allows a load bonus of up to 55 per cent for cyclic field operations without the need to increase the inflation pressure.
“We are pleased to bring this new tyre to the UK and the Cereals show is the best place to present it to our customers and the UK’s farming media,” commented Goodyear Farm business manager Phil Stanton. “Goodyear has identified the requirement to deliver to the market a tyre which is specifically designed for use on harvesting machines. The tyres are designed to provide the performance benefits that these high load machines demand both in transport and in harvesting applications. The heavier load carrying capacity of these tyres provides farmers and contractors with opportunities to increase their efficiency when carrying out harvesting operations, helping to reduce their costs.”
