Trelleborg’s new Sugar Cane tyre
Trelleborg has launched a new 710/70 R38 TM800 SugarCane specifically engineered for sugar cane applications. Lorenzo Ciferri, marketing director Agricultural & Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, said: “The Trelleborg TM800 SugarCane tyre is the result of years of experience and research in sugar cane fields. For example, to cope effectively with sugar cane stubble, the profile of the tyre lug’s base is significantly smoother and more rounded when compared to a conventional tractor tyre.”
According to the company, the structure of the new 710/70 R38 TM800 SugarCane has been designed to handle high torque and load transmitted to the tyre during demanding sugar cane farming operations. The bead width has been increased by 12 per cent to withstand the stress driven of severe farming conditions. In addition, the advanced profile of the tread lugs has been strengthened to boost the tyre tread resistance.
