Trelleborg Agricultural Tyre of the Year 2016 award in Spain
Trelleborg has won the “Neumático del Año Agrícola 2016” or Agricultural Tyre of the Year award in Spain. On 26 July Trelleborg received the award for its new TM1060 range. Organised by NMR magazine – Neumáticos y Mecánica Rápida – the award recognises outstanding contributions to the agricultural industry in terms of innovation, performance and respect for the environment.
The TM1060 range upgrades the Trelleborg offering for new generations of tractors, ranging from 80 to over 300 HP. The TM1060 tread design merges the best qualities of Trelleborg’s agricultural radial products. The tyre’s wing effect is said to maximise the tread width, ensuring an extra wide footprint, while trademarked ProgressiveTraction technology boosts the traction capability. Furthermore, the increased sidewall flexibility leads to very low soil compaction without impacting on the superior tyre strength.
On the road, the new sidewall design significantly lowers rolling resistance, fuel consumption and emissions, while increasing stress tolerance, comfort and security for the operator. The inter-lug terracing at the base of the lug helps with mud ejection, maximizing the self-cleaning capability of the tyre.
Ramón Martinez, Country Manager Spain and Portugal at Trelleborg Wheel Systems commented: “At Trelleborg, we hold a long-standing commitment to helping farming professionals produce more with less. To be recognised so enthusiastically in this category is testament to the TM1060 tyre’s ability to not only help farming professionals achieve higher efficiency and greater productivity, but do so with the maximum respect for the environment.
