Bridgestone’s pulling power at LAMMA
Bridgestone will show off its pulling power at LAMMA alongside its Firestone brand on 7-8 January 2020. The manufacturer hopes that its dual-brand approach to the agricultural show will double its impact on people visiting the stand, which will feature a multi-V8 modified tractor puller called ‘Aftermath’ on Firestone Puller 2000 tyres centre stage.
In addition to this, Bridgestone’s VX-Tractor tyre – fresh from a nationwide tour – will also feature heavily at LAMMA, as will the Performer 70-85 Extra, which features a compound upgrade and is ideal for medium horsepower tractors.
One of the main messages Bridgestone will be imparting will inevitably be weather-related, with so much wet weather causing huge headaches, which as now lead to what will be, a very busy Spring drilling period of work. Bridgestone’s VT range offsets the worst that these elements can throw at farmers, as it can operate at lower inflation pressures, and with much larger footprints, helping farmers to establish an earlier drilling window in Spring, while still protecting the boggiest of land.
Bridgestone’s AG sales manager Stephen Lamb said: “This back-end has been extremely wet for so many farmers, causing a lot of work now, to be put off until this coming spring. With our VT range it’s possible to start a little earlier, and in that way, helping to get the work back on track.”
