Bridgestone says it is “sowing the seeds for a busy season of sales amongst farmers and contractors, following what it describes as its “best ever” showing at LAMMA. Agriculture sales manager Stephen Lamb and his team presented the features of the manufacturer’s premium VT-Tractor range. With spring drilling planned for the coming weeks and months, and the UK’s wet weather causing headaches, the VT range offsets the worst that these elements can throw at farmers as it can operate at lower inflation pressures. With much larger footprints, the wettest and boggiest of land is still protected as a result.
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.
Bridgestone’s first nationwide tractor tour, has seen hundreds of farmers assemble and £2,000 donated to local Young Farmers’ Clubs. Two John Deere tractors stopped at 10 different locations in Scotland and England to demonstrate the tyre manufacturer’s new VX Tractor in a series of comparisons against comparable tyres.
