Nottingham’s Sherwood Farming reports that it is reaping the benefits after specifying a combination of sprayer and tractor tyres on its high-horsepower Fendt 720 Vario tractor, on the advice of its local Michelin Exelagri-accredited tyre dealership.
The company, which farms 3,500 acres of land, required a narrow tyre for inter-row crop work, which would also enable the tractor to tow a fully-loaded 14-tonne trailer during harvest. After seeking the advice of Pete Sampson, commercial manager at Tanvic Tyres’ Newark centre, and that of Michelin account manager Ian Whitwell, Sherwood Farming selected Michelin 380/85 R 34 YieldBib tyres for the front axle, and 380/90 R 50 SprayBib fitments for the rear axle of the tractor.
Following its title support for the Performance Car Show, Landsail Tyres is to sponsor a team in the 2015 Mongolia Charity Rally. The rally is an epic 10,000 mile, pan-continental road trip across mountain ranges, deserts and barren and inhospitable lands, starting in London and ending in the ancient Mongol capital of Ulaanbaatar.
