In order to cope with his tremendous amount of activities and maximize his profit, Henk has focused on automating operations and services. “With Trelleborg, I save time and money,” says Henk Dirksen. “Having past experience with Trelleborg bias ply tires over 10 years ago when OK Tire recommended the Trelleborg radials, I was confident that my expectations would be met. What really surprised me is when we had the TM900s (900/60R42 and 600/65R34) installed on my NH T8030 and TM800s (dualed 650/65R42 ) fitted on my Articulated NH T9020. The tires ride better, clean effectively and allow me to run with reduced pressure to minimize soil compaction.

My infield output has increased by 20%. The traction capacity, new tire upsize and tractor set up actually allow me to run 3 miles per hour faster than the tires originally fitted on the tractor. If anyone told me that Trelleborg tires actually ride better when I’m roading, I would say, “come on!” To my surprise, they do ride better, even at 35 mph. Setting up my tractors with the proper balance and optimum air pressure has made a huge difference.

I can’t afford any break downs and set up my tractors with optimum tires to outlast my tractor trade in cycle. The less time it takes to do our field work gives my family and me more time to spend at tractor pulls and local 4H events. Trelleborg tires help me do it better, because it’s all for the cows!
