Trelleborg announces that the second stop on its 2015 European Road Show for agricultural tires will be at the exhibition Borgeby Fältdagar in Borgeby, Sweden, on June 24 and 25. Two field demonstrations will be held each day, in which two tractors with different tire inflation pressure will compete over a 160 meter track, head-to-head.
The demonstrations will showcase the importance of selecting thethe optimal tire inflation pressure for specific farming operations, as recommended using the Trelleborg Load Calculator. To do so, two Fendt 828 tractors, one fitted with Trelleborg TM900 High Power radial tires and the other with Trelleborg TM1000 High Power radial tires, with different inflation pressure, will compete over the 160 meter track. The two tractors will be monitored by digital chronometers that will measure the time gap between the two tractors. Two pipes will be set up to show the precise fuel consumption over the run and a computer application will calculate the efficiency savings.
Lorenzo Ciferri, Marketing Director Agricultural and Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: "When farmers want to increase their crop yields and preserve their land they can benefit from mastering the latest digital innovations to boost performance and share best practice; the Trelleborg Road Show 2015 provides the ideal platform to demonstrate this.”
Taking centre stage at Trelleborg’s stand at Borgeby Fältdagar will be the new tire TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ in dimensions 420/70R28 and 520/70R38. TM700 ProgressiveTraction™ is a new /70 series of radial tires designed to meet the renewed focus of tractor manufacturers on the performance of middle range tractors. Engineered according to the company’s BlueTireTM technology, the TM700 tire optimizes the efficiency of farming operations thanks to excellent traction, superior self-cleaning and extra mileage.
Lorenzo Ciferri continues: “We thoroughly look forward to showcasing the power of our BlueTireTM technology and how both can help farming professionals enhance their operations and protect the future of their business.”
Borgeby Fältdagar is a combination of field demonstrations that include crop production, exhibits by companies, seminars and practical demonstrations of machines and equipment. It is the natural meeting place for professional farmers in Sweden and attracts several companies with a range of products and services. The exhibition is aimed at professional farmers in northern Europe.
