After collaborating on the final leg of Trelleborg’s 2015 European Road Show for agricultural tires in the UK, Trelleborg has been selected as the official partner of tractor manufacturer Valtra on its Demo Tour 2016 across Europe.
Lorenzo Ciferri, Marketing Director Agricultural and Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: "Over the years, Valtra has demonstrated a long-term commitment to meeting the evolving wants and needs of farming professionals in a bid to foster the development of the agricultural industry. Here at Trelleborg, we too share that same commitment through the development of innovative solutions such as our new TM1060 tire range, helping farming professionals produce more with less.
“To be recognized so enthusiastically as a pioneer for innovation and be named as an official partner on Valtra’s 2016 Demo Tour is a fantastic achievement and one we are extremely proud of.”
The innovative TM1060 tire upgrades the Trelleborg offering of high performance solutions for new generations of tractors, ranging from 80 to over 300 HP. The range boasts an improved load capacity and overall performance. The largest size in the new range, the VF 710/60R42, provides a carrying capacity up to 40 percent higher than premium alternatives in the market. In addition, unlike many existing solutions on the market, it can be used with narrower rims, enhancing tractor efficiency.
During the Demo Tour, Trelleborg will conduct field demonstrations to showcase the importance of selecting the optimal tire inflation pressure for specific farming operations, as recommended using the Trelleborg Load Calculator.
Mikko Lehikoinen, Marketing Director at Valtra, commented: “Throughout its 2015 Roadshow, Trelleborg demonstrated its capacity to educate farming professionals on how to boost the efficiency and productivity of their farming operations. We firmly believe that the company’s unrivalled know-how and portfolio of best-in-class solutions will add value for our customers throughout the tour.”
Kicking off in Greece in January and continuing until late 2016, the tour will visit farm shows and special customer events in as many as 18 European countries, showcasing the latest generation of Valtra tractors, including the award winning N and T Series and the powerful S Series.
