Trelleborg ProgressiveTraction wins FinOvation Award

US Recognition of Trelleborg’s ProgressiveTraction Agricultural Tire Technology

Trelleborg ProgressiveTractionTM technology will be honored with a FinOvation Award during the upcoming Farm Machinery show, which will take place from 11 to 14 of February in Louisville, Kentucky, U.S.

The show’s sought after award honors and recognizes the newest, most intriguing products in the agricultural industry. Farm Industry News carefully selects top products that have received the most interest from their readers throughout the year.

Piero Mancinelli, R&D Director, Agricultural and Forestry Tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “Being named ‘Machine of the year 2014’ at Agritechnica 2013, ‘Silver Ears 2013’ at Agribex 2013, and now winning Farm Industry’s readers’ choice award, FinOvation, speaks volumes. It gives us great pride that the agricultural industry recognizes Trelleborg’s commitment to continually develop solutions that improve the efficiency, productivity and sustainability of modern farming.”

The ProgressiveTraction™ tire is a new concept in agricultural tires, specifically designed to improve farming efficiency thanks to its double lug. Operating on the soil at different times, the double lug progressively releases higher traction when required. The double lug also provides the tire with better floatation capability, ensuring an even pressure distribution over the extra wide footprint.
