Trelleborg has added yet another award to its collection, taking home the “Neumático del Año Agrícola 2016” award in Spain. On July 26, Trelleborg received the award for its new TM1060 range with ProgressiveTraction™ technology. Organized by NMR magazine - Neumáticos y Mecánica Rápida - the award recognizes outstanding contributions to the agricultural industry in terms of innovation, performance and respect for the environment.
TM1060 range upgrades the Trelleborg offering of high performance solutions for new generations of tractors, ranging from 80 to over 300 HP.
The new TM1060 tread design merges the best qualities of Trelleborg’s agricultural radial products. Whilst the wing effect maximizes the tread width, ensuring an extra wide footprint, the ProgressiveTraction™ technology boosts the traction capability. Furthermore, the increased sidewall flexibility leads to very low soil compaction without impacting on the superior tire strength.
The TM1060 features a higher load capacity compared to the same sizes in standard technology. The Trelleborg /60 series is a step ahead with regards to tires for medium and high power tractors, allowing the same load at lower pressure or a higher load at the same pressure.
Capable of working at extremely low pressure, with the typical aspect ratio of a 60 series, the TM1060 generates an extra wide footprint area improving farm productivity and crop yield while respecting the soil.
On the road, the new sidewall design significantly lowers rolling resistance, fuel consumption and emissions, while increasing stress tolerance, comfort and security for the operator. The inter-lug terracing at the base of the lug helps with mud ejection, maximizing the self-cleaning capability of the tire.
Ramón Martinez, Country Manager Spain and Portugal at Trelleborg Wheel Systems commented: “At Trelleborg, we hold a long-standing commitment to helping farming professionals produce more with less. To be recognized so enthusiastically in this category is testament to the TM1060 tire’s ability to not only help farming professionals achieve higher efficiency and greater productivity, but do so with the maximum respect for the environment.”
Juan Alberto de Sosa, Director Neumáticos y Mecánica Rápida, says: “Born in 2000, the award “Tire of the Year” in Spain turns 16 with a heritage that sums up the history of the tire and it became a reference in the tire industry of our country. This award to Trelleborg has special value for us because this year we introduced the category “Agro industrial tires” for the first time.”
