Trelleborg partners the 2014 National Ploughing Championships that will take place in Riocabado, Avila, Spain, on September 27.
Ramon Martinez Portillo, Country Manager for Spain and Portugal at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “At Trelleborg we believe that the National Ploughing Contest is a great initiative to promote excellence and passion in the farm business. That’s why we are glad to participate in these kinds of events. Furthermore, this is a great opportunity for us to showcase our innovative products and complete wheel solutions and to receive a direct feedback from our customers.”
Following the success of the 2013 event that was attended by 10,000 farming professionals, the contest, organized by the Spanish Young Farmers Agricultural Association (ASAJA), will bring together the best tractors in the country competing in a plot of 40 hectares. Winners in the two categories of fixed and reversible plough will be the Spanish representatives at the World Ploughing Championship 2015 to be held in Denmark.
Among the new products on show at the event are Trelleborg’s TM1000 High Power IF710/70R42 and TM3000 800/65R32 for harvesting machines. The BlueTireTM tread design of these tires has been engineered to maximize the tread width and ensure the widest footprint on the market, providing optimum pressure distribution and the utmost respect for the soil.
