Trelleborg brings better performance to ground spreading operations with new MPT100 specialty steel-belted tyre

Trelleborg has stepped up to meet the growing demands of farmers looking to increase reliability and productivity in their ground spreading operations, with the release of its newest steel-belted tyre, the MPT100.

Conceived for municipality and transport applications, the radial tyre is specifically for use on multi-purpose vehicles and fertilizer trucks used in ground spreading.

Mark Prentice, National Sales Manager at Trelleborg Wheel Systems in New Zealand says: “Trelleborg turned to the latest fleet machinery for inspiration in creating the MPT100 tyre, which was designed for both field and road surfaces. The MPT100 tyre ensures excellent stability and greater wear resistance, while its flat tread crown reduces soil compaction. The tyre goes even further by providing for optimal self-cleaning as well, due to its carefully crafted inter-lug terraces that enable mud ejection and prevent the tread from clogging even in intensely muddy conditions; this way farmers can rely on a tyre that’s always working at top efficiency.”

Ground spreading calls for higher horsepower and high loads and the MPT100 is proven to handle the intense demands of even the toughest operations. Minimizing vibration and maximizing roadability, while allowing for some of the highest load ratings on the market, the tyres support an additional 1,100 kg tyre rating even when running at speeds of 90 kilometers per hour.

“Trelleborg works hard to stay close to our customers,” adds Mark Prentice. “Out in the field in New Zealand, we saw that farmers were not achieving the results they could when it came to ground spreading. So as a leader in the specialty tyre industry, we wanted to fill this void and support their operations by delivering greater efficiency, stability, and traction. The MPT100 does all this and more, providing farmers with maximum performance both on and off the field.”

The Trelleborg MPT100 is available in three sizes: 405/70R20, 425/75R20 and 445/65R22.5.
