15 Mar Trelleborg Unveils New VF1050/50R32 TM3000 Spreader Tire
Trelleborg recently unveiled a new size of tire in its TM3000 range for spreader applications, the VF1050/50R32, with ProgressiveTractionTM technology.
According to a press release by the tire manufacturer, this new size in the TM3000 range has been developed to provide farming professionals with increased productivity, lowering overall operating costs while still respecting the environment in line with Trelleborg BlueTireTM technology.
The VF1050/50R32 offers the benefits of the VF construction and a D rated load index (65 Km/h; 40 mph). Compared to standard options in the market, the VF construction allows the machine to carry up to 40 percent more load at the same pressure or to inflate the tire with up to 40 percent less pressure while carrying the same load. This means that the tire can carry up to 13,200 kg (29,100 lbs) at 3.6 bar (or 52 psi).
Another important feature is the adoption of Trelleborg ProgressiveTractionTM technology which not only increases traction, but helps protect the tire from stubble damage and improves road wear resistance and comfort. In addition, the rounded shoulder of the tread, makes the VF1050/50R32 very respectful on soil and grassland, and improves machine handling.
