Some of the world’s best known agricultural equipment manufacturers impressed with a combined demonstration that showed how far tyre technology has improved furrow drawn implement performance
Heilongjiang China was the venue,one of China’s most important breadbaskets, as the demonstrations gave insights into how farmers can achieve better results through advanced solutions.
Two comparative demonstrations were conducted on site.
During the first test, a new John Deere 8R2304 tractor fitted with Trelleborg TM900 High Power single tyres, worked through in-furrow and on-land harrowing operations, while being tested for efficiency and fuel consumption.
During the second test– despite lower power – a John Deere 8R3004 tractor equipped with Trelleborg TM900 High Power dual extra-large tyres was pitted against a John Deere 8R3204 tractor fitted with a competitor’s premium dual standard tyres.
The test results confirmed the John Deere 8R3004 tractor equipped with Trelleborg TM900 High Power dual extra-large tyres outperformed the John Deere 8R3204 fitted with a competitor’s premium dual standard tires and finished the in-furrow competition first.
This was the first time the John Deere 8R3004 tractor was seen in action since its reveal during the 3rd China International Import Expo (CIIE) at the National Exhibition and Convention Center on November 7, 2020 in Shanghai China.
John Deere expect the specially numbered for China 8R Series tractors to be a big hit with farmers wanting to work larger-scale holdings.
David Wang, Retail Sales Manager at Trelleborg Wheel Systems in China, commented: “Trelleborg TM900 High Power tyres are designed with world famous agricultural machinery manufacturers.
“This series provides high powered machines with great traction, excellent self-cleaning, and outstanding comfort and operability, thus maximizing farming efficiency with lower soil compaction and fuel consumption.
“The new John Deere 8R series comes equipped with Trelleborg TM900 High Power tyres, that perfectly represent the concept of ‘efficient farming’ to Chinese consumers.” David Wang concluded.
During the event, Trelleborg showcased several different tyre solutions including the TM3000 Series for John Deere S660/S680 harvesters.
In addition to the TM800 and TM600 Series for John Deere 7M Series tractors, and tailored radial cultivator solutions for John Deere 8R Series tractors.
