Trelleborg Wheel Systems is hitting the road in Europe with Massey Ferguson to showcase the innovative TM1000 ProgressiveTraction line of tyres, alongside the TLC Plus App.
The TM1000 range includes the VF 650/75R42 tyre size that is being fitted to the recently released Massey Ferguson MF 8S Series.
When the Massey Ferguson MF 8S Series was launched on 24 July 2020 in a unique digital marketing event, it created quite a buzz.
The four models in the MF 8S Series run AGCO Power clean Stage V 7.4-litre, 6-cylinder engines and offer the increasingly popular power range of 151 to 195kW (205 to 265hp).
Nothing is left to chance on the MF 8S Series, with transmission choices to suit every operation. These will include the new Dyna-7 and Dyna E-Power (Dual Clutch) and popular Dyna-VT transmissions.
They offer higher hydraulic flow to cope with current and also possible future implement requirements.
There is also a high rear linkage capacity up to 10 tonnes.
Massety Ferguson 8S models are available to order now and deliveries will begin in December 2021.
Trelleborg’s TM1000 ProgressiveTraction tread, with Very High Flexion (VF) technology, was the choice of Massey Ferguson engineers for the new tractors.
The TM1000 ProgressiveTraction tread combines the best qualities of Trelleborg’s radial tyre range.
The “wing effect” maximises tread width, ensuring an extra-wide footprint, while ProgressiveTraction technology provides higher traction and better grip on the ground.
In addition, the double edge lug also enhances the inter-lug terraces of TM tyres, maximising the self-cleaning capability of the tyre.
These features, plus greater sidewall flexibility, minimal soil compaction and reduced vibrations as well as fuel consumption, are provided without compromising tyre strength.
Massey Ferguson MF 8S Series tractors will be on display throughout the tour, along with VF 600/70R30 equipment and the latest tyre size, VF 650/75R42.
Trelleborg’s tyre pressure TLC Plus technology and easy-to-use app, also helps farmers optimise tyre efficiency.
Using the right tyre pressure in operations not only improves traction and grip, but also reduces fuel consumption and soil compaction, improving crop yields.
The advanced TLC control system, based on the latest generation of sensors that measure the difference between the actual operating pressure and the ideal operating pressure of the tyres, sends information via Bluetooth to farmers’ mobile devices, or to their PCs.
