Looking to replace your irrigation tires? Well, it may be more complicated than you think. Whatever your problem may be, it’s important that you understand the type of tire that you need to fix your problem. Here’s a short guide that might help you.
Roto-moulded plastic tires are rather a new introduction to the field of agro tires, but they are creating waves in the industry. They last longer than rubber tires and allow farmers to buy tires without rims. They are UV treated and offer an approximate lifespan of 10 years.
Like plastic tires, all-steel wheels are a no flat solution. They bear a higher price tag as they come with both the tire and the rim. However, you may face a few issues with these tires; the wheels can rut, and they can also break. The trick is to do your research and opt for a reputed manufacturer; GRI Tires is a fine example.
You can choose from two types of tracks for irrigation systems: complete track systems and over-the-tire. Over-the-tire tracks, as the name suggests, go on top of the existing tires, and track systems are a complete solution for difficult soil conditions. The option you should go for depends on the amount of use and the soil conditions.
Looking for a pneumatic tire solution? radial tires are one option. They can run at a low air pressure while treading flat on the ground, which maximises the footprint. These tires are built with higher bead tolerance and comply well with modern technology.
