Continental is expanding its product portfolio in the agricultural sector. The TractorMaster advanced radial tire complements the standard tires Tractor70 and Tractor85 which have been available since last year, Continental says.
Like the standard tractor tires, the TractorMaster comes with a flexible N.flex carcass and specially developed single-wire bead technology. The high elongation of the nylon material used for the carcass makes the tire robust and impact-resistant, the tiremaker says. The special bead design with a single-wire bead enables high deflection performance of the sidewall, to help with low soil compaction. A newly developed lug technology called D.fine with a 5% larger lug surface than standard tires helps the tire with high mileage, Continental says.
The tires will roll off the assembly line of Continental’s agricultural tire manufacturing facilities in Lousado, Portugal. The first sizes 540/65R28 and 650/65R38 will be available starting in mid-September. Further sizes will follow in the next few months, the company says.
