Michelin says its new TrailXBib ag tire, made for slurry wagons, spreaders and trailers, is designed for endurance, prolonged tire life and low soil compaction.
Co-developed with farmers from several continents, the Michelin TrailXBib is air-systems ready and designed with Michelin VF Ultraflex Technology to help reduce soil compaction and optimize yields. The tire has a low-pressure impact in fields and is puncture and aggression resistant, the company says.
The company says the Michelin TrailXBib tire has these major benefits:
- High endurance due to a new steel-belted casing meeting the VF2 standard for better robustness and soil protection;
- Self-cleaning properties provided by a specific tread pattern for better evacuation of mud with no closed areas;
- Tire-life improvement with a new tread pattern design incorporating a central rib designed to ensure regular wear.
- Immediately available in sizes VF 560/60 R22.5 and VF 650/55 R26.5, other dimensions will gradually complement the range.
In addition, the Michelin MachXBib, a radial tractor tire used in soil preparation, planting and treatment, is now available in two additional sizes, 600/70 R30 and 600/65 R28, with an increased speed rating.
Also, the Michelin SprayBib, a radial high-clearance sprayer tractor tire able to operate at lower air pressures than a conventional narrow tire, is now available in a VF 320/90 R46 size.
