There’s a common denominator on most tractors and combines — the machine-to-ground interface. These days, that can be tires or tracks, and there are innovations happening in both areas.
For tires, the rise of high-flex tires also brings a new look to the tread on those tires. You’ll also find a range of tire innovations in terms of tread shape and even hybrid looks to provide added performance.
For tracks, speed is a new goal. Losing speed on a machine just to get the other benefits of tracks may not be enough for some producers. Getting better road speeds can boost productivity — especially on larger machines, where idle time is costly.
Check out this roundup of new tires and tracks to get a glimpse of the innovations that are happening in this market segment.
