New tyre developments designed to reduce soil compaction, improve in-field performance and make the tractor operator’s life easier will be featured on the Trelleborg Wheel Systems stand at LAMMA 2019.

“Agriculture is changing with increasing demands put on equipment and a growing need for all in the industry to be mindful of environmental needs and protect the natural resources we rely on,” explains Trelleborg Wheel Systems UK marketing manager Jonathan Hewitt.

“Much of this is down to operator education and our technical teams spend many hours with our customers talking about correct tyre choice, management and inflation pressures for different tasks, but new technology can play a leading role too.”

Trelleborg’s new TLC Plus system could help growers reduce soil compaction by providing accurate real-time tyre pressure monitoring, says Mr Hewitt. Farmers are becoming more and more aware of the importance of the selection of the right pressure for their machines, he adds.

“The new Trelleborg TLC Plus App is an advanced, sensor-based check-up system, which measures potential tyre pressure gaps between the optimum pressure and the actual tyre inflation pressure and relays this information via wireless connectivity to the farmer’s mobile device or their PC.“

Another new development on show at LAMMA 2019 is Trelleborg ConnecTire which is a sensor-based system designed to improve traction efficiency through monitoring tyre pressure and minimising tyre slippage on the rim, Jonathan Hewitt explains.

“ConnecTire constantly monitors tyre pressure and temperature with data relayed to both the tractor and farm computers via Bluetooth and wireless connectivity.

“You simply set your target tyre pressure and should this deviate significantly, ConnecTire alerts you via its app so you can make adjustments as necessary. It also informs you if it detects tyre slippage.”

Personalised tyres

Trelleborg will be showing its innovative online YourTire tractor tyre personalisation service, which allows customers to have their own name added to a range of Trelleborg radial tractor tyres through an easy-to-use ‘4-click’ system via the website www.trelleborg-yourtire.com.

Visitors will also be able to learn more about the soil-saving advantages of the latest high flexion tyres and Trelleborg technical specialists will also be on hand to talk through options for different equipment including tractors and combines.

The Trelleborg stand is in Hall 2 no. 10.220 at LAMMA 2019.
