Cyclical Field Operation Harvest Tires

02/05/2013 @ 11:57am

Firestone is rolling out new Cyclical Field Operation (CFO) harvest tires, which will be available later this year. The CFO tires are engineered with an increased-flexion (IF) designation and are part of a new class of farm tires with Advanced Deflection Design (AD2) technology.

“The CFO tires meet the demands of extreme load cycles during harvest so producers can get more work done in less time,” said Tom Rodgers with Firestone. “CFO is an extension of our recently introduced AD2 technology, which allows for cyclical loading of tires that meet the tire and rim industry standard for IF loading. Our technology will accommodate the ever-increasing loads of both today’s and tomorrow’s advanced harvesting equipment and do so with reduced ground pressure.”

Specific benefits of the new tires include:

  • Reduced soil compaction due to an increased deflection and larger footprints
  • Improved traction and added fuel savings due to less time in the field
  • Improved ride with increased sidewall deflection
  • Longer wear and added performance in wet soils because of 20% deeper R-1W tread bars
