New Firestone Sprayer Tires

Updated: 02/07/2013 @ 9:40am

Firestone is introducing new Radial All Traction Row Crop (RC) tires specifically designed to meet the unique needs of crop protection and fertilizer applicators. The tires are made with Advanced Deflection Design (AD2) technology, which allows them to carry heavier loads at lower pressure than conventional radial sprayer tires.

“The Radial All Traction RC tires are specially designed to address the load and compaction problems producers face with today’s large, self-propelled spraying equipment,” says Tom Rodgers with Firestone. “The specially-designed, wider tread bars on these tires create an application-specific tread pattern that provides both a smoother ride at faster speeds, as well as a longer and better-wearing tire. The AD2 sprayer tires are rated up to 40 mph so producers can get more done with less time than with standard tires.”

Compared to equivalent-sized standard radial tires, the sprayer tires deliver additional performance benefits, including:

  • Increased-flexion (IF) and very-high flexion (VF) designations that can carry more load at the same pressure or the same load at lower pressure, resulting in a large footprint and reduced soil compaction
  • Wider tread bars for improved distribution of ground pressure from the bar face
  • A curved bar design for a smoother ride
  • 20% deeper R-1W tread bars than the industry standard for longer wear and added performance in wet soils
