Mitas Powerpull

(Press Release) The special tractor pulling tire Mitas Powerpull has been released for sale in North America. After several months of in-house development and extensive testing, Mitas 30.5L32 148A8 Powerpull is available for pulling teams. It is manufactured as a slick tire without a tread pattern, allowing the competitor to create the winning tread design of their choice. Manufacturing of Mitas Powerpull 30.5L-32 is based on a process similar to that of Mitas’ high-horsepower tractor tires. This will guarantee endurance and durability.

Michelin Logo

Michelin will conduct special demonstrations at the 2014 Farm Progress Show, Aug. 26-28, in Boone, Iowa, to illustrate the benefits of its YieldBib VF tires with Ultraflex technologies compared to standard radial technology row-crop tires. As well, Michelin will showcase its new 50-inch SprayBib tire.

Michelin is planning two demonstrations for the YieldBib VF tires. First is a soil compaction demo, which will feature a large, above-ground pit that is designed to demonstrate the reduced soil compaction of a tractor equipped with Michelin YieldBib tires versus an identical tractor with standard radial tire technology. This is a static display that can be seen throughout the show. Second is the Michelin Traction Challenge. This live demonstration, lasting about 20 minutes, will take place on the “Michelin Testing Grounds.” Two identical tractors will pull against each other with the goal of showing improved traction as well as better fuel efficiency with YieldBib versus standard radial technology tires.

“PneuTrac brings together the best of both worlds in traditional pneumatic tires and rubber tracks,” Mitas says in a release.
