Farmers ask a lot of their equipment. This is particularly true for self-propelled sprayers that are tasked with handling a variety of applications, such as pre-plant, pre-emergence, and post-emergence herbicide applications. In addition to handling multiple tasks, sprayers also must work in an array of conditions, including everything from the wet fields of spring to sun-baked summer ground. One way to ease the strain on sprayers, improve their roadability, boost field health, and maximize yields is to equip them with an application-specific set of tires.

Logging equipment operates in some of the most demanding conditions for tires—steep slopes and muddy ground make traction a challenge while sharp stumps, branches, and rocks threaten puncture at all times. Forestry tires must also contend with the heavy weight and huge horsepower of modern logging equipment, along with the task of hauling hefty loads out of the forest. For such an imposing environment, the forest floor is surprisingly sensitive and the damage done during timber harvest can last for decades.
To deal with this conundrum, many logging operations are turning to flotation tires featuring rugged construction to stand up to extreme environments and the tough tasks required of them, while also reducing the impact logging equipment has on the forest and improving sustainability.

Flotation tires are known for their wide footprints that reduce the ground pressure exerted by heavy farm equipment—like tankers and trailers used for transporting goods and materials—spreading the load over a larger area than conventional tires. This attribute allows machinery to “float” on top of wet or soft surfaces. Flotation tires are an important tool for farmers, often meaning the difference between accomplishing fieldwork or waiting for more favorable conditions.
