Alliance tires are building a global reputation of performance and value among custom
applicators and farmers who use them on their self-propelled sprayers. We asked a few
professional custom applicators about their experience with the Alliance tires on their
rigs. Here’s what they told us.
Some problems have plagued farmers forever, like uncooperative weather and wet fields, while other issues are more modern, like the effect super-powerful and heavy tractors have on farmland. Farmers can’t control the weather or the need for larger tractors, but there is one solution that addresses the issues posed by both these problems: flotation tires.
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.
