Lowering Farm Fuel Expenses with Tractor Tires

Tractor Tires Cut Farm Fuel Costs

Fuel is one of the largest expenses for a farm and while farmers can’t control the cost of fuel, there are some steps they can take to reduce the amount their tractors use—such as ensuring optimal wheel slippage and proper tire inflation pressure. In addition to improving fuel efficiency, optimal wheel slippage and proper pressure can lead to other cost-saving benefits such as decreasing time in the field, reducing yield-sapping soil compaction, and minimizing wear and tear on equipment.  

Just how much can you save by improving farm equipment efficiency? A bulletin from Michigan State University Extension estimates that poor tractor performance wastes nearly 150 million gallons of fuel each year in the U.S.

Customer Testimonial: Alliance 376 Flotation Radials

More Life. Less Cost.

At Crystal Valley in Madelia, Minnesota, Nik Samuelson has put Alliance flotation tires to the test on eight of the 11 TerraGator 9300s he oversees as shop coordinator. The remaining three will be replaced once the current tires of a different brand wear out.
He plans to replace them with either the Alliance 376 Multistar flotation radials he trusts or the new Alliance Agriflex+ 377 VF flotation radials he has been sampling for the past year.

The good news: he figures he won’t have too long to wait.

AgTech, VF Tires, and Improving Farm Operations

High-Tech VF Tires Improve Productivity and Efficiency on the Farm 

From high-tech software to high-flying drones, interest in agtech is exploding. According to research company Crunchbase, in both 2018 and 2019, venture capitalists invested more than $4 billion in just agtech startups alone. While flashy apps and autonomous machinery often steal the spotlight, numerous other, more understated technological advancements—like the development of VF (very-high flexion) tires—are happening right under our (tractors’) noses.

Sprayer Tires: Flotation, Row Crop, and VF

What You Need to Know about Sprayer 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.
