The new VT-COMBINE tires by Bridgestone
Greater load capacity, excellent traction, larger tread footprint, great durability, less soil compaction and comfort for the operator are the key features of the new VT-COMBINE tires introduced by Bridgestone.
Designed for cyclic field operations, the VT-COMBINE with Improved Flexion and higher load capacity provides a 20% load increase compared to standard tires.
The new Bridgestone tire also offers maximum speed of 15 km/h compared to 10 km/h with the standard tire for optimizing the time needed for an important harvesting cycle. Gianni Grigatti, the Off-The-Road Bridgestone Europe South Region agricultural sales manager, reported, “During the harvest season farmers are working under pressure to bring in maximum yields in a short time. And this is why we are enthusiastic about launching this new tire, revolutionary in the agricultural sector.
The VT-COMBINE was tested on three continents over three seasons and gave optimum results. Combining high load capacity and lower pressure with a more ample footprint on the soil, in line with the vigorous IF CFO standard, the Bridgestone VT-COMBINE allows farmers to reduce compaction of the soil to the minimum and facilitate work in all conditions.” The VT-COMBINE was designed especially to cope with all conditions by ensuring excellent traction and stability, even on extremely hilly fields.
Thanks to IF, the VT-COMBINE can use lower inflation pressure for a load bonus of 55% (standard IF CFO).
Moreover, the new tire features include robust reinforced casing, flexible sidewalls, the new S-LINE, a very robust new bead profile which ensures durability under extreme conditions, and a longer bar and lugs which made it possible to eliminate the steel radial belt to ensure less impact on the soil and greater resistance to facilitate maintenance.
