Michelin celebrated the 10th anniversary of its Ultraflex technology by conducting tire demonstrations at its research center in Ladoux, France. A select group of farmers, tire dealers and other industry influencers from around the world were invited to attend the event showcasing the company’s tire innovations.
James Crouch, farm segment marketing manager for Michelin North America, said that Michelin Ultraflex technologies enable tires to carry the same load at up to 40% lower air pressure than standard technology radial tires, or up to 40% more load at the same pressure. “Lower air pressure helps spread the weight of heavy farm equipment, resulting in a larger footprint, which reduces soil compaction,” said Crouch. “Lower compaction helps protect crop yields and offers better traction, which in turn improves fuel economy and productivity in the field.”
Michelin demonstrated the Ultraflex tire capabilities in four tests: safety, soil compaction, footprint and flotation. The safety demonstration showed that farmers can safely operate larger machines at higher speeds with Ultraflex tire technologies in their day-to-day operations. Michelin currently offers Ultraflex tire models for tractors, combines-harvesters, sprayers, crop-conditioning equipment and trailers.
