MMichelin is launching a new CargoXBib High Flotation trailer tyre, with four VF-rated sizes designed to keep soil compaction to an absolute minimum.
The VF 650/55 R26.5, VF 600/55 R26.5, VF 710/50 R26.5 and VF 750/60 R30.5 are said to be manufactured with increased flexibility and, therefore, have even less impact on the soil than the existing CargoXBib High Flotation range.
Designed specifically for trailers, spreaders and slurry tankers, the new VF CargoXBib High Flotation tyre will replace the CargoXBib High Flotation tyres in the four equivalent sizes.
According to Michelin, the VF rating sets new standards in the market, allowing the tyre to carry 40 per cent more load at the same pressure than a standard tyre. The footprint area of the VF CargoXBib High Flotation is 23 per cent larger than that of its predecessor which, when combined with its ability to run at very low pressures, helps to preserve the soil.
The new tyres will be launched onto both the original equipment and replacement markets in July 2019.
