The type of tires you use on your tractor will affect your productivity. Knowing which one is best for your needs will save you time and expenses.
There are four types of tractor tires. The Ag, also known as R1 or agricultural; Turf, also known as R3; Construction or R4 and the Industrial tire.
Agricultural: This tire is found on most tractors and is perfect for muddy conditions. These R1s work well in fields where there’s soft, loose dirt.
Turf: This type is common where you’d like to avoid damaging the grass, like golf courses and lawns. The R3 doesn’t offer major torque and works best in dry conditions, as they tend to slip on wet surfaces.
Construction: This tractor tire is a composition of both the R1 and R3, ideal for hard surfaces like gravel, concrete, and asphalt. These R4s work well in dry conditions and construction worksites.
Industrial: These versatile tires have a design structure to grip various surfaces and are more puncture-resistant than other types of tires.
When you’re selecting your tires, consider the work you want to accomplish with your machine. Check the size of the tire and rim to purchase the perfect fit.
Here are a few troubleshooting tips for tire problems:
This problem arises by the tire hitting an object with a force it can’t handle, rupturing the fabric. When the rubber is experiencing excessive tension, it’ll break easier. By using extra ply tires, careful driving, and not overinflating them, you can avoid these issues.
The occasional piece of glass, sharp stone, or steel wire can puncture or cut your tire. When the rubber is wet, it cuts easier; inspect the tires frequently to avoid further damage.
Field tires can often be repaired. Check a cut or tear quickly though, as moisture and dirt entering the break will deteriorate the cords, making it irreparable.
Slippage of the tire bead results in valves tearing off tubes. The reason this is happening could be low-pressure inflation. Uncontrolled soap solution in use when mounting the tire can also cause this issue.
