HANOVER, Germany — Continental A.G. is adding larger sizes to its TractorMaster and CompactMaster agricultural and industrial/earthmoving tire product lines in part to satisfy growing demand for bigger and more technologically advanced tires.
The new sizes are 600/70R34 in the TractorMaster line and 500/70R24 in the CompactMaster line. The new sizes are available worldwide, the company said.
The new TractorMaster size not only complements the existing range but can also be used as a front tire in combination with other specific tire sizes, Conti said. A 620/70R42 size is in the works as well as a rear tire option.
The new CompactMaster size complements the line's existing 460/70R24 size, providing more options for telehandlers in different operating conditions. The CompactMaster AG is designed for agricultural applications such as field operations, while the CompactMaster EM is tailored for hard-surface logistics tasks.
