ZARAGOZA, Spain (Feb. 21, 2014) — "Sustainable farming" was the theme of Trelleborg Wheel Systems S.p.A.'s booth presentation at the FIMA Agricola 2014 show held in Zaragoza.
The company said it presented its portfolio of tires and complete wheel solutions at the event, which ran Feb. 11- 15, offering farming professionals "best-in-class solutions that boost the efficiency and productivity of their operations."
Trelleborg's sustainable farming-themed booth featured an LED waterfall that reflected the company's "sustainable stance and underlines its commitment to providing solutions which not only provide added value for the customer, but for the environment as well."
Among new products exhibited at the show, Trelleborg unveiled its giant IF900/65R46 TM1000 High Power tire with 46-inch THK rim. Its new BlueTire tread design—engineered to maximize tread width and ensure the widest footprint on the market—provides optimum pressure distribution and "the utmost respect for the soil," according to Trelleborg.
The company also featured its ProgressiveTraction concept agricultural tire, designed to improve farming efficiency via use of a double lug that, while operating on soil at different times, progressively releases higher traction where and when required.
