Nortec agricultural tires take a special place in the production assortment line: they have a special structure and are made from high-strength materials.
Every model of agricultural tires has been worked out thoroughly. When determining possible installation of Nortec products on different types of agricultural implements, the specialists considered peculiarities of the machinery operation: climate conditions, type of ground surface. They took the specific of work and their character into account. It is no wonder that the agricultural tires undergo regular inspection at every drive. They have to cope with heavy loads when making various maneuvers on the areas designed for ordinary driving. When moving for long distances, touching either stiff or loose ground surface, being in a working state round the clock in performance of seasonal agricultural works (tilling, harvesting, loosening, irrigation) and fulfilling other functions, Nortec agricultural tires always show excellent results.
The catalogue of Nortec agricultural tires contains items of 2 kinds*: tubular (TT) and tubeless (TL) tires. The second kind of products is considered to be less accidental, because the product structure can inhibit air loss, which helps to deliver the machinery under its own power up to the nearest repair station in case of insignificant damages of agricultural tires.
At present, the agricultural machinery is widely used in different scopes of activity. However, its main purpose remains performance of seasonal field works, during implementation of which the soil ground damages shall be reduced to a minimum. Nortec agricultural tires have namely this important feature. Furthermore, each item has:
Perfect adherence with the contact surface;
Uniform pressure distribution along the entire contact patch;
Good self-cleaning ability;
Long operational lifetime;
High degree of wear resistance.
The model line of Nortec agricultural tires includes rubber, technical specifications of which meet the customer demands completely. It shall be noted that the quality of Nortec tires produced in Russia is as good as the quality of foreign products. The Company’s specialists follow the process of tire release, while monitoring every production sector.к.
Technical specifications: peculiarities of agricultural tire choice
The quality of the machinery operation directly depends on technical specifications of agricultural tires and specific features of their tread pattern. The stability and manoeuvring capability of the machinery on operating surfaces also depends on the construction of the tread pattern in many respects. The ribbed tread pattern (“runlet”) is designed for trailers: it prevents side slipping and promotes good stability. The tread pattern consisting of multiblocks and nodes is installed both on moving and driving wheels. They are easy to operate on soft ground and gently influence the soil. The tires with the directed traction pattern are applied for wheels functioning under complicated weather conditions and on various ground types. The tread depth as well as type, size, angle of slope and ground grip shape have an effect on the cleaning properties of agricultural tires and, respectively, their flotation. Therefore, when choosing agricultural tires, it is necessary to know the information on the soil type, its moisture and adhesion. For the purpose of efficient machinery operation at high ground humidity levels, full-range rubber tires with the minimum quantity of ribs on the tread are preferable.
It is important to know that in case of replacement of agricultural tires, the size of the new tires shall completely coincide with the size of the component ones. Radial or bias tires can be installed on one transport axle. The installation of various structures is not allowed. The maximum permitted value of the tire load shall conform to the agricultural machine capacity.
