The TM1000 ProgressiveTraction tire from Trelleborg Wheel Systems has been nominated “Best Agricultural Tire for 2020” by the Spanish magazine, “NMR – Neumáticos y Mecánica Rápida”, which specializes in tires and is geared towards professionals in the sector.
Seventy-nine candidates in eight categories are contenders in this contest that awards outstanding achievements in key sectors. With this nomination, the TM1000 ProgressiveTraction is being recognized for its superior technology and performance as well as its contribution to the agricultural sector in terms of innovation, performance and reduced environmental impact.
The highly successful, multi-award-winning ProgressiveTraction technology releases additional power to the ground and reduces stress on the soil while boosting the machine’s performance on the road.
Ramon Martinez, Country Manager Spain and Portugal, says:
“We are proud to receive this nomination, which is a testament to the efforts of our R&D, commercial and marketing departments.”
The ProgressiveTraction® tread was designed to meet the requirements of the latest generation of machinery, increasing power transmission efficiency to the ground while reducing soil compaction. At the same time, the double-edge-lug tread design was developed to reduce vibration, lowering energy dissipation, minimizing fuel consumption and at the same time extending service life. In fact, tests show that ProgressiveTraction® reduces fuel consumption by up to 3% and extends tire service life by up to 5%.
