Firestone enters sprayer market with Performer Row Crop

Expanding its strategy to provide farmers with tyres that improve farming efficiency, Firestone has launched the Performer Row Crop series.

The new tyres are designed to provide maximum efficiency in the field and on the road through their high load-carrying capacity and high speed index, thereby enabling farmers to use large tanks and save time in spraying operations.

“Firestone concentrates on solutions that give farmers a more efficient and sustainable way of working, through savings in fuel consumption and working time” says Harald Van Ooteghem, Senior Manager Marketing Planning, Bridgestone Europe.

Firestone has carried this field efficiency through to the road, designing the new tyres with a high speed index.  Combined with the Dual Angle Lug drive pattern, Performer Row Crop tyres allow farmers to drive fast in all ground conditions, resulting in further savings. The tyres also demonstrate excellent accuracy, providing good ride comfort and steering response, even at these higher speeds.

On display for the first time at the SIMA 2013 International Agri-Business Show is the Performer 270/95R48 Row Crop tyre. In order to meet all farmers’ sprayer needs, Firestone will expand the size line-up of Performer 85-90-95 series in the near future.
