Mitas Tyres Limited chose the recent Cereals 2012 to highlight its extensive range of high specification row-crop tyres.
In conjunction with with Case IH, Mitas showed a selection of its latest row-crop tyres, as well as emphasising the importance of correct row-crop tyre selection.
Featuring 17 row-crop tyres from 270/80R32 (AC90) up to the latest 320/90/R54 (AC85), the Mitas range of row-crop tyres includes the high load capacity 320/85R32 (142A8) AC85, which the company developed specifically for use on self-propelled sprayers. This extensive choice of allows farmers to select the right size for all row-crop applications.
The new Mitas 320/90R32 and 340/85R48 AC85 row-crop tyres were demonstrated on a Case IH Puma 160CVX, as the row-crop substitute for the standard 540/65R28 front and 600/65R38 rear tyres. Developing up to 203hp, the Puma 160CVX is a popular choice for row-crop applications because of its high power-to-weight ratio and advanced CVX continuously-variable transmission, which optimises power delivery. Introduced by Case IH in 2011, this model is part of the eight-strong Puma CVX line-up, which ranges from the 131hp/171 hp 130 CVX to the 228hp/269hp 230 CVX.
