New tyre for Pivots

Written by  Staff Reporters

Alliance, a part of Yokohama Off-Highway Tyres, has introduced a new tyre, especially designed for pivot irrigation systems.

The Alliance 768 Value Plus features a completely new pattern that provides effective grip and traction for the constant loads being moved on fixed circular paths under moist or even muddy conditions.

Wide spacing of the lugs means that self-cleaning properties are maintained at all times while a rounded shoulder provides constant propulsion and protects the crop against damage at the same time. A strong nylon carcass allows for a prolonged and reliable service live.

The Alliance 768 Value Plus features a special ozone compound which eliminates premature aging and cracking of the tread, said to be a consideration, as climate change continues, meaning investment in irrigation systems is likely to increase as the natural supply of water to crops diminishes.
