New Holland T5, T6 and T7 tractors are now available with Continental TractorMaster and VF TractorMaster tyres, with widths of 710mm and a rim diameter of 42 inches.
The new relationship will see New Holland operators benefit from pressure monitoring technology that Continental has introduced to improve tyre efficiency and minimise the risk of potential tyre failure. ContiPressureCheck is a sensor that helps to monitor tyre pressure and heat build-up; it can be specified on purchase or retrofitted to all TractorMaster tyres.
Continental customers can also calculate the best operating pressure for their tyres using a mobile app: TireTech. The app holds data on all Continental tyres and only requires the weight of the tractor, including any implements, and the forward speed to be added, to calculate the optimum operating pressure.
The following tyre combinations will be supplied by Continental to New Holland:
- VF 710/60R42 NRO – VF 600/60R30 NRO
- 710/70R38 – 600/65R28
