Farmers who are looking for replacement tires for sprayers now have a streamlined option with Titan’s new Ultimate Flex Technology (UFT) tire.
The new tire can be a replacement for three different kinds of sprayer tires including conventional, increased flexion (IF) and very high flexion (VF), according to the company.
Travis Lamb, field technician for Titan, says they’ve taken the technology from all three of those tire options and put it into one tire, which allows the producer to have varying degrees of air pressure to meet their needs.
As an example, the company says if a customer is running a sprayer with a 1,200-gallon tank they can have the inflation pressure set to 78 PSI like a conventional tire. However, if they are looking to decrease ground-bearing pressure, they may want to set the pressure to 64 PSI, which would be similar to an IF tire, or 50 PSI for a VF tire.
The tire was debuted at the Farm Progress Show in Boone, Iowa, and Lamb says they’ll be available to purchase through Titan Goodyear farm tire dealers.
