How to choose the best sprayer tyres for your workload

Fri, 29 Apr 2022 | PRODUCTS


If you are seeking new sprayer tyres for your self-propelled machine, assessing factors such as the type and amount of work your sprayer has to do, and the terrain on which it has to work and travel, will help you make the right choice when searching for ‘sprayer tyres for sale’ or ‘sprayer tyres near me’, or scanning a sprayer tyres price list.

Sprayers spend their working lives carrying costly cargoes of crop protection products that need to be transported with care and applied with the utmost accuracy. This make equipping your sprayer with the best possible sprayer tyres for the work it is expected to do a sound investment. Whether you are replacing the sprayer tyres on anexisting machine on the farm, or you have a choice of tyres when it comes to specifying a new machine you are ordering, here are a few factors to consider in helping you make your selection.

Load-carrying capability

Very high flexion (VF) sidewall design technology is particularly beneficial when it comes to improving the performance of your sprayer. CEAT Spraymax VF sprayer tyres are engineered with VF sidewalls which mean they can carry 40% more load than a standard radial of comparable size operating at the same pressure. This makes them particularly ideal for farmers and contractors looking to move to sprayers with a larger tank size, to reduce the number of refills necessary and lengthen the time between refills, minimising downtime and maximising productivity.

Ground pressure

While some farmers may be most concerned with sprayer capacity and getting large areas of crops sprayed quickly during good weather periods, for others their soil type or general concerns over compaction may mean that minimising the depth of tramlines over the season is a priority, especially if they have to work on soils which may not dry out that quickly after rain. A further advantage of VF tyres is that, as an alternative to the point above, they can carry the same load as a standard radial of the same size at 40% lower pressure. This widens and lengthens the tyre’s footprint, spreading the sprayer’s weight over a greater area and reducing ground pressure and soil compaction.

Tread design

Maintaining secure grip and traction is important for maximum output and productivity in all situations, but particularly on fields that are hilly and land that is steep, where safety is also a concern. CEAT Spraymax VF sprayer tyres are designed with a stepped lug format which enhances grip and ensures surefooted traction regardless of terrain, gradient or soil moisture. Rounded shoulders also minimise crop damage as the sprayer tyres pass through the tramlines.

Road travel

Many of today’s larger farms and contracting businesses work over considerable land areas, necessitating significant road travel between fields and land blocks. CEAT Spraymax VF sprayer tyres are designed with these demands in mind, incorporating a centre tie bar that makes for smoother road travel, and a high non-skid depth for durability over a longer lifetime.

Available in a wide range of sizes from VF-380/90 R 46 to VF-480/80 R 50, CEAT SpraymaxVF sprayer tyres meet the criteria required by demanding cropping farmers and contractors for load-carrying, ground pressure, tread design and road travel capabilities. Consider these points to help you make the best choice of sprayer tyres to suit your workload whennext searching for ‘sprayer tyres for sale’ or ‘sprayer tyres near me’, or scanning a sprayer tyres price list.
