Goodyear Farm Tires — a Titan Tire Corporation brand — has introduced the Ultra Sprayer line of tires specifically designed for high-clearance, self-propelled sprayers.
“In the past, many manufacturers used conventional tractor tires on self-propelled sprayers,” says Jeff Vasichek, vice-president of sales and marketing for Titan Tire Corporation. “Conventional rear tires were not built to accommodate the high load and pressure demands of today’s self-propelled sprayers. The Ultra Sprayer line was designed specifically for this application.”
The Ultra Sprayer tire features tread bars engineered to carry heavy sprayer loads and a wider lug to promote longer wear characteristics compared to conventional tractor tires. These design features also provide more stability and a better ride when traveling from field to field at road speeds up to 30 mph.
A significant increase in lug surface area helps improve lug wear, while increases in lug bracing and surface area combine to deliver improved durability, even under heavier loads. This design also offers superior traction in the field.
The Ultra Sprayer product line is available in 46-, 50- and 54-inch sizes and widths from 12.6 to 15.2 inches to accommodate row-spacing from 20 to 36 inches.
