Mr Goodley farms in Norfolk, where he grows wheat, oil seed rape, peas, and forage rye. In addition, 175 acres have been given over to a stewardship scheme and he is growing AB15, a two-year sown legume fallow mixture.
Having invested in a SAM Horizon 4000 self propelled sprayer, James was conscious of the impact tyre pressures can have on soil compaction.
Patrick has a flock of 320 Cheviot Mule ewes with 100 ewe lambs and a further 80 pedigree Beltex ewes. He also has a small herd of 30 cattle, a mixture of Herefords and Simmentals.
When he bought a 2007 New Holland TM 155 tractor the tyres were almost worn out, so he was left with the unenviable task of finding suitable replacements.
The shiny green exterior and new Continental tyres make it hard to believe the tractor is nearing 50 years old, built on September 29, 1971.
The farm extends to approximately 1000 acres of hilly pastureland near Brecon, in the county of Powys. Aubrey and his brother carry out daily farm tasks, and their parents are still involved in the day to day management of the farm.
Denside is a mixed farm beside Auchenblae, Laurencekirk with farmland spread over a 20-mile radius that includes 400 beef cows, 1400 breeding ewes, 2000 finishing cattle and 6000 lambs, 600 acres of cereals and 100 acres of turnips and fodder beet are grown for feed. The premium brand tyres specified on the 6150R needed to be replaced so Alan started looking for an alternative.
Simon Codemo faces challenges in his daily work in his business "Codemo Machinery Services". He is therefore very pleased with the return of Continental and the wide range of agricultural tyres in this segment:
The soil conditions there are challenging, this means for Arcifa that they must work on a variety of different soils. "When we used the Continental Tractor85 on our farm, we found that the tyres had a minimal effect on the soil surface.” Mick Carbone, owner of “Agriculture Tyres and Wheels” also particularly appreciates the wide range of products Continental offers him.
The farm is positioned 700-1,200 feet above sea level and stretches to 145 acres of mixed hill ground.
Tudor’s previous Case covered 3,000 hours in just under three years. Whilst this is not uncommon, Tudor was surprised that, after just two years and a little under 2,000 hours, his tyres wore out.
Since then, the estate management team in Hellkofen has been using this tyre on its tractors both when harvesting grains and tubers and when spraying crop protection products on potatoes, beets and onions.
“We have been extremely happy with the Tractor85”
We need huge efficiency in our work and therefore we are always looking for products that can go hand in hand with that. When we are performing at 100%, we can not allow ourselves to have something that doesn’t work.
The smell of recently harvested hay and grain still fills the air. The continuous purring of engines breaks the silence. Stubble and grass are being turned into furrows so straight that you might think they had been drawn by a ruler.
