Collaboration with Valtra: Continental Acquires First OE Customer for New Radial Tractor Tyre

  • Valtra A Series available with Continental Tractor70 and Tractor85 tyres starting from October.
  • Tyres already available from Valtra Unlimited Studio.
  • OE approval follows extensive joint field testing by Valtra and Continental.

Continental and agricultural machinery manufacturer Valtra are going to be working together in the future. The A Series from the Finnish subsidiary of AGCO will be available with the Tractor70 and Tractor85 tyres from October. Dealers and end customers can order the Continental tyres as an option for the compact and orchard tractors. The OE approval follows joint field testing by the two manufacturers.

Richard Hutchins, Agricultural Sales Manager, Continental Tyres commented: “Our European customers are always looking for new and advanced solutions. This fits exactly with the new range of Continental tyres which provide good on-road driving comfort as well as high traction in the field due to reduced tyre pressure.

The partnership with Valtra is perfect, pairing outstanding agricultural machinery with equally impressive tyres. This latest OE approval shows the Tractor70 and Tractor85 performance continues to impress in the industry and doesn’t look like stopping!”

Tractor70 and Tractor85: standard tyres with innovative N.flex and bead technology

Above all else, the Tractor70 and Tractor85 radial tyres are characterized by the innovative N.flex technology and a special bead design. The nylon material of the carcass is far more flexible and yet more dimensionally stable than other materials. As a result, it provides better damping as well as a high degree of ride comfort and prevents the temporary deformation of the tyre – a “flat spot” – at the start of operations.

Even with high tractive forces, both the new radial tyres ensure minimal slip and flatter tracks, which is kinder to the ground beneath the tyres. The tyre can be fitted in an instant thanks to the innovative bead technology featuring a single wire core and a shortened core profile. The bead design also allows the tyres to operate at low pressures and thus prevent ground damage to the greatest possible extent.
