In April, Mick and Brian from Ag Tyres & Wheels met with Josh, a cereal crop farmer from Elmore in Victoria, to inspect the performance of his new John Deere 8R 280.
The tractor has been fitted with dual wheels, and Michelin Tyres manufactured and supplied for his specific needs.
Josh was looking to purchase a new machine for his enterprise, he contacted Howard O'Sullivan from Haeusler's Echuca, who had the requested machine in stock, but it didn't have the correct tyre and wheel configuration.
Howard contacted Brian from Ag Tyres & Wheels to source the correct tyre and wheel setup.
The solution -
Supply single Michelin 480/70R34' for the front, for controlled traffic at 2.1 metres to match other implements on-farm, and utilise wheels from one machine to another, if the situation required.
Configure dual Michelin 520/85R46's for the rear to maximise floatation and reduce soil impact.
The on-site inspection by Brian, Mick and Howard confirmed that Josh is completely satisfied with the machine, tyre/wheel configuration and the great results delivered.
If you need support to deliver the machines customers require, please give Ag Tyres & Wheels a call for the correct configuration to satisfy your machinery customers. Let's make tracks!
