Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Ellington, CT
Maybe you know where to find all the deals on ag tires in Ellington. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your high flotation tires from your flotation tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, the folks at Firestone Commercial get it.
Firestone has been a leader in the farm tire market for a long time, ever since Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. He wanted to move farmers away from using metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort, and "Put the Farm on Rubber," instead. Fast forward to 1950 and rubber tires were everywhere. Almost every farmer had installed rubber tires on their tractor. Harvey Firestone's legacy lives on in the Farm Tire Test Center, located on his original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Ellington: For the Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without destroying the surface being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during all phases of farming, from tillage to harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Ellington, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation. The irrigation specialists at your nearby Firestone farm tire dealer can help you select for your soil type, irrigation method, and equipment. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's made for pivot and linear irrigation systems. You'll enjoy balanced traction whether you're moving forward or reverse, all thanks to the non-directional tread pattern. Our Irrigation Special Tire is another top choice for mobile irrigation equipment. It has a robust nylon-cord body and Firestone's proven 23° tread for reliable traction and long wear. Whether your system sprinkles, drips, or floods, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the machine that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. Fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in a variety of sizes, with sprayer tanks becoming larger. To keep up, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stability and handling—at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. It's engineered to support the same load at lower pressure, or more load at the same pressure when compared to standard radials. But that's only one of our many sprayer tires. In Ellington, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding lateral stability, ride comfort, and handling.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Ellington?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Ellington. But first, you need to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read all about Rubber Tracks vs. Tires in the Tire Expert Center, but we'll provide a brief overview here, too. Each system has its advantages. The best system for your Connecticut farm will depend on your specific operation. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
In terms of fuel economy, Firestone Ag research has found that a track system will eat up more fuel since it requires more horsepower to rotate the track. With the proper tire inflation, a tracked tractor and comparable wheeled tractor will consume about the same amount of fuel. In terms of traction, our research has shown that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In the end, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Ellington Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
