Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, and it didn't take long for the Firestone name to become a leader in the ag tier market. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. He wanted to "Put the Farm on Rubber" and get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked traction and ride comfort. 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 to Support the Fairhaven Growing Season
Growers can increase efficiencies by running on flotation tires during certain seasons. Flotation tires aim to decrease the damage done to a field's yield. They're made with a wider footprint to limit soil compaction. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are perfect for getting better flotation and less soil compaction from planting to fieldwork, 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 Fairhaven, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To care for your plants from the beginning to end of the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers to crops.

That's what the Radial All Traction RC Tire is made to do. It's crafted 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. Your Fairhaven Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that provide outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Fairhaven?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Fairhaven. But first, you'll probably want to know: do tires or rubber tracks perform better when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer depends on a variety of factors. You can read more about it in the Tire Expert Center, Rubber Tracks vs. Tires, but what follows is a brief overview. Each system has its advantages. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Massachusetts farm. You may find it helpful to use a combo of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has shown that in terms of fuel economy, a track system will consume more fuel since it takes 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. For traction, our research has found that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. In reality, many factors can impact the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Fairhaven Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
