More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Upper Sandusky, OH

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. Firestone was a farmer too, and he was always looking for ways to help his fellow growers. His goal was to get farm equipment off of metal wheels, which lacked ride comfort and traction. In other words, "Put the Farm on Rubber." 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.

For the Growing Season: Farm Tires in Upper Sandusky
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Flotation tires are designed with a wider footprint to help minimize soil compaction, which can damage a field's yield. This type of farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without damaging the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation from planting to fieldwork, tillage to harvest. They help raise heavy-duty farm equipment off the ground in conditions where other tires would "grip and rip" the soil. With Firestone flotation tires in Upper Sandusky, you can enjoy equipment that floats better, rides smoother

To protect your crop through the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides.

What About Tire Tracks in Upper Sandusky?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Upper Sandusky. But first, you need to know: how do tires and rubber tracks compare in terms of soil compaction, roading, traction, and fuel economy? The answer to that question depends on a few 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 ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Ohio farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. The correct tire inflation can make all the difference, though. With the right tire pressure, a tracked tractor and a comparable wheeled tractor will employ about the same amount of fuel. And for traction, our research indicates that track systems perform better than wheeled systems at 0 - 3% slip. Increase slip to 5 - 9% and wheeled systems prove more efficient. All in all, many variables influence the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems work. It's all about matching the system to your field conditions. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Upper Sandusky Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
