Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Butler, PA
Maybe you come from a long line of farmers like Harvey Firestone did, and you've shopped for agriculture tires in Butler many times. You know your spade grip tires form your guide grip tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Firestone Commercial can help on both fronts (and in the back forty).
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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. Firestone Commercial continues to advance farm tire technology at the Farm Tire Test Center, located on Harvey Firestone's original farmstead in Ohio.

Farm Tires in Butler: For the 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 stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting less soil compaction and better flotation during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. They help keep heavy-duty farm vehicles off the ground in situations where other tires would dig in and damage the soil. Use Firestone flotation tires in Butler for equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
You can't get to harvest season without proper irrigation.

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

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 just one of our sprayer tires.

Does Firestone Sell Tire Tracks in Butler?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Butler. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 comes with pros and cons. The best system for your Pennsylvania farm will depend on your specific operation. 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. 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 the end, many factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems get the job done. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Firestone Ag expert or your local Butler Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose the right system for your farm.
