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. 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. Today, Harvey Firestone's original Ohio farmstead is still in use. It's home to the Firestone Farm Tire Test Center, where farm tire tech continues to develop!

Farm Tires to Support the Duncansville Growing Season
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. 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 special type of farm tire delivers stability and traction on soft ground, but without destroying the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal 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 Duncansville, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation specialists at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your irrigation method, equipment, and soil type. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a top seller. It's crafted specially 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 features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for long wear and reliable traction. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, you'll find that we have the right irrigation tires and wheels for your setup.
To safeguard your crop during the growing season, you turn to modern technology and your sprayer, the equipment 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 stay current, new sprayer tires must be made 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 just one of our sprayer tires. In Duncansville, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that provide superb handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Duncansville
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Duncansville. 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 Pennsylvania farm. You might even be able to benefit from a combination of tires and tire tracks.
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. 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. All in all, many variables influence the performance of tire tracks over traditional rubber tires and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Duncansville Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
