Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Londonderry, PA

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 always looking for ways to help farmers. He was one, too. 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. 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 Londonderry 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 special type of farm tire provides stability and traction on loose ground, but without damaging the ground being driven on. Flotation tires are great for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during spring planting, fieldwork, tillage, and harvest. Where other tires dig in and damage the soil, flotation tires don't. They keep heavy-duty farm tires up and off the ground. With Firestone flotation tires in Londonderry, you can enjoy equipment that rides smoother, floats better, and makes your job easier.
Proper irrigation is essential if you ever want to get to harvest season. The irrigation professionals at your local Firestone farm tire dealer can help you choose for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. The Champion Hydro Non-Directional Tire is a popular choice. It's designed for linear and pivot irrigation systems. The non-directional tread pattern allows for balanced traction whether you're moving forward or backward. The Irrigation Special Tire for mobile irrigation is just that—special. It features a strong nylon-cord body and Firestone's 23° tread for stable traction and wear. Whether your system drips, sprinkles, or floods, you'll see that we have the appropriate tires and wheels for your irrigation setup.
To protect your crop through the growing season, you depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the equipment that helps you apply fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides to crops. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To stay current, new sprayer tires must be made for stable 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. Your Londonderry Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver excellent ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

Where to Buy Tire Tracks in Londonderry
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Londonderry. But first, you'll probably want to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to traction, fuel economy, soil compaction, and roading? The answer to that question depends on a few factors. Read all about it in the Tire Expert Center's Rubber Tracks vs. Tires. We'll also provide a short overview here. Each system has ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Pennsylvania 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. 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 reality, many things can alter the performance of traditional rubber tires over tire tracks and vice versa. Both systems get the job done. It's a matter of getting the system that works for your field. Your local Londonderry Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
