More on Firestone Ag Tires for Sale in Milton, PA

Once Harvey Firestone invented the pneumatic farm tire in 1932, it didn't take him long to make a name for himself in the farm tire market. As a farmer himself, Firestone was always developing in ways to help growers solve problems. 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." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. 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 Milton
During key seasons of the year, flotation tires can really support growers. Thanks to their wide footprint, flotation tires reduce soil compaction to help protect a field's yield. This unique farm tire provides traction and stability on soft surfaces, but without harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are great 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. Use Firestone flotation tires in Milton 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 depend on modern farming technology and your sprayer, the device that helps you apply herbicides, pesticides, and fertilizers 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 stability and handling—at any speed. 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 one of many exceptional Firestone sprayer tires. In Milton, your local Firestone farm tire dealer has a variety of sprayer tires that deliver excellent handling, lateral stability, and ride comfort.

What About Tire Tracks in Milton?
While shopping for farm tires, you might also hear about the benefits of using tire tracks in Milton. But first, you need to know: are rubber tracks better than tires when it comes to fuel economy, traction, roading, and soil compaction? 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 its advantages. 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. 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. All in all, many factors can impact the performance of conventional rubber tires and tire tracks. Both systems farm hard. It's all about finding the system that works best for your field. A Milton farm tire dealer or local Firestone Ag expert can help you select the right system for your needs.
