Get to Know Firestone Ag Tires in Ferndale, WA
Maybe you're a seasoned veteran when it comes to buying agriculture tires in Ferndale. You know your sprayer tires from your scraper tires. Your bias tires from your radial tires. Or, maybe you're just beginning your journey toward becoming a farmer. Either way, you can turn to Firestone Commercial for help.
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." By 1950, Firestone's dream was practically realized. Almost every tractor was rolling on rubber. 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 Ferndale: For the 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 harming the area being driven on. Flotation tires are ideal for getting better flotation and less soil compaction during all phases of farming, from 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 Ferndale, you can enjoy equipment that floats better and rides smoother.
If you want to get to harvest season, you better get your irrigation system fixed up right. The irrigation professionals at your closest Firestone farm tire dealer can help you buy for your equipment, soil type, and irrigation method. 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 Firestone's proven 23° tread and robust nylon-cord body for stable traction and wear. Whether your system floods, sprinkles, or drips, 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 machine that helps you apply pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. While fertilizers and self-propelled sprayers come in all sizes, sprayer tanks are increasingly becoming larger. To keep up, modern sprayer tires must be designed for stable handling at any speed. That's where the Radial All Traction RC Tire comes in. 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 only one of our many sprayer tires. Your Ferndale Firestone farm tire dealer has a catalog of sprayer tires that deliver outstanding ride comfort, handling, and lateral stability.

What About Tire Tracks in Ferndale?
Even though you're shopping for farm tires, you may also be interested in looking at tire tracks in Ferndale. 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 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 has ups and downs. Your operation will dictate the system you choose for your Washington farm. Some farmers can benefit from a combination of tire tracks and tires.
Firestone Ag research has insight into your questions. With regards to fuel economy, our research has shown that a track system will use 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. In the end, 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. Your local Ferndale Firestone farm tire dealer or Ag expert can help you choose between rubber tires and tracks.
