OTR Engineered Solutions is introducing the TR-34 tire for farm tractors and ride-on mowers. It is designed to perform on grass, mud and loose soil, while reducing the risk of turf damage and soil compaction.
The TR-34 tire features an innovative non-directional design that optimizes tread wear, ride comfort and traction in both directions. The tread pattern is a hybrid between turf and industrial styles, helping it achieve a balance between performance and cost.
The tread-to-void ratio on the TR-34 tire ensures even pressure distribution throughout the contact patch, which reduces the risk of turf damage and soil compaction. Siped R1-style shoulder lugs enhance traction in mud and loose soil. Also, strategically placed mud breakers and rock ejectors provide efficient clean-out.
Four tire sizes are available: 16 X 7.50-8; 18 X 8.50-10; 24 X 12.00-12; and 26 X 12.00-12.
“The TR-34 was developed with end customers and turf equipment manufacturers in mind,” said Brian Walter, vice president-OEM sales. “It features a unique non-directional tread design, so there are no left or right tires for easy installation. It also delivers more function vis-à-vis its hybrid R3/R4 tread, with aggressive styling that our research confirms will enhance the appeal of the machine itself. This will make it a true win-win in the market.”
