New Holland approves Continental tyres

LinkedIn +

New Holland T5, T6 and T7 tractors are now available with Continental TractorMaster and VF TractorMaster tyres. The tyres will be available up to a width of 710mm and a rim diameter of 42’’ and benefit from additional tyre technology to help operate tractors more efficiently.

The new relationship will see New Holland operators able to benefit from pressure monitoring technology that Continental has introduced to improve tyre efficiency and minimise the risk of potential tyre failure. ContiPressureCheck™ is a sensor that helps to monitor tyre pressure and heat build up. It can be specified on purchase or retrofitted to all TractorMaster tyres.

Best operating pressure

Continental customers can also calculate the best operating pressure for their tyres using a mobile app. The TireTech app holds data on all Continental tyres and only requires the weight of the tractor, including any implements, and the forward speed to be added in order to calculate the optimum operating pressure.

With New Holland, Continental has gained the support of another agricultural original equipment manufacturer. “The cooperation underlines Continental’s growth ambitions in the agricultural sector. The approval of Continental tyres for New Holland T5, T6 and T7 tractors completes the supply to all brands within CNH Industrial group”, says Jens Mund, Key Account Manager for agricultural tyre original equipment at Continental Commercial Specialty Tyres.

The following tyre combinations will be supplied to New Holland:

  • VF 710/60R42 NRO – VF 600/60R30 NRO
  • 710/70R38 – 600/65R28
  • 650/75R38 – 600/65R28
  • 650/65R42 – 540/65R30
  • 650/65R38 – 540/65R28
