Continental has announced the expansion of its agricultural tire portfolio, with new sizes for its TractorMaster and CompactMaster AG/EM product lines now available.
The tire supplier is thus responding to the trend towards larger and more powerful agricultural machinery and the demand for bigger and more technologically advanced tires.
New Additions to Continental's TractorMaster, CompactMaster AG/EM Ranges
Continental has introduced a new size for its popular TractorMaster product line: the 600/70R34. This addition not only complements the existing range, but also can be used as a front tire in combination with other specific tire sizes. The premium tire supplier also will launch the TractorMaster 620/70R42 as a rear tire option in the near future.
The CompactMaster product line, initially available in size 460/70R24, now also comes in 500/70R24, providing more options for telehandler in different operating conditions. The CompactMaster AG is designed for agricultural applications such as field operations, while the CompactMaster EM is tailored for hard-surface logistics tasks.
"With the size 500, we are meeting the demand from our customers, as well as responding to the trend toward larger vehicles and diverse operational requirements," said Ivonne Bierwirth, head of business, field agricultural tires.
