Trelleborg’s TM1000 ProgressiveTraction® Nominated Best Agricultural Tyre for 2020 by NMR Magazine

The TM1000 ProgressiveTraction® tyre from Trelleborg Wheel Systems has been nominated “Best Agricultural Tire for 2020” by the Spanish magazine, “NMR – Neumáticos y Mecánica Rápida”, which specialises in tyres and is geared towards professionals in the sector. 

Seventy-nine candidates in eight categories are contenders in this contest that awards outstanding achivements in key sectors. With this nomination, the TM1000 ProgressiveTraction® is being recognised for its superior technology and performance as well as its contribution to the agricultural sector in terms of innovation, performance and reduced environmental impact.

The highly successful, multi-award winning ProgressiveTraction® technology releases additional power to the ground and reduces stress on the soil while boosting the machine's performance on the road. 

Ramon Martinez, Country Manager Spain & Portugal, says: "We are proud to receive this nomination, which is a testament to the efforts of our R&D, commercial and marketing departments."

The ProgressiveTraction® tread was designed to meet the requirements of the latest generation of machinery, increasing power transmission efficiency to the ground while reducing soil compaction. At the same time, the double-edge-lug tread design was developed to reduce vibration, lowering energy dissipation, minimising fuel consumption and at the same time extending service life. In fact, tests show that ProgressiveTraction® reduces fuel consumption by up to 3% and extends tyre service life by up to 5%.
