Bridgestone set to make big impression at Grassland & Muck 2017

Bridgestone are set to make a big impression at Grassland and Muck 2017, launching its largest agricultural tyre to date at this national event.

Bridgestone will showcase the IF1050/50 R32 CFO at the Stoneleigh event, with the tyre joining a selection of premium products already within the brand’s portfolio.

Farmers and Contractors will be the very first in the United Kingdom, to see the new tyre as it is officially introduced into the marketplace.

This latest introduction to Bridgestone’s range of tyres is manufactured to the higher Increased Flexion specification standards, giving the tyre 20% greater load carrying capabilities, or a 20% reduction in operating pressure, to that of a conventional tire.

Developed with large scale, high-output muckspreading operations in mind, the IF1050/50 R32 CFO meets all Cyclical Field Operation specification.

Prior to the unveiling, Steve Hewitt, Agricultural Product Manager for Bridgestone UK said: “We are looking forward to presenting the latest tyre in the Bridgestone portfolio to visitors at Grassland and Muck 2017.

“The tyre is our largest to date and we are proud of the huge benefits that it can bring to any large muckspreading operation.

“We look forward to speaking to Farmers and Contractors at the event, and hope they’ll be able to visit the Bridgestone stand to see the IF1050/50 R32 CFO firsthand.”

Members of the Bridgestone Agricultural Tyres team will be available on the day to discuss the product, its benefits & application, at Stand 816 from 8.30am on 24-25 May.
