332

Developed in collaboration with users and manufacturers, the MICHELIN CargoXBib High Flotation (HF) is a low-pressure transport tire, for use with trailers, spreaders and slurry tankers with a high-load capacity in agricultural applications. Now available in 28LR26 and 800/60R32 sizes, the tire is compatible with central tire inflation systems (CTIS).

The MICHELIN CargoXBib HF has a revolutionary new tread design that features 52 blocks with a wide footprint and a shallow tread that helps to reduce the power required to pull trailers. The central rib protects against soil compaction, reduces plant damage and provides comfort on the road. The tire also offers a wear indicator and accepts studs for specific applications.

“The less pressure a tire uses, the less compaction and rutting occur, resulting in higher productivity,” said David Graden, agriculture operational marketing manager for Michelin North America. “Producers are looking for solutions that respect the land while offering a return on investment
