The correct inflation pressure

Macchine e Motori Agricoli 54(5): 62-65

The correct inflation pressure

Research to identify optimum inflation pressures for radial tyres on agricultural tractors is reported. Inflation to lower pressures than are traditionally used has advantages in increased traction, reduced soil compaction, reduced tyre wear on roads and reduction of bounce. The minimum inflation pressure recommended by tyre manufacturers has been reduced from 83 to 41 kPa. Farmers will most often use pressures of between 124 and 165 kPa.
