For farmers, the peak of the season begins with the arrival of summer. Harvesting time draws near, and with it the reward for all the work done in the field over the past year. To ensure a successful harvest, it is extremely important to choose quality tyres for your machinery that minimize harvesting losses while providing maximum soil protection and a comfortable ride.
The Mitas HC3000 radial tyres are a fantastic choice for this season. They are designed for harvesters with power outputs of over 180 HP and expand the offer of harvesting tyres under the Mitas brand, which also includes the popular SFT CHO series.
The primary advantage of the HC3000 tyres is their high load capacity, enabling more efficient transportation of the harvested crop. HC3000 tyres are part of the VF (Very High Flexion) group, meaning compared to regular tyres they have up to 40% greater load capacity, which is also independent of speed. This capability likewise translates into improved user comfort, as the driver does not need to change tyre pressure according to speed – everything can remain constant. Another positive aspect of the VF tyres is slippage reduction, as their ability to run at lower inflation pressures gives the tyres excellent traction.
Farmers will definitely appreciate the fact that HC3000 tyres are manufactured in a reinforced CFO (Cyclic Field Operation) version for cyclic work in the field – during harvesting, machines are repeatedly filled and emptied, resulting in frequent changes in loading. The reinforced construction gives the tyres longer service lives.
HC3000 tyres are also very soil friendly as their large footprint lessens ground pressure, reducing compaction and improving ground protection.
HC3000 tyres can be purchased from our dealers in 5 sizes, which you can view on our website. The VF 1000/65R32 CFO 200A8 HC3000R TL is worth mentioning here, as it features an improved, rounded shoulder tread pattern (R – rounded). This design makes the tyre even more soil friendly. The rounded tread pattern minimizes soil damage during operation in a field or meadow, and in particular when turning. While the HC3000 is typically used on harvesters, the HC3000R tread pattern is suitable for special agricultural machinery designed for the application of liquid fertilizers.
So, if you are looking for high-quality reliable tyres with extra load capacity for your harvester or other harvesting machinery to provide high driving comfort and minimize soil damage, the HC3000 tyres are the right choice.
