QUINCY, Ill.—Titan International Inc. has added an R-1W drive tire to its portfolio, the AgraEdge, that's designed for tractors, combines and grain carts.
The tire is available in 17 of what Titan calls the "most popular" sizes for front and rear crop-mechanical front-wheel drive tractors, with more sizes being introduced throughout the year for four-wheel-drive ag equipment.
Scott Sloan, ag product manager at Titan, said the AgraEDGE features "the best elements of our existing lines and incorporated the newest design innovations to create a high-performing, modern-looking, cost-competitive tire.
"We're proud to have developed and to produce these tires right here in America to support our North American farmers. We believe buying American is something every U.S. farmer can stand behind, and it's something that sets Titan—and the AgraEdge—apart from many in the industry."
The AgraEdge has a modern design and features improved compounding, state-of-the art construction techniques and modern lug angle for optimum self-cleaning and traction, Titan said.
The new construction in the sidewall and lug angle provides roading capability, according to Titan, and the tire's footprint shape allows for minimal soil compaction.
The AgraEdge comes with Titan's recently expanded radial warranty, which includes:
- 8-year coverage for workmanship and material with prorated refund based on years in service and percentage wear. This includes a 2-year no-cost replacement (service not included) versus the previous policy's 1-year no-cost replacement;
- 1-year field hazard protection plan offers prorated refund for select cases of field hazard damage; and
- 2-year stubble damage protection plan covers all Titan radials.
The 17 sizes range from 380/85R28 up to 520/85R42, with the company planning to expand the line to 44 sizes with additional row crop through flotation sizes released in phases throughout 2021.
