World Record in Manure Spreading – Alliance Tires A380 ensure optimal traction and performance

2014.12.05.

In early August 2014, the first world record in manure spreading was set in the Ukraine and immediately entered into the Guinness Book of World Records / ATG supported the joint event of Brochard Constructeur and New Holland with A380.

Twenty-four hours, 4,217 tons of manure, and 221.8 hectares covered – these are the key figures of the world record in manure spreading set on a dairy farm near Chernigov in the Ukraine at the beginning of August.

The world record was achieved in a joint effort by Brochard Constructeur, a French manufacturer of large area spreaders, and the tractor manufacturer New Holland.

A Brochard spreader with a capacity of 50 tons was used, although it was loaded with a wheel load of 65 tons for the world record. The spreader was pulled and powered by a New Holland T9.615 tractor. Alliance Tire Group supported the effort by supplying the team with A380 tires for the Brochard spreader.

The A380 is the first radial tire for dumpers and small loaders, developed to carry heavy loads on tough terrain. A special non-directional tread pattern equally ensures traction and steering capabilities in forward and backward driving operations. In addition, the tire ensures excellent machine stability, a comfortable ride and good machine mobility, more efficient self-cleaning and traction as well as better overall performance on the road. The unique sidewall construction enables high lateral machine stability and tilt characteristics, while steel breakers efficiently prevent punctures and ensure uniform ground pressure distribution.
