AGCO selects Vredestein VF Traxion Optimall for its new Fendt Vario 700 Gen7 tractors
Apollo Tyres’ Vredestein VF Traxion Optimall has been chosen by leading agricultural manufacturer AGCO as original equipment (OE) for its new range of Fendt 700 Gen7 tractors. The Fendt Vario 720, 722, 724, 726 and 728 tractors can be ordered, effective immediately, with the popular combination VF 710/70 R 42 & VF 600/70 R 30 Traxion Optimall. Additional sizes will be offered in the near future, fulfilling growing customer demand for Vredestein Traxion tyres on Fendt tractors.
Guido Boerkamp, Director Off-Highway Tyres Europe at Apollo Tyres, said: “Our latest OE deal with AGCO follows excellent feedback we have received from farmers and agricultural contractors who appreciate the VF Traxion Optimal range of qualities; most notably its soil preservation and traction in the field, as well as its long lifespan and excellent comfort levels on the road.”
The Vredestein Traxion features a characteristic curved lug shape with more rubber in the middle of the profile to ensure optimal comfort and high wear resistance. Towards the shoulders of the tyre, the lugs diverge to provide additional traction and excellent self-cleaning capabilities in the field. The application of Vredestein’s unique F+ technology for its VF(Very High Flexion) tyres ensures that even during heavy traction work, the tyres can be operated at low pressure.
With the continuous development and extension of the VF tyre range, the Vredestein brand now offers 27 tyre sizes, for the entire tractor range between 100 and 450 HP. Over the coming years, Apollo Tyres will continue to strengthen its partnership with Fendt, supporting its expanding range of tractors.
