Letting some air out of radial tires is an excellent way to improve performance and efficiency of your tractor and reduce soil compaction. Tire manufacturers reduced radial tire pressure recommendations in 1992. Current recommendations call for tire pressures as low as 6 pounds per square inch as long as the load- carrying capacity of the tire isn't exceeded. Previously, recommended tire pressure rates were 15 to 20 pounds per square inch. Lower pressures are possible because radial tire construction provides greater strength and flexibility than bias ply tires. When radials first came out, we didn't really know their capabilities so we just recommended the same tire pressures as bias ply tires. With more research, tire manufacturers were able to reduce the tire pressure. The research shows that correctly adjusted tire pressure can reduce tire slippage by as much as 20 percent. Reducing tire pressure distributes the weight of the tractor over more soil area due to tire flexing. Also, lower tire pressure reduces soil compaction as the pressure in the tire is very closely related to the force on the soil surface. If a producer has a soil compaction problem, lower tire pressure can reduce the effect. More tire contact with the soil means better traction and that means more work done by the farmer in the same amount of time. Reduced slippage can extend tire life and reduce fuel consumption. Reducing the pressure also can prevent "tractor hop," the chattering motion that makes tractors act like bucking broncos. Whbn a tractor is pulling hard, tires tend to break loose from the soil and then improved pressure will Hofman fluid to no more one-third of the tire reduces the flexing amounts are have to replace the adding cast iron weJ Tire slippage to 12 percent measured in the field good load behind the tire pressure know how much carrying.
