Before I start building or adapting a machine, I turn to Practical Farm Ideas. I don't know how many times I have flicked though my copies!

 STOP PRESS - Tractor tyre inflation

Michelin tyre expert David Purdey calls for Central Tyre Inflation as Deere option*

In a wide appraisal of tractors by Bedfordia Farms on their 2425ha, their new Deere 6250Rs  are fitted with the latest Michelin 650/85R38  and  600/70R30 AxioBib with VF technology which can operate at 40% less pressure or carry a 40% increased load at similar pressure.  
Although 9psi is suitable for transport too, Michelin suggests inflation pressures up to 6psi higher for intensive road use can optimise ride quality and improve wear characteristics. “Short journeys are fine but for longer periods and higher speeds, operation at 15psi improves ride quality and the tractors feel more stable,” says arable manager J J Ibbett. 
“We would like to see central tyre inflation added to the John Deere options list for even better results from these tractors and tyres.”

* the new issue includes a 'Made it Myself' Central Tyre Inflation system built for €485 in all new parts.
