STARCO launches HS Flotation

Nov 9, 2017 | Agricultural implements

New wheel and tyre solution for agricultural implements enables more efficiency in the field and agility on the road.

Wheels and tyres for agricultural implements are traditionally not designed for high speed use, but STARCO overthrew this premise by launching the innovative HS Flotation, a 17-inch solution for harrows, rollers, seed drills, trailers and other implements that allows upgrading existing implements, resulting in implements that work harder in the field and roll easy on the road at higher speed.

With STARCO HS Flotation, farmers will be able to accelerate up to 65 km/h on the road. This is possible due to a higher tyre pressure and the special tread design and construction of the radial tyres. Other benefits of the innovative solution are maximum stability – both in the field and on the road -, thanks to its unique radial construction, and a better self-cleaning conceded by an intelligent placement of the mud breakers in the tread bottom. Furthermore, a special-designed centreline pattern on the tyre, shoulder traction and combined flotation patter construction optimise rolling, while a flat profiled tyre with large footprint assures reduced ground pressure. The HS Flotation’s steel wheel is STARCO engineered, developed and manufactured, and treated with STARCO’s rust preventing e-coat technology, the latest automotive nanotechnology pre-treatment in the market.

The new wheel and tyre solution will be ready for the market when 2018-season starts and can be virtually experienced in a full-sized-virtual-version at Agritechnica, Europe’s largest agricultural fair, where the product will be officially launched on 12th November.
