Galileo Wheel, developer of next generation farming and construction equipment, is due to launch the new Galileo AgriCup tire this spring. Comprised of the latest in tire technology, the AgriCup combines the benefits of rubber tracks and radial tires for large tractors and combines, offering greater flexibility and promoting better soil health.
The Galileo Wheel tire’s unique V-shape geometry provides a built-in mechanism against sidewall punctures. Unlike the thin and flexible sidewalls of a conventional tire, the Galileo AgriCup tire’s flexibility allows the tire to bulge inward, significantly reducing the risk of puncture. This, combined with the run flat capability, means there’s no chance of work being held up.
The Galileo AgriCup makes soil a priority. With its larger footprint, the AgriCup offers better traction and accuracy while minimizing ground pressure. This directly reduces soil compaction, increasing nutrient availability and boosting yields.
“The AgriCup represents a new performance benchmark for large tractors and combines,” said Avishay Novoplanski, CupWheel inventor and Chief Technology Officer at Galileo Wheel. “Advanced technology means we can now offer a tire that makes work easier and more profitable — without needing to be at the mercy of poor weather conditions.”
The "accordion shape" of Galileo AgriCup tires fit seamlessly over standard tire rims, with no need to modify or adjust any aspect of your existing machinery.
“Galileo has created a lot of excitement due to our focus on user experience and pushing the limits of tire technology,” added Rami Einav, Marketing & Sales Director at Galileo Wheel. “The AgriCup delivers on all fronts. This is a significant step forward, allowing large tractors and combines to promote better soil protection and deliver higher yields, all in more comfort and with increased durability.”
For large tractor and combine operators who want to achieve more profitable yields and drive better soil management, the Galileo AgriCup Tire delivers, without needing to change your existing machinery setup.
