Boosting Yields, Efficiency & Tire Life with the Push of a Button

It’s more important than ever to inflate tires based on operating conditions. Central tire inflation systems (CTIS) make on-to-go adjustments not only possible but profitable as well.
With the adoption of Increased Flexion (IF) and Very High Flexion (VF) radial tires becoming more widespread, farmers are now able to set up equipment to carry greater loads at lower inflation pressures than in the past.
