MICHELIN Cargo XBib High Flotation We spread across the 360 hectares
no matter what the weather. We go out whenever we can. It’s a good all-round solution tyre, for going out on the road and onto the land. A good tyre is one
that doesn’t leave marks in the fields and stays very stable on slopes. We went from 3kg to 2.4kg. The pressure is even lower, so it compacts the ground
less than older models. I find it to be a good tyre. The advantage of this tyre compared to the old tyre is that it sinks into the soil less. A good tyre is one that doesn’t pull and doesn’t compact the soil. The pressure is lower now,
since we’re down to 2.3 bars. We were lucky enough to be able to use a machine from a competing brand, equipped with a different brand of tyres. The other brand really dug into the dirt,
so we got bogged down. A lot of people were surprised
when we went through the grain. It doesn’t compact and damage the soil. It stays on top in damp fields. Cleaning off the mud is not bad either; we get a lot less dirt on the roads now. This is because we manage to clean off
the majority of the soil inside the field, before going out onto the road. Self-cleaning them takes about 50m. That’s a lot less than for the old Cargo,
which took 150m – a real weak point. So we manage to do jobs
without needing to clean the roads. We’ve had them for about 9 months; we’ve done just over 3,000 km with them and they’re still perfect. We’ve done about 9,000 km and so far they wear really well. The tyre handles well on the road, it bounces less than the old ones. When we starting using Cargo,
we gained an extra 1 kph on the road, so that’s quite significant. We always have the same load and make the same trip, so we can’t cheat. The big difference is mainly the road handling. I have a steering axle
and a trailing axle at the back, before, I had to lock the axles on the road. Now my axles are free.
