MICHELIN ULTRAFLEX – Plus de traction pour moins de consommation de fuel (FR)


MICHELIN, in collaboration
with MASSEY FERGUSSON
presents: More traction for less fuel OPTIMIZE THE EFFICIENCY OF YOUR TRACTOR Thanks to MICHELIN Ultraflex Technologies! TRACTOR N°1
Fitted with standard MICHELIN AGRIBIB 20.8 R 38 rear tires Pressure in line with conditions of use (1.6 bars) TRACTOR N°2
fitted with MICHELIN XEOBIB VF 710 / 60 R 38 rear tires Pressure in line with conditions of use (0.8 bars) TRACTOR N°3
Fitted with standard MICHELIN AXIOBIB IF 900 / 60 R 42 rear tires SIMULATE A SOIL WORKING TOOL
AND PRODUCE TRACTIVE EFFORT A 100-meter plot
COVER THE SAME DISTANCE Sling fitted with a tractive effort sensor
GENERATE TRACTION Digital display panel (in daN)
DISPLAY THE TRACTIVE EFFORT Pipette kit filled with 90 cm of diesel fuel
MEASURE FUEL CONSUMPTION 1st RUN
(Tractor N°1 + tractor N°3) MICHELIN AGRIBIB
standard tires without MICHELIN Ultraflex Technology Pressure in line with conditions of use (1.6 bars) Run with maximum tractive effort – Results for Run n°1 –
Fuel remaining: 29 cm
Maximum tractive effort: 4,700 daN 2nd RUN
(Tractor N°2 + tractor N°3) MICHELIN XEOBIB
tires with MICHELIN Ultraflex Technology Pressure in line with conditions of use (0.8 bars) Run with greater tractive effort than for the 1st run – Results for Run n°2 –
Fuel remaining: 36 cm
Maximum tractive effort: 5,100 daN RESULTS Fuel remaining: 29 cm vs 36 cm
Maximum tractive effort : 4,700 daN vs 5,100daN Up to 8%* more traction capability
And up to 11%* saving on fuel, making a saving of €1,500 VAT incl.** *Observed on the MICHELIN XEOBIB range
on the same demonstration **Estimate on the basis of fuel consumption of 25l an hr
for a tractor used 500 hrs a year,
with diesel costing €1 a liter, VAT incl.. The 14 demonstrations made on September 4 and 5
at Ondes in front of the general public showed traction gains ranging from 6% to 11%
with a mean value of 7.5% and fuel savings ranging from 5% to 11%
with a mean value of 7%
