Rapid 300-400C/S gets a facelift

This includes new tyres with greater lifespan and System Disc Aggressive. The new tyres have 50 percent longer lifespan. This together with greater contact area means less downtime and leaves a better structure in the soil surface.

“What is unique with the new tyres is the new pattern design, with higher lugs and a new high-performance tread compound.  The tyre also has a tubeless construction”, explained Fredrik Lundén”, Director of sales at Väderstad.
“The new pattern gives the tyre better self-cleaning capacity and has a lower impact on the structure of the surface soil.  The high-performance tread compound together with the new pattern gives better durability”, said Fredrik Lundén.

As an option for customers drilling in extreme conditions (flinty soil or sunflower stubble), Rapid RD 300-400S/C can be ordered with reinforced tyres called AramidPro, which have two extra layers of aramid cord. These AramidPro tyres reduce the down-time resulting from punctures.
