LSW TIRES FOR COMBINES: MEET THE FARMERS WHO LOVE THEM
At harvest time, every minute counts. See how these farmers get more speed with less soil compaction when using LSW tires on their combines.
Michael Dady, Ag Specialist, Titan and Goodyear Farm Tires 1/17/2022
We love to hear from customers who have made the switch to LSW tires on their combines. The feedback is often the same — the tires
helped decrease impacts on the field, provide better operator comfort and help
farmers make more money.
Take a look at these top stories from across the country and hear firsthand
how tire technology can be a profit-building gamechanger.
Welker Farms transforms Case 8230 Into "Beastbine" with Goodyear Farm Tires
WELKER FARMS TRANSFORMS CASE 8230 INTO "BEASTBINE" WITH GOODYEAR LSW
Welker Farms in Shelby, Montana equipped their Case 8230 Combine with
LSW1400/30R46 fronts and LSW750/60R30 rears because they liked the idea
of keeping things simple, with one wide tire and wheel doing the job of
two. Increased tire flotation, faster roading speeds and improved ride
while navigating steep rocky terrain are just some of the benefits
Welker Farms enjoys about LSW tire technology. Get ready to meet the
John Deere 8520 Tractor and Case 8120 Combine Improve Traction and
Flotation with LSW tires
JOHN DEERE 8520 TRACTOR AND CASE 8120 COMBINE IMPROVE TRACTION AND
FLOTATION WITH LSW TIRES
Justin and Bud Price grow corn, soybeans and yellow peas — and the
farm machinery they use just gets larger and heavier every year.
That’s why they upgraded to LSW tires to get a significant gain in tire traction and flotation, a smoother
ride, less tire wear and decreased soil compaction. They upgraded their
John Deere 8520 tractor to LSW710/60R30 fronts and dual LSW800/55R46 rear
tires, and their CASE 8120 combine to dual LSW580/75R46 fronts and
LSW710/60R30 rear tires. Take a look.
Mississippi grower overcomes flotation issues and gets in the field
faster with LSW tires
MISSISSIPPI GROWER OVERCOMES FLOTATION ISSUES AND GETS IN THE FIELD
FASTER WITH LSW TIRES
In the hilly fields of Tupelo Mississippi, Scruggs Farm was battling tire
flotation and stability issues in the field, often sidelining them in wet
soil. Upgrading to LSW1100/45R46 rears and LSW1000/40R32 front tires was an
immediate game changer. Their LSW-equipped machines were able to float into
the fields leaving only a handprint where conventional tires were carving
out ruts 8 to 9 inches deep. It got them into the field days faster. See

LSW tires give Keller Brothers Harvesting and Trucking Inc. the smooth
ride they needed to get to the field fast and safely
LSW TIRES GIVE FARMERS THE SMOOTH RIDE THEY NEEDED TO GET TO THE FIELD
“If the carts and tractors keep getting bigger, can we haul
them?” That was the big question for Duane Keller and his team at
Keller Brothers Harvesting and Trucking Inc.
To use the ag equipment necessary for harvesting, roading was the best
solution compared to loading and hauling. Traveling from Texas to the
Canadian border and back, they needed tires that could get the job done
and get it done fast. That’s why they chose Goodyear LSW1000/40R32
fronts and LSW1100/45R46 rear tires. The shorter sidewall
reduced road lope significantly and gave them the smooth ride they needed to get to
the field fast and safely on their 4,500 mile journey. Check it out.

TR Reapers, a custom harvester out of Othello, Washington, harvests
more than 20,000 acres each year. They know every minute counts. See
the difference LSW tires are making to their bottom line, reducing
power hop and road lope and minimizing soil compaction.
LSW 1100/45R46 tires help out at Hamoline Farms in Aberdeen, Canada
HOW HAMOLINE FARMS TAKES CARE OF TIRE COMPACTION AND RUTS
family grows wheat, canola, oats and flax in Aberdeen, Canada. They were
experiencing too much compaction in wet soil with their old tires and

flotation, less soil compaction and improved ride quality. Take a look.
