NZ made Dual Wheels for best results in NZ conditions

25 March, 2015

When it comes to working tractors on hill slopes and rugged terrain, the best option is Dual Wheels for the combination of extra flotation, traction and stability to get you places safely and with minimal soil damage.

Snaplok Dual Wheel Systems, by TRS Tyre & Wheel, have proven effective in increasing productivity on New Zealand farms for many years. The addition of Dual Wheels to a tractor significantly reduces the ground pressure in damp or spongy conditions due to a larger footprint. The result provides less ground compaction and reduced damage to crop and pasture yields. With many new tractors fitted with wide high volume tyres, Snaplok allows farmers to enjoy the benefits offered by Dual Wheels while retaining the wide inner tyre and minimising the increase in tractor width caused by fitting Dual Wheels.

With added rubber on the ground, increased tractor width and extra lugs to “bite” into the earth, the point at which the tractor will over balance in increased - improving operational safety and stability. The addition of an extra set of lugs also assists in reducing lateral slippage. Certain ground conditions or the utilisation of large cultivation equipment can mean more traction is required. The extra lugs provided by Duals ensure the tractor power is more effectively transmitted to the ground.

“Farmers can be confident when selecting Snaplok Dual Wheel Systems with 25 years of successfully operating in New Zealand conditions.” said TRS Marketing Manager, Andrew Gillam.  “Commonly enquiries for Dual Wheels peak at the start of Autumn and Spring as farmers prepare for the busy season ahead,” he continued.

Snaplok Dual Wheel Systems offer a quick release clamp ideal for farmers wanting the convenience of removing and fitting their duals regularly.  Cobra duals are an alternative option primarily designed for the farmer who doesn’t need to take his duals off or put them on frequently.
