What are thew best? I'm happy to pay a premium for long lasting tyres, but what o ultimately need is side walls/wheel rim protection. We always have problems with people catching the rims on cubible heelstone etc. any recemendarions on brands. using Camso atm.
 
These are the ones. They do seem to protect the rim better than other brands I've tried.

Longest lasting that I've had are bkt wide walls. Neighbour swears nothing lasts longer than galaxy beefy babies that came on new case skids but hard to get hold of

@Cowabunga is the go to guy for skiddy tyre experience.
As it happens just yesterday was skid steer loader service day. Changed the engine oil and filters and greased both units. Hardly need to think about tyres these days, since starting to use Kenda Rock Grip tyres. They last between three and four times as long as most other brands. I used to wear a set out on each skiddy annually, so eight new tyres a year. They still get exactly the same work annually but tyres last between three and four years. They cost maybe 25% more than most other brands but they are worth it. My tyre man was fed up changing skiddy tyres so regularly so put me on these and we are both happy bunnies as a result.
As for sidewall damage, these are as good as any but there are two important points here. First is to make sure they are always pumped up to maximum pressure which is just over 50psi. Secondly, eliminate those sharp edges which cause sidewall and rim damage. Round off all sharp corners or edges on heelstones and elsewhere so that the tyre slides off them, once and for all and enjoy more spending money and less downtime.

Update on the Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot

In July, we opened the applications window for farmers to join our Sustainable Farming Incentive pilot.

The Sustainable Farming Incentive is 1 of the 3 new environmental land management schemes. It sits alongside the future Local Nature Recovery and Landscape Recovery schemes.

Through the Sustainable Farming Incentive, farmers will be paid for environmentally sustainable actions – ones that are simple to do and do not require previous agri-environment scheme experience.

We are piloting the scheme to...
