Warranty on tyres

Some tyre dealers Will look after you if you’ve got an issue, And the manufacturer will keep the warranty quiet ,as normally they carry a three year warranty in the UK .But they will try every excuse under the Sun to get out of it. Just come across some farming papers I brought back from Australia in March 2020 . Tyre companies warranties exceed UK standards by a long way.

I had a set of mitas on a merlo that were delaminating badly got my dealer to come have a look and mitas gave us £400 when the tyres were changed by the dealer and they were about 7 years old and only had 20% tops left on them I had raised the issue with mitas a coupe of years before and was told just see how they go and get them looked at nearer the time of changing them.

Iv got mitas on my case look exactly the same as the contis I had on the previous tractor apart from the name. I hope they are ok, the contis I had actually were ok
They are the same, Mitas had to stop using the name Continental when continental decided to come back to tractor tyres after selling out to Mitas years ago.

I think you should be ok the sets I saw must be 10 years old now at least so I think they will have sorted it come to think of it I bet there 15+

Had a set of worn Michelin leaking air, then tuned them, but cracks would pinch tubes.
They were 6 years old and 15% maybe so it was sort of expected.

Is warranty related to purchase price?
Heard of issues with cheaper brands having issues and not gripping at below 40% tread. Not interested at all in any help

They all split.

We had some Trelleborgs split at 5yr old, about 40% worn. They gave us 60% off a new set. Can’t say fairer than that.

When we had tread peeling off Alliance at a year old they didn’t want to know. So we’ve never had another Alliance on the place.

Well tbh

CEAT 7 year warranty
Michelin/Kleber never seen many issues and if they do have a problem the rep sorts it
Those CEAT are cracking have them on mine in work after the agribibs split around 4 k hours with plenty of tread left ? the ride much nicer and are far more quieter than the Michelin’s too

I've never heard of Ceat tyres
Are they what you would class as a premium or budget tyre?
 

Rejuvenating swards: Which option is best?

Written by Brian McDonnell

Maintaining grass quality during mid-season grazing is important. Farmers can maintain quality by entering ideal grazing covers of 1,300 – 1,500kg DM/ha, and grazing down to a residual of 4cm every rotation.

If you are now in a situation where cows are not cleaning out paddocks as well as they should be, leading to the development of steamy grass within the sward, here are some options.

Common options for rejuvenating swards include:

  1. Take a silage cut, probably into bales, remove the material and start again with the aftermath...
