Collaboration with Valtra: Continental Acquires First OE Customer for New Radial Tractor Tire

Valtra A Series available with Continental tires


Continental and agricultural machinery manufacturer Valtra are going to be working together in the future. The A Series from the Finnish subsidiary of AGCO will be available with the Tractor70 and Tractor85 tires from October. Dealers and end customers can order the Continental tires as an option for the compact and orchard tractors. Already now, the tires are available from Valtra Unlimited Studio. The OE approval follows joint field testing by the two manufacturers. “For our Nordic customers safety, productivity and comfort on snow-covered and icy ground are critical factors in making a purchase. Furthermore, our European customers are always looking for new and advanced solutions. This fits exactly with the new range of Continental tires which provide good on-road driving comfort as well as high traction in the field due to reduced tire pressure”, comments Marko Ojalehto, Product Marketing Specialist at Valtra.

HAMM – More than 35 years of oscillation: Tried and tested solutions for asphalt construction and earthwork

Oscillation drums vibrate but do not lift off the ground. In comparison to vibrating drums, with oscillation drums only around 15% of the vibration is directed into the substrate around the roller. This means that oscillation rollers can even be used without problems for dynamic compaction on bridges or in the vicinity of vibration-sensitive structures.

Over 35 years ago, HAMM became the first roller manufacturer to offer an oscillation drum for tandem rollers. These rollers have now become an integral part of the product programme. In the past five years alone, the specialists for compaction technology delivered more than 3,000 machines with this particular technology. Today, one in four of the tandem rollers leaving the Tirschenreuth factory is equipped with an oscillation drum. One reason for this is the large variety of models, because with more than 35 models, HAMM has by far the widest offering of oscillation rollers in the world. Moreover, only HAMM builds oscillation tandem rollers in the compact class as well as compactors for earthwork with oscillation compaction capability. And last but not least, the HAMM programme includes oscillation rollers for every market. Read more >>

TCM 180i: The exquisite technician

Dual-layer wet-in-wet concrete paving: BT Beton-Technik used cutting-edge paving technology to build 14.5m-wide dual-layer concrete pavements precisely, economically and quickly – while reliably meeting the client's tight schedule.

When placing dual-layer concrete on the A7, the Wirtgen paving train – comprising 2 SP 1500 slipform pavers and the TCM 180i texture curing machine – is the key player.

The A7 is being widened between Hamburg and Bordesholm from four lanes to six, and in some places to eight, to ensure that the motorway remains an efficient traffic artery. Aiming to create a pavement which would offer a high degree of driving comfort while withstanding the loads of heavy-goods traffic, the motorway consortium Via Solutions Nord and the joint venture ARGE A7 Hamburg-Bordesholm opted for steel reinforced concrete paving with an exposed aggregate concrete surface when widening the 60km stretch located in the Schleswig-Holstein region. BT Beton-Technik GmbH, commissioned with the job, have been specialized in concrete pavement construction for many years. Managing Director Mirko Pokrajcic has been relying on technologies and machines from Wirtgen for just as long: "I insist on 100% quality – and this is precisely what Wirtgen have been delivering for over 25 years."

The new Holder S series: More powerful and flexible than ever before

Holder S130

  • Max Holder GmbH presents new model series in the 100 HP class

  • The new Holder S series comprises the models S 100 (100 HP), S 115 (115 HP) and S 130 (130 HP) and is designed for applications in which the demands on man and machine are enormously high.

The unprecedented engine power combined with the mechanical front PTO and up to 120 litre hydraulic power make the Holder S series the most powerful articulated tractor on the market. Highly effective working hydraulics with three separate hydraulic attachment drives and two proportional functions that can be operated simultaneously ensure possible maximum power and flexibility on the attachment. Perfect work results are also guaranteed thanks to the three-dimensional front lift, the hydraulic weight compensation and the electronic load limit control. Thanks to the low speed and the larger torque range, the fuel consumption as well as the vibrations and noise level are reduced considerably. Read more >>
