“No Flat” Tires For Center Pivots
“It’s the last tire you will need to buy,” says Sahil Sharma, product manager for Zimmatic. “The track is replaceable.”
Introduced in 2019, NFTrax was designed to save irrigators time fixing flat tires and dealing with deep ruts created by tires during high run times.
“It’s a heavy-duty tire supported with steel bars,” Sharma says of the track’s design. “Every pressure point falls between two lugs that boost floatation.”
Field tests showed that wheel track depth is 30 to 50 percent less than standard 11.2 x 38-in. tires in similar conditions. In addition to the standard model, the optional NFTrax Z-Tread features a more aggressive tread for slopes, low spots and heavy soils.
NFTrax comes with a 5-year warranty and is designed to fit Zimmatic irrigation systems as well as a few other systems. Videos and more information are available on the website.
