Michelin North America is expanding its Michelin SprayBib tire lineup with a new 50-inch model, the industry’s first VF sprayer tire offered in this larger size. 

The new Michelin VF420/95R50 177D SprayBib will share all the qualities of the current 46-inch SprayBib range in the new, larger dimension designed for bigger sprayers that carry heavier loads. It will be launched in the replacement market beginning in September 2014, and can be ordered now on the model year 2015 John Deere R4045 sprayer.

“The reputation of the current 46-inch SprayBib has created demand from farmers and co-ops as they move up to larger sized sprayers,” says James Crouch, farm segment marketing manager for Michelin North America. “Farmers want this tire because it is the first VF solution for the 50-inch sprayer tire.”

Crouch says the Michelin VF420/95R50 SprayBib has a D speed rating that will allow for speeds up to 40 mph at a maximum load of 16,094 pounds. The new model, he said, offers the same features and benefits of the 46-inch SprayBib, both with Michelin’s Ultraflex technology, including:

  • Capacity to carry the same load at up to a 40 percent reduction in air pressure compared to standard technology tires, or a greater load at the same pressure.
  • A reinforced Michelin Ultraflex casing for a longer service life.
  • Greater soil and crop protection, thanks to the lower air pressure resulting in up to a 16 percent larger footprint compared with tires using standard technology.
  • Excellent road handling and responsiveness, even at a lower pressure.
