During the day-to-day management of a farm the Running Cost of a tractor is a key factor. What do we mean with Running Cost? First of all when we analyze the Running Cost the tyres used are a key factor in defining the fuel cost of an agricultural machinery. The cost is represented by two important points:
When we talk about the Running Cost we mean a hourly cost: the life cycle of a tractor is measured through the hour counter so through the hours of effective use of the machinery. When we consider the Running Cost we also take into account the road use and we presume there is a correct use of the agricultural machinery by the driver.
As we can note from the definition of Running Cost the tyres represent a key factor in determining the total costs, and in addition to the tyre cost both the characteristics and management of the tyre itself influence the other factor, the fuel cost.
When considering this last point the key factors related to the tyre which we are going to analyze in the following posts are the following:
We must consider that even the tractor has specific technical characteristics as, for instance, the transmission mechanical gear: this influences the choice of a correct pairing between rear and front tyres. Even this aspect is going to be analyzed in the following posts. To summarize what has been said about the Running Cost we show you a scheme.
We conclude this post saying that it would be appropriate to organize a course for tractor drivers about the correct management of the Running Cost of agricultural machinery. Contact us for more information!
