Growers across North America can’t seem to stop buzzing about Zimmatic’s NFTrax airless wheel assembly – and for good reason. With an innovative, one-of-a kind design for maximized performance, it’s inarguably one of the most revolutionary systems on the market today.
NFTrax Recognized for its Innovative Design by ASABE
Zimmatic’s NFTrax airless wheel assembly recently earned an AE50 award presented by The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) after it was deemed one of the year’s most innovative designs in engineering products or systems for the food and agriculture industries. Each year, companies from around the world submit entries to the annual AE50 competition and 50 products are recognized that ASABE believes will best advance engineering for the food and agriculture industries. Look for NFTrax and other AE50 award recipients in the January/February 2015 issue of ASABE’s magazine, Resource: Engineering & Technology for a Sustainable World.
So, what makes the NFTrax so great? Here are four reasons why today’s busy growers simply shouldn’t go without it:
1. It’s a superior design unlike any other
NFTrax’s airless wheel design will never go flat. That’s right, never. Not only does it provide unbelievable traction and performance, it improves wheel tracking and saves you time.
2. The last thing you need is downtime
The open, airless design and heavy-duty belt of NFTrax makes puncturing and wearing of the tires a thing of the past. It attracts less soil buildup than standard pneumatic tires and has the flexibility to roll over obstacles. This means less downtime and greater efficiency for growers.
3. It won’t stop you in your tracks
No matter what kind of soil you are working with, NFTrax’s unique design enables it to continue rolling without bogging down. With its horizontal tread and high/low pressure soil interaction, growers can expect less erosion and faster track drying time.
4. Because you’re in a rut
Deep pivot wheel tracks as a result of standard tires or hard plastic airless alternative tires are a common problem for many growers. The ability to make pivot circles smoothly without getting stuck in deep wheel ruts is key. Extensive field testing has shown that NFTrax’s wheel track depth can be 30 to 50 percent less than standard tires or hard plastic airless alternative tires. And shallow pivot wheel tracks mean less time repairing fields and less wear-and-tear on all types of farm equipment.
