**POSTPONED** Tyres and compaction: Cheshire

Past Event - booking closed

Tue, 05 November 2019

High Legh Village Hall, High Legh, Knutsford, Cheshire East

WA16 6LR


**POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE**

An in-depth look at wheels, loads, tyre pressures, tyre selection, variable pressure and compaction, along with a practical demonstration of the importance of tyre pressures using a weigh cell.

While hugely important for all cultivations where running low pressures can help minimise compaction, it is important that pressures are set for the weight and speed of the vehicle.  Understanding ‘how low you can go’?  Will have an impact on sprayers and other machines running in a bed system and helping to preserve the life of the tyre.
