New Michelin XM108

The original XM108 was noted for its excellent driving capabilities and pound-stretching efficiency and was awarded the 1994 RASE Silver Medal in recognition of its contribution to farming. The new Michelin XM108, just launched, is even better.

The new XM108s flexible radial construction reduces ground pressure by at least 20% compared to a standard tyre. A 20% bigger footprint offers excellent traction in all field conditions and brings increased productivity and lower fuel consumption.

The parallel lug profile means that as the tyre wears, it retains its tractive ability for longer, offering excellent value and performance throughout the tyres life.

THE Michelin Agribib is a standard profile tubeless radial tyre designed for all-round use on medium- to high-horsepower tractors.

The Agribib has a wide, flat tread area for improved grip and traction. This large footprint, combined with an optimised tread pattern with deep parallel lugs, gives 5% more grip than comparable tyres and retains its grip throughout the life of the tyre.

This increased ground contact patch also spreads the load over a larger area, which reduces compaction and therefore soil damage. A raised step between the lugs produces a self-cleaning action, which ensures continuous traction in wet, sticky conditions.

The flexible radical casing of the Agribib acts like a suspension, protecting driver and tractor on rough ground, increasing productivity and reducing machine damage. Reinforced shoulders, flat crown area, and improved rubber compounds reduce wear and damage both on and off road, which all adds up to a tyre that offers the farmer excellent value for money.

What percentage increase in grip does the Michelin Agribib give compared to comparable tyres?

THERE cant be anyone in Britain who doesnt know that Michelin produces tyres. Or indeed a farmer in the land who isnt aware that Michelin is one of the worlds biggest suppliers of agricultural tyres.

But over the next five weeks were going to tell you a bit more about the firm and its farming tyres. If you can use that knowledge to answer five simple questions you could win a Mitsubishi Shogun Sport 2.5TD GLX off-roader.

This week were looking at the history of Bibendum – the Michelin man – who has been the symbol of the French tyre maker for more than a century and is one of the best known trademarks in the world.

Bib (as hes known to insiders) was the brainchild of Edouard and Andre Michelin, the two brothers who founded Michelin in 1890. And, like many enduring icons, he came about almost by chance.

While musing over a stack of tyres at an 1898 exhibition in France, Edouard remarked to his brother that, if the tyres had arms, they would resemble a man. Andre agreed and shortly after commissioned an artist to prepare sketches based on Edouards idea.

One of the artists drawings showed the tyre figure as a rotund beer drinker who, raising his glass in a toast, declared "Nunc est bibendum" (Now is the time to drink). The phrase was close enough in spirit to the slogan the company was using at the time – Michelin tyres swallow obstacles – and became one of the ones that was used. The beer bottle was replaced with a champagne glass and Bib raised a goblet overflowing with nails and broken glass in a toast to all road hazards.

Bibendum was officially christened after a famous racing driver of the era, while preparing for the 1898 Paris-to-Amsterdam motor race, saw Andre Michelin go by and shouted: "Hey, there goes Bibendum!"

Since then Bib has become known across the world for his firm grip on the ground and his large and rugged footprint.
