Bridgestone’s premium agricultural tyre offering has been made even more appealing to farmers and contractors, after the company doubled the period of warranty cover on its extensive range of AG radial drive products to 10 years.

For the first time, products such as the VX-TRACTOR and the VT-TRACTOR will be accompanied by the extended cover, while Bridgestone will change the starting point of its cover, too.

Previously, it was from the date of manufacture and for five years, but this has now been altered to begin from the date the farmer purchases the tyre, meaning that the farmer will benefit for the full 10 years of ownership.

Bridgestone’s Technical Manager Gary Powell said: “We are delighted to offer the new extended warranty to our farmers. From our dashboard data, we have clearly seen a continuing improvement to the reliability of our products operating in the farming environment. This has been made possible by advances in production technology and new design features.

“We are more than comfortable to double the length of warranty cover, which clearly is a powerful indicator of our confidence, in our products’ reliability. And all this is at no extra cost to the farmer.”

Bridgestone tyres are available and fully supported in the field by their UK network of Bridgestone AG Dealer Partners, who boast a wealth of experience in the upper premium / high performance agricultural tyre sector.
