Australian Leaders in Press Wheel and Walking Wheel Assemblies
With 30+ years of manufacturing press wheels for International and Domestic markets, Manutec has hit the right balance between cost, performance, strength and maintenance.
Manutec does not adopt a one-size-fits-all ideology. Instead, we deliver customised solutions based on your unique set of conditions.
Manutec not only takes the time to match press wheel tyres to the farm but, match the tyre to the type of machine, the season, the soil types and the crop/s being grown. Through this thorough understanding of your farm, machinery and seeding practices, we can offer best-fit solutions that will ensure improved equipment performance and crop productivity.
Manutec Press Wheel Innovations
Here are some of our press wheel innovations that have improved farming for Australian conditions.
Delays in Seeding
Clay sealing over tyres forming an impervious layer for the seed to grow through.
Manutec developed a low pressure, high flex tyre.
Tyres now extensively used by farmers within the region.
Extremely Sticky Rolls
Sticky soil preventing seeding
Within 24 hours Manutec sent 3 tyres options to the farmer to test. By the next business day, a complete set of tyres was shipped.
Clogged with mud
Mud clearance too low, clogging press wheel
Developed press wheel tyres that could be fitted to existing rims. Used rubber compound on rims to improve flex.
Improved mud clearance by 200%. Rubber compound allowed for self -cleaning without scraping.
Tyres wearing out quickly
Fitted tyres wear out too quickly.
Within 2 months Manutec re-engineered a new tyre, that could be fitted onto the existing rim.
Re-engineered tyres for the Bourgault and John Deere Air Hoe Drill in both 3” and 4” widths.
