Two Field tests were performed in Australia for the Alliance 382 radial tyre series. In both, the Alliance 382 Radial tyres were mounted on trucks operating in sugar cane fields.


TEST 1. Gary Stockham is an Australian farmer in the Burdekin area, near Ayr, that has the first set of Alliance 382 (size 600/50R22.5) as test tyres fitted to a UD haul truck in the sugar cane area. The cane season has just started and this is one of the first experience Alliance has held for the new 382 series tyres in the field.

Gary has got four similar Volvo trucks. One of them was fitted with the new set of 382 radial tyres while the others were fitted with: a set of older Alliance 328 diagonal tyres, 445/65R22.5 Mich truck tyres, and a set of Alliance 390 flotation radials.

From the very first days of the test, Gary, as well as the driver, were very happy with the performance of the new 382 radial tyres. At the same time the Mich truck tyres currently fitted on an other truck often got bogged in the mud and had to be pulled out.

The Alliance 382 radial tyres were inflated at 60 psi and did a great job! They were performing very well in the mudd, just as flotation tyres.

TEST 2. Steve Wagoora has a farms in Proserpine, north east Australia. As part of the field test, Mr. Wagoora got the second set of test tyres fitted to a similar truck as Gary's. He has been working for a few weeks now and very satisfied with the performance of the new series. Steve has adjusted the pressure to 50 psi. The trucks carry 2 bins of approximately 6 tons each and hardly ever get to 90 km/h. No long distances, drop of areas are between 2 and 10 km away.
