Sneak peek: 2014 National Farm Machinery Show

Farm Industry News editors hit the show floor early today, on the even of the 2014 National Farm Machinery Show, to get a look at what's new this year. As companies put the finishing touches on their booths, we snuck around the exhibit halls and dodged a number of forklifts busy bringing in the last of the products in order to bring you a glimpse at what you'll see if you're at this year's show. And if you can't make it, we'll be bringing you galleries and blogs all week while we're here so you don't miss a thing.

New farm tires offer better flotation, reduced compaction

Goodyear Farm Tires has launched a new category called Extreme Flotation. These new tires offer a number of advantages, including tighter turn radius, a smoother ride, reduced soil compaction and better flotation.

Two tires are being offered in the Extreme Flotation category — the Goodyear Super Terra Grip XT 1000/40R32 and the Goodyear DT930 1100/45R46. Low Sidewall (LSW) technology allows the tire to have better lateral stability on hillsides, and it also reduces road lope and power hop.

Cordless tool tech steps it up

Cordless tools have been stepping it up. Farmers are recognizing how convenient portable tools can be on the farm, and cordless tool technology has advanced in recent years to match the performance of some corded tools. In the past year alone, hundreds of new cordless tools have come to market from the big players: Milwaukee, DeWalt, Porter-Cable, Makita, Black and Decker, Hilti, Ryobi and others. So just what technology is fueling this new generation of cordless tools?
