Venieri 13.68B | Alliance 375 AgriStar
In Iowa — the nation’s top-producing state of both corn and soybeans — ag is big business, and so is ag equipment. When Ranko Equipment out of Dallas County, Iowa, contacted CFI about specialty tires for clearing and working patches of soft soil on hilly terrain, we came back with a solution that checked four boxes at once.
After using his new machine, a Venieri Model 13.68B, the owner came back to Ranko reporting a variety of issues with the existing 20.5R25 OTR tires: excessive compaction, low flotation, low traction and frightening stability issues on the rolling property. CFI answered by pairing the Venieri with extra-large Alliance 1000/50R25s on the front and rear, plus custom wheels to hold it all together. The result was a heavy machine that practically floated on top of the soil and kept the driver from fearing a disastrous rollover event.
From taming fields to climbing hills, CFI has wheels, tires and tracks for all terrain types and uses. Working with Ranko Equipment to keep their customer satisfied was a great exercise in providing custom solutions, and as this customer’s needs evolve, we’ll be right here to see them through.
