Tyre manufacturer Mitas has upgraded its tyre pressure app, adding new features.

It is designed to allow farmers to calculate and set the correct tyre pressure for agricultural equipment, depending on speed and loads during a range of operations, helping to increase machine productivity, reduce tyre wear and drive down costs.

Mitas suggests that maintaining accurate tyre pressures can reduce operational costs by over 20%, the result of better traction, less soil compaction, and reduced fuel consumption.

Mitas App users will also receive notifications with important information and updates so farm managers can stay on top of the latest news affecting their business, alongside helping to locate the nearest Mitas dealer.

The app, available in six languages - English, German, French, Italian, Spanish and Czech - is free for both Android and iOS devices, and can be downloaded free from the App Store or Google Play.
