A Smart Solution For Harvest Season Safety

October 12, 2023

As a company and brand, Doran puts safety at the heart of what we do. It’s core to our vision: To be a global leader in safety and maintenance monitoring technology. 

And with the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicating that the agricultural sector is still the most dangerous in America, we continue to focus on ways to help enhance agricultural equipment safety. 

That’s why we support farmers and ranchers during National Farm Safety and Health Week and all year round.

National Farm Safety and Health Week

The aptly timed National Farm Safety and Health Week was September 17-September 23, 2023. Just as harvest season kicks off is the perfect time to focus on farm safety and health. On September 18th, the focus was Equipment and Rural Roadway Safety. And with over 450 fatalities in the sector in 2021, equipment safety is still a chief concern in agriculture. 

Doran is committed to safety in the agricultural sector and has developed specific technology to combat the hazards that come with this critical industry. 

Agriculture Tire Pressure Monitoring

Agriculture equipment requires a very different set of standards than most trucking equipment, including lower tire pressures and different sensitivity to weather and terrain conditions. As a premier tire pressure monitoring manufacturer, Doran has specifically focused on and designed practical solutions to address these unique needs.

How Tire Pressure Monitoring Increases Harvest Yield and Profitability

There are various factors to consider, including the load, speed, soil type, and terrain. Agricultural tires are designed to work best at lower inflation pressures than normal tires. This helps to reduce soil compaction, increase traction, and improve ride comfort. 

However, the right tire pressure depends on the specific application and conditions. For instance, tire pressure may need to be increased for road transport or steep slopes, or decreased for field work or soft soils. As a result, farmers should adjust their tire pressure according to their needs.

Doran 360AG™ TPMS for Tractors and Implements

Doran 360AG™ TPMS helps farmers deal with difficult terrain and other conditions. It’s specifically designed for low-tire pressure environments to increase safety and minimize soil compaction. 

But it goes beyond the tractor. Our 360AG™ TPMS monitors, senses, and alerts you to changes in tire pressure and temperature on your tractor AND implements. It takes out the guesswork from the pulled implement’s tire condition and gives you real-time results. This means more efficient uptime, less maintenance, and better information – leading to improved yield and safety this harvest season.

Stay safe this harvest season without compromising yield and productivity. Invest in the easy-to-install Doran 360AG™ TPMS for your tractors and implements and enjoy the peace of mind that the harvest will come in smoothly. Maintaining proper tire inflation pressure helps farmers increase yield through minimized soil compaction, improve profitability with lower fuel consumption and perform field operations in less time resulting in improved efficiency.
