COMMERCIAL & AGRICULTURAL BATTERIES
At Central Tyre, our Commercial & Agricultural centres stock a range of batteries for a wide variety of commercial and agricultural vehicles including HGVs, heavy plant and cranes.
To remain cost efficient, fleet downtime must be kept to a minimum, whilst productivity needs to be increased. This makes reliability, durability and premium performance paramount for all commercial and agricultural vehicles.
TRUCKS & HGVS
HGVs, trucks & delivery vehicles place different strains on the vehicle battery depending on their usage. HGVs for example are commonly employed for long distance journeys during which in-cab electrical equipment is used regularly. Delivery vehicles on the other hand will be used for shorter, multiple-stop journeys, often requiring the regular use of a tail lift application. Therefore, it is essential that the correct battery is fitted in the right vehicle in order to provide the most efficient power source.
AGRICULTURAL, HEAVY PLANT & CONSTRUCTION VEHICLES
These vehicles often face extreme terrain and lengthy daily use, therefore, operating conditions often demand more from the battery. A reliable starter battery is necessary and fleet downtime is not acceptable. The battery utilised must be durable, reliable and resistant to vibration with maximum starting power. Each battery has been tested to the latest EN standards and rated accordingly. The higher the ‘V’ rating the higher the resistance to vibration; this results in increased safety as a result of reduced internal short circuits.
