Consulting of RÄDERAKADEMIE® Grasdorf

Benefit from our knowledge and experience of producing wheels for more than 30 years

Training objectives

The participants of our training courses will get extensive information with regard to the optimum choice of wheels and tyres. Based on these guidelines we will show you how to optimize the machine capacity by simple means, to gently cultivate the soil and to reduce operating costs significantly.

Target groups

  • Staff of manufacturers and dealers (sales people, drivers for demonstration purposes and in workshops)
  • Customers and operators (farmers, subcontractors)
  • Learners, students, trainees and other junior staff members
  • Teaching and skilled personnel, consultants (academies, private and public institutions)
