The innovative BKT tire, created to improve the performance of high-powered tractors, will soon be available in 22 different sizes.
All the new sizes are equipped with VF technology.
The range of BKT’s lead product, AGRIMAX V-FLECTO, is expanding. A new size is already available and further three are being developed and will soon join the 18 which already exist. The new size is VF 710/70 R 42 which will soon be followed by VF 750/70 R 44, VF 710/75 R 38 and VF 710/55 R 38.
The objectives of new agriculture are ambitious: working better and sustainably, saving time and resources, optimizing. Machinery and tires must make a significant contribution to improving results, from every perspective. For this reason, BKT developed AGRIMAX V-FLECTO which meets all these needs, improving tractor performance on every type of terrain. It is a revolutionary tire which brings together in a single product a range of “combined” solutions to optimize the work and performance of high-powered tractors.
First of all, this tire makes it possible to maximize loads without changing tire pressure, regardless of speed, managing to carry 40% more weight than a standard tire of the same size and with the same recommended rim. At the same time soil compaction is reduced thanks to a wider footprint area and a 10% wider tread.
The great strength is then durability which is 10% longer than the standard equivalent, a characteristic which means a benefit in terms of productivity and optimization of farm work.
The ultra-resistant casing and the special strengthened bead allow AGRIMAX V-FLECTO to exploit all the tractor’s potential both in the field and on the road, where it can also reach high speeds.
It is the first BKT tire which makes use of NRO (Narrow Rim Option) Technology, conforming to the standards recorded by the European Tire and Rim Technology Organization (ETRTO). This marking makes it possible to use standard rims and not dedicated rims which are instead needed for VF tires of the same size.
Thanks to all these winning characteristics united in a single solution, AGRIMAX V-FLECTO has quickly become one of BKT’s most successful products, to the extent that the company has increased the range of sizes available. Launched in 2017, initially in the size VF 710/60 R 42, this tire has been meeting the most demanding performance needs. For this reason AGRIMAX V-FLECTO sees its success increasing more and more in only three years, to the extent of being now available in 22 sizes.
The right tire at the right time is a sustainable choice because it makes it possible to save on time, consumption and resources. This is why BKT Research never stops and continues to expand an already rich catalogue of over 2,700 products.
