On September 6, 2018, when Escorts presented its Automated Concept Tractor at a grand event in New Delhi, attended by thousands of viewers, BKT was equally proud to announce that the new tractor range was fitted exclusively with its advanced radial Agrimax tires.
Among others, part of this specific line for tractors is the company’s AGRIMAX V-FLECTO, a unique tire that combines multiple features in one: it reduces soil compaction, is designed for both field-and-road usage and does not require any changes of inflation pressure while transferring from the fields to the road and vice versa. In addition, it allows for maximized load capacity (+40%) at the same inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size.
Other products in the range are AGRIMAX FORCE and AGRIMAX SIRIO: the first is a specific tire for high-powered tractors suitable for use both in the fields and on the road, while the second is a high-speed tire designed for high-performance tractors.
For harvesting operations, BKT offers AGRIMAX TERIS, designed to support the increased weight of modern combine harvesters and their loads, and the row crop models such as AGRIMAX SPARGO, AGRIMAX RT 855, AGRIMAX RT 945 and AGRIMAX RT 955, amongst many others.
BKT had earlier, in 2017, fitted its tires onto Escorts’ Farmtrac 26 E, a robust high-performing electric compact tractor with a lithium-ion battery, offering maximum driving comfort.
BKT remains committed to research and development into tires for various types of equipment, and creating specialist tire line-ups for each and every application. Its range includes off-highway tires specially designed for vehicles in the agricultural, industrial, earthmoving, mining, ATV and gardening sector, and totaling over 2,400 products sold in over 160 countries.
