Balkrishna Industries Ltd (BKT) will exhibit a large number of off-highway tires, some for the first time, at the upcoming Reifen 2014 International Trade Fair. The show will be held May 27-30 in Essen, Germany.
The radial tire Agrimax Force for high-powered tractors will be displayed in the size IF 710/75 R 42.

The Spargo is a radial tire designed for sprayers and row crop applications. Its technology allows for major loading capacity at unchanged inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size.
Also within the agriculture product line, BKT will display the radial tire FL630 Super in the size 750/60 R 30.5 The company says the tire is an ideal partner for trailers. Its design has been developed to ensure a steady and homogeneous footprint on the soil.
