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 company says special IF-technology further developed by BKT enables professional users to make the most of heavy loads at lower pressures compared to a standard tire, ensuring top performance, minor soil compaction and longer tire life.

The Agrimax Spargo tire will be displayed in the size VF 380/90 R 46. The company says the tire is known and appreciated by BKT customers for its extremely functional features and its productivity potential.

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.

BKT will also display the Airomax AM 27, a product for on- and off-the-road high-speed cranes suitable for applications on road and highway surfaces as well as on more aggressive construction site grounds.
