Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) will display products from its Agrimax tire lineup and a selection of all-terrain vehicle (ATV) tires at the 2017 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., Aug. 29 to 31.

The Agrimax Force will be displayed in size IF 900/60 R 42. BKT says this specially designed radial tire for applications with high-powered tractors (over 250 HP) ensures top performance and efficiency. It is a really comfortable tire for both field operations and road transfers that allows for major load capacity at lower inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size.

The Agrimax RT 600 is perfect for grassland, harvesting and spraying applications, according to BKT. Its large contact area ensures an excellent pressure distribution on the land, thus protecting the soil and preserving the yield of any farming business. The tire will be present at the trade show in size 1050/50 R 32.

Some of its features are outstanding traction, optimum self-cleaning properties, stability, and higher load capacity at standard inflation pressure.

Another featured tire will be Agrimax RT 855, displayed in size 380/85 R 34. BKT says Agrimax RT 855 provides excellent traction and riding comfort. Mainly designed for soil tillage and both field and road transport, some sizes are also suitable for row crops, spraying, and vineyard harvesting.

The Agrimax Sirio, size IF 600/70 R 30, is BKT’s high-speed tire (up to 70 km/h - 45 mph) for high-performance tractors. Providing best performance both on the road and in the fields, the high sidewall flexibility ensures outstanding comfort to improve the driving experience, according to the company.

In addition, BKT will also feature its ATV tire lineup. A customized Yamaha YXZ100R ATV vehicle equipped with Sierra Max tires will be in the BKT booth. The Sierra Max tire will be displayed in size 26x11-14. BKT says the tire has been specifically designed with a radial structure allowing for more agile and comfortable driving even under extreme conditions.
