The latest tires for spreaders from Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) are designed to provide stability, load and flotation capacity, even on the most fragile soil.
The company says high load capacity, excellent stability and outstanding traction are basic characteristics for spreader applications. Tire flotation is just as important, which turns into extreme gentleness on the soil, so as to avoid the soil compaction.
Here are the detail’s on BKT’s tire lineup for spreaders.
The Agrimax range consists of radial tires specifically developed for tractors. This range includes products that respect and protect the most delicate soils, but at the same time feature properties such as strength and high load capacity. Among the Agrimax tire models, one stands out specifically for spreaders.
BKT says the Agrimax RT 600 is a perfect mix of load capacity, excellent stability, high traction and gentleness, to ensure the lowest possible impact on the soil. It is ideal for soil tillage operations that require special attention.
The distinct tread pattern, its lower depth, the presence and arrangement of numerous lugs in addition to the particular rounded shape of the shoulder, make the tire a perfect solution, according to BKT. Five sizes are currently available: 620/75 R 26, 540/65 R 28, 800/65 R 32, 1050/50 R 32 and not least 650/65 R 38.
