BKT Will Unveil Spreader Tire at Agritechnica

Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) will launch the newest addition to its flotation product family, the FL 637, at Agritechnica 2017 in Hanover, Germany, Nov. 12-18.

The FL 637 is designed for spreaders, trailers and tank trucks. BKT says the directional tread design stands for excellent traction, whereas the steel-belted structure ensures increased durability along with higher load capacity. Excellent flotation properties, low rolling resistance, and first-class self-cleaning properties make FL 637 an extraordinary solution for the combined transport in the fields and on the road. For more information, visit the FL 637 page on the BKT website.

In addition, BKT’s Agrimax V-Flecto tire will be fitted on a Plexiglas tractor. BKT says the Agrimax V-Flecto is a response modern agriculture’s present and future needs by significantly increasing machinery performance. For details, see the Agrimax V-Flecto page on the BKT website.

Also on display at the BKT stand will be the BK-Loader 53 (in size 405/70 R 20). This tire has been recently launched on the market, and is specifically suitable for recycling operations. Designed with aramid belts, it has been developed to be fitted on loaders in industrial applications. For more information, see the BK-Loader 53 page on the BKT website.

BKT also plans to give away footballs to booth visitors. Iya Traoré, a Guinean football player and freestyler who is featured on TV shows, music videas and commercials, will perform.

BKT has recently signed an agreement with the Traoré, who will be the company’s special guest at several events to come. BKT supports the IYA Foundation, set up by Traoré for the purpose of helping 8-to-28-year-old children and young people in Guinea through sport and educational programs.

"We are ready to participate in Agritechnica, which has always been a key event for us, says Lucia Salmaso of BKT Europe. “This year, it will be of even more fundamental importance looking forward to all surprises we are going to reveal. We wish to share with our public all news and novelties around our company – first of all in terms of new products.”

BKT will be in Hall 3, stand B11.
