BKT Designs New Range for Farming Trailers
Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has introduced an extensive flotation range for farming trailers.
Designed for combined road-field usage, the company says the new tires are gentle to the land providing reduced soil compaction while supporting heavy loads even at high speed.
Both tractor and trailer tires leave a footprint on the land and must be “coordinated” in order to obtain the best result in terms of maximum proficiency and least impact on the land, according to BKT.
Every pattern in the flotation range has special features making it suitable for specific applications. Descriptions of the tires follow.
