Maxam Rolls Out VF Ag Tire Line
Maxam Tire North America has unveiled the Maxam AgriXtra N family of very high-flexion (VF) ag tires and will showcase the line at the upcoming National Farm Machinery Show.
The event will take place Feb. 16-19 in Louisville, Ky.
The new line is designed to provide high-clearance tractors and self-propelled, high-clearance sprayers "with a solution that can improve productivity and/or reduce soil compaction," according to Maxam officials.
The first tire in the line, the AgriXtra N VF380/90R46, features Maxam's signature 45-degree lug profile "that provides excellent traction and stability, ensuring minimal vibration when roading."
The line will enable end users to carry 40% more tire load at standard air pressure levels or operate at 40% less air pressure for given loads.
"Depending on the customer's needs, the VF performance advantage can deliver either reduced soil compaction or the ability to carry heavier loads without compromising traction, while delivering the improved productivity farmers and growers are seeking."
