Seregno (Italy), May 12, 2017 – BKT, one of today’s world-leading Off-Highway tire manufacturers, offers complete lines of products that are specifically designed for vehicles operating in the agricultural, industrial and OTR sector. The company, engaged on a daily basis in the Research and Development of new solutions, has been able to meet users’ needs, designing specialized tires that make operations both productive and comfortable.

High load capacity, excellent stability and outstanding traction are basic characteristics for this application. Tire flotation is just as important, which turns into extreme gentleness on the soil, so as to avoid the much dreaded soil compaction.
Out of the Agrimax tire lineup
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.
We are talking about Agrimax RT 600: 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. What makes this tire the perfect solution is its distinct tread pattern, its lower depth, the presence and arrangement of numerous lugs in addition to the particular rounded shape of the shoulder. Five sizes are currently available on the market: 620/75 R 26, 540/65 R 28, 800/65 R 32, 1050/50 R 32 and not least 650/65 R 38.
Flotation: BKT’s floating lines
BKT offers many Flotation models, specifically designed for trailers, tankers, and spreaders. Tires that are perfect for combined use on the road and in the fields, featuring excellent flotation properties for an extremely low impact on the soil.
The first of the various Flotation models suited for spreaders is FL 630 Ultra. Its modified design featuring more lugs, the reinforced bead area and the special tread pattern ensure perfect grip on all kinds of soils, both on the road and in the field, with excellent self-cleaning properties. Eight sizes are available: 500/60 R 22.5, 560/45 R 22.5, 560/60 R 22.5, 600/50 R 22.5, 710/40 R 22.5, 600/55 R 26.5, 650/55 R 26.5 and 710/50 R 26.5.
FL 639 is also a Flotation tire suited for spreaders. Its main characteristic is the wide footprint, which protects the soil from the compaction phenomenon. FL 639 also features a reinforced tread that contributes to a longer life cycle. The available sizes are: 560/45 R 22.5, 600/50 R 22.5 and 710/40 R 22.5.
Another tire perfect for spreader applications is FL 630 Super, suited for multi-purpose use on any terrain, including road travel, where it shows off its uniform running and strength. Its large footprint allows perfect weight distribution on the ground, thus limiting soil compaction and allowing higher load capacity. There are ten available sizes: 560/60 R 22.5, 580/65 R 22.5, 600/55 R 26.5, 650/55 R 26.5, 650/65 R 26.5, 710/50 R 26.5, 750/45 R 26.5, 750/60 R 26.5, 650/65 R 30.5 and 750/60 R 30.5.
