Agricultural and Industrial Tyres

Minimising the impact of agriculture machinery on the soil, BKT’s Flotation Range is providing new ways to provide sustainability and efficiency in the field without damaging either the soil or the crops.

In changing road conditions, each axle wheel needs to be able to handle heavy loads. Nokian’s all-weather Hakka Truck Trailer range has been designed to give the driver full confidence on the road, as the tyre has a solid grip, low rolling resistance and offers high mileage, even on varying road terrains. 

Nokian’s CT agricultural trailer tyre has been offering stability, long service life and high load-bearing capacity for years in specialist earthmoving and contracting jobs. Now updated, the tyre is ready for more intense loads in higher operating pressures resulting in better operational efficiency. 

The roadshow visits 10 European countries between the months of September and November. Michelin experts carry out product demonstrations and live comparative tests with the Michelin range for the agricultural sector. 

For many years, the Nokian TR Forest tyre with its comprehensive size range has been a proven, reliable choice for light and medium weight forestry tractors. Now the tyre has been renewed with new features – without losing any of the properties that made it a classic for tough forestry work. 

With the scrap and waste industry constantly innovating and creating more efficient machinery, MAXAM has adapted with the industry by adding two new sizes to the MS708 series specifically for modern machinery.  

The latest tractor registrations figures arising from the press communication issued by the Ministerio de Agricultura, Pesca y Alimentación (Ministry for Agriculture, Fishing and Food) show that August 2021 is slightly behind August 2020, whilst still remaining significantly ahead of where the market was in year-to-date terms in 2020.

The Michelin group will be presenting its range of agricultural tyres at the AgroGlobal fair, which is set to take place on 7, 8 and 9 September in Portugal. They will showcase tyre models and chains that optimise the productivity and profitability of farmers and the agricultural sector. 

The Agricultural Engineer’s Association has released its registration figures for tractors over 50bhp for August, as the association reported that the UK market was 25.2% ahead of 2020 in year-to-date figures.

The Case IH Vestrum, Maxxum and Puma tractor series are now available with TractorMaster. The Case IH tractors can now be ordered with listed Continental tyres ex works in a new move signifying Continental’s increasing focus on extending on their agricultural growth strategy.
