Agricultural and Industrial Tyres

Goodyear’s Turkey manufacturing base is set to be extended, with a specific plant set up for radial tyres, providing benefits in terms of speed, availability and service for distributors and farmers. 

Magna Tyres has recently seen its 29.5R25 Magna MA10+ tyres fitted to a 980k Caterpillar Wheel Loader in Oman for rough terrain work. In a recent company press release Magna Tyres stated, "After completing the fitment in January 2022, we are very happy to be working with one of the leading groups in Oman and looking forward to working closely with this customer over the years to come."

At the National Farm Machinery Show, Louisville, Kentucky, taking place between 16-19th February, MAXAM Tire will showcase its VF (Very High Flexion) tyres. These high-speed/load solutions ensure minimal soil compaction, improved traction and enhanced product performance.

When working on rocky patches and soft swampy surfaces for forestry work, Eetu Toroska found that NOKIAN TYRES’ Forest King TRS 2+ tyres could easily handle different landscapes.

Liebherr, a global Austrian-based company that specialises in construction equipment, has reached an agreement with Apollo Tyres Ltd to supply Vredestein Tyres for several wheel loader models.

Enhancing its radial tyre offer, BKT Tires offers tyres that maintain traction and manoeuvrability in different weather conditions and different industry specialisms involving cranes.

With 3,900 tractors registered in December 2021, this constitutes a 142% increase on December 2020, when 1,611 tractors were registered. This strong rise helped end the year 9.4% ahead of 2020 levels, in statistics released by Profi.

Grigg-Agri has seen its Michelin YieldBib tyres clock 4,500 hours. Even in intensive road work, there has been a noticeable reduction in crop damage. The tyres, which use Ultraflex Technology, can carry the same loads with 40% reduced inflation pressure in a sign that the Cornish contractors can go the distance with Michelin.

When looking at traction, grip, resistance, safety and muddy terrains, BKT believes there is always a perfect tyre for any situation.
