The BKT AGRIMAX tyre, created to improve the performance of high-powered tractors, will soon be available in 22 different sizes. All the new sizes are equipped with VF technology. 

BKT Adds a New Size to AGRIMAX V-FLECTO Range 

The range of BKT's lead product, AGRIMAX V-FLECTO, is expanding. A new size is already available and three are being developed and will soon join the 18 which already exist. The new size is VF 710/70 R 42 which will soon be followed by VF 750/70 R 44, VF 710/75 R 38 and VF 710/55 R 38. 

The objectives of new agriculture are ambitious: working better and sustainably, saving time and resources, optimising. Machinery and tyres must make a significant contribution to improving results, from every perspective. For this reason, BKT developed AGRIMAX V-FLECTO which meets all of these criteria, improving tractor performance on every type of terrain. This tyre brings together in a single product a range of “combined” solutions to optimise the work and performance of high-powered tractors. 

This tyre makes it possible to maximise loads without changing tyre pressure, regardless of speed, managing to carry 40% more weight than a standard tyre of the same size and with the same recommended rim. At the same time soil compaction is reduced thanks to a wider footprint area and a 10% wider tread. 

The great strength is then durability which is 10% longer than the standard equivalent, a characteristic which means a benefit in terms of productivity and optimisation of farm work. 

The ultra-resistant casing and the special strengthened bead allow AGRIMAX V-FLECTO to exploit all the tractor's potential both in the field and on the road, where it can also reach high speeds. 

It is the first BKT tyre which makes use of NRO (Narrow Rim Option) Technology, conforming to the standards recorded by the European Tire and Rim Technology Organization (ETRTO). This marking allows for standard rims and not dedicated rims which are instead needed for VF tyres of the same size.
