Agrigear offers advice on matching tyres to your loader

The loader is a versatile machine, robust and powerful. Commonly used for moving and loading gravel, sand and manure into a trailer or dumper, it can also be used for buck-raking silage during harvest time and then for handling hay and bales during winter feeding time.

It is vital that a loader machine is fitted with tyres that are suitable for the ground surfaces on which it is working andcompatible with its laden weight recommendations.

Agrigear offers a wide range of BKT tyres suitable for loaders and farm handler machines.

  • The Multimax MP-522 tyre is again a steel-belted radial tractor-grip tyre. It is designed to give superior traction on all surfaces and is especially suitable for loaders doing a lot of driving on concrete surfaces. The reinforced steel-belts with extra strong casing provide exceptional resistance to punctures.
  • The Multimax MP-527 tyre is a multi-purpose tyre designed for telehandlers. Its robust block pattern makes it ideal for working on concrete surfaces. Its strong widewall ensures excellent stability and its puncture and cut-resistance promotes longer service life.

Other tyre options:
Agrimax Teris tyre: excellent performing heavy-duty radial tyre designed to travel at speeds of up to 50km/h. The sidewall protector prevents damage to the tyre, while the multiple layers of polyester belts provide exceptional stability, handling and riding comfort.

  • RT-747 tyre: a standard all-round economical radial tyre suitable for smaller loaders and tele-handlers. It has extra lugs for better grip and handling stability and the tough tread compound provides good even wear.
  • Con Star tyre: its strong crossply construction and thick sidewall offers great stability in lift mode making it ideal for loaders and teleporters.
  • Grip Star tyre: a traction tyre featuring reinforced shoulder and bead area, making this tough tyre ideal for loaders and farm handlers working on rough farmyard surfaces.
  • GR-288 tyre: a heavy-duty crossply tyre with a rugged sturdy tread pattern. With its open-spaced traction pattern, this tyre provides great traction capability making it easy to drive on heavy dirt and mud conditions.
