Selecting the right tyre for your machinery is far from trivial and can prove to be a real challenge for various users, even the most expert.
Depending on working habits, soil conditions, load and type of transport, the tyre can change considerably. For those who prefer to learn more independently about the solution that best suits their needs, check out the agricultural, industrial and earthmoving sections of the BKT website.
Here, once the relevant machinery has been selected, it is possible to consult the tyre models and the most suitable sizes for each operation. However, this is only a general indication, because the product may not perform at its best in the specific situation. And no digital or paper tool can replace the know-how of an expert.
To make the right choice, the advice is therefore always to contact a professional for specific advice, to make operations efficient and sustainable.
Modern tyres are advanced and in a company they represent an important technical element, so specific skills are needed to make the most of them. BKT and its distributors are spokespersons for a simple message: “Trust the experts”. Because experts do not judge, but they listen and evaluate. No question is ever wrong, if asked in good time.
Using an unsuitable tyre leads, over time, to two important consequences: early replacement, replacement costs, vehicle downtime, cancellation of the investment in the chosen tyre and a waste of resources, time and above all consumption, going against any idea of sustainability.
Among the main mistakes in agriculture is choosing the wrong tyre for the wrong application, or thinking that the tyre can be easily adapted to uses other than those intended. For example, when you apply a loader on the front of the tractor, you generate a load that goes beyond the load capacity of the tyre and thus it is damaged ahead of time.
Another common way of damaging tyres is to seek excessive traction compared to the tyres and the vehicle itself. It is important to have ambitious goals, but without exaggerating. Always have a critical eye on the means available.
The world may be technological, but there is always a great need for people. It is their experience and know-how which can find a solution to every single case and request. Without underestimating the role and the fundamental weight that direct dialogue with a user can generate for the research and development of new products and solutions. Because this is exactly the recipe for BKT’s success.
