The Agrimax V-Flecto is the latest addition made by BKT to the growing Agrimax family. As high-powered tractors continue to advance both in terms of technology and performance, tyres are required to meet the challenging demand of providing first-class capabilities and reliability. The Agrimax V-Flectro tyre is BKT’s solution to this demand.
This tyre excels in both performance and reliability offering extraordinary resistance against highest stress levels as well as excellent speed levels even on paved roads, resulting in more productivity and a significant reduction in operating costs – whatever the task.
Less operating costs: Strength and durability are key strengths of the Agrimax V-Flecto tyre, resulting in at least 10% longer tyre life compared to an equivalent standard tyre. This means less overall costs for tyre management and maintenance, optimized operating hours and reduced machine downtime.
Reduced soil compaction: Thanks to an optimized footprint and a 10% larger tread profile compared to a standard tyre of the same size, Agrimax V-Flecto limits soil compaction, therefore improving yields.
Higher load capacity: Agrimax V-Flecto maximises load capacity without changing inflation pressure. While ordinary VF tyres carry 40% heavier loads compared to a standard tyre of the same size on a wider rim, an “NRO” marked VF tyre (like the Agrimax V-Flecto) carries up to 40% heavier loads compared to a standard tyre of the same size – but on the same rim.
NRO (Narrow Rim Option) Technology: Agrimax V-Flecto is the first BKT tyre adopting Narrow Rim Option technology according to the recently introduced experimental standard by the European Tyre and Rim Technical Organization, E.T.R.T.O. This technology enables the use of narrower and not specific rims, compared to those required for VF tyres of the same size.
Extremely strong and robust casing: Agrimax V-Flecto resists against all kinds of stress even under the most demanding operating conditions. The robustness of its casing makes this tyre the perfect solution to cater for the needs of a modern farming business, perfect for use in the fields as well as during road transfers. In addition, the “Bead Protection System” features a special reinforced bead tightly fitted on the rim, ensuring best adherence and constant pressure values under any operating conditions.
Comfort: An enjoyable ride and reduced operator’s fatigue are the main advantages of Agrimax V-Flecto. The optimized new lug angle design considerably reduces vibrations and noise level, enhancing safety and comfort both in the fields and on road transfers. Furthermore the special polyester casing enables the tyre to rapidly regain its correct shape even after longer standstills.
As a first step, this new tyre range is currently available in two sizes, 710/60R42 and 600/60R30n and will be available in Ireland from late June/early July.
