All these partners are ready to contribute to developing an innovative range of farming machines, based on data provided by sensors and applications.

Side by side with these giants is BKT, also committed to tyre innovation.

In real-time tests BKT’s radial tyre range AGRIMAX is an ideal partner fitted on these advanced tractors. The tractors show no fatigue and are perfect partners for farmers worldwide.

BKT is always attentive and committed to research and development into purpose built types that cater for equipment for specialist applications.

Part of BKT’s specialist tyre lines for tractors is AGRIMAX V-FLECTO, a product range that combines multiple functions: it reduces soil compaction, is ideal for both paddock-and-road usage as it doesn’t require any changes of inflation pressure for either application.

In addition, it allows for maximised load capacity (+40%) at the same inflation pressure compared to standard tyres of the same size.

Other tyres in the range include AGRIMAX FORCE which is a specific tyre for high-powered tractors suitable for both use in the paddock and on road.

There is also, AGRIMAX SIRIO a high-speed tyre designed for high-performance tractors.

For harvesting operations, BKT offers AGRIMAX TERIS. This range has been developed as a tyre to support the increased weight capacity of current combine harvesters.

In addition there are row crop tyres such as AGRIMAX SPARGO, AGRIMAX RT 855, AGRIMAX RT 945 and AGRIMAX RT 955.
