Find out more about the Agrimax V-Flecto range of tyres manufactured by BKT to reduce soil compaction in a highly informative web page and video clip
Since we ran a feature article on the Agrimax V-Flecto range of tyres produced by BKT in March 2021, see story link, the range has proven very popular for growers seeking ways to reduce soil compaction.
The extra-large and heavier farming machinery released in recent year has made growers increasingly aware of how their equipment can impact on the returns expected from their crops.
All the hard work and precise seed placement can be quickly destroyed if the machinery running across the paddock is causing unruly compaction.
With this in mind, BKT has carried out extensive research on soil compaction and as a result has become a market leader in producing tyres developed to offer the best performance for their application with the least possible impact on the ground.
Flexibility, efficiency and power are the three things that current growers demand in their endeavour to produce high incomes from their cropping paddocks.
Current-day growers have to increasingly choose even more powerful and heavier equipped machines to support their increased workloads for higher volumes at harvest.
This is the basis for the development of the BKT Agrimax V-Flecto range of tyres. These tyres are designed to improve the performance of high-powered tractors.
What makesAgrimax V-Flecto tyres so special is the built-in VF technology This makes it possible to maximise loads without changing tyre pressure. These tyres can transport 40% more weight than a standard tyre of the same size and with the same recommended rim.
This characteristic benefits not only the grower, who can transport heavier loads in less time, but also the soil. With a wider tyre footprint and the tread depth increased by 10% in width. Agrimax V-Flecto tyres work effectively to help prevent soil compaction.
A further strength of the Agrimax V-Flecto range is in their durability that is rated as a 10% longer wear cycle than the standard equivalent.
The ultra-resistant casing and the special reinforced bead allow the Agrimax V-Flecto range to exploit all the tractor’s potential both in the paddock and on the road, where it can reach speeds up to 65kph with a very comfortable ride.
