BKT developes new tyres for telehandlers

BKT has developed several new tyres for telehandlers.

Developed for telehandlers in industrial applications, BKT says the Multimax MP 527 is a versatile radial tyre providing excellent traction and stability especially during the lifting stage thanks to an aggressive tread design and the robust sidewall.

Extraordinarily resistant and durable, this tyre is available in the following sizes: 340/80 R 18, 360/70 R 18, 340/80 R 20, 400/70 R 20, 400/70 R 24, 400/80 R 24, 440/80 R 24, 460/70 R 24, 500/70 R 24, 480/80 R 26 and 440/80 R 28.

Outstanding versatility is the distinguishing feature of the RT 747 Agro industrial. This agro-industrial tyre ensures maximum stability and excellent grip thanks to its extra large lugs. It is a perfect multi-purpose tyre that can provide best support in many applications, according to the company, and is now available in the two sizes 460/70 R 24 and 500/70 R 24.

The Multimax MP 522 is a tyre that is suitable for any agro-industrial application providing great stability and high load capacity. The reinforced bead along with the steel belts ensure excellent traction plus extraordinary cut resistance – essential features for digging and loading operations, BKT says. Sizes range from 280/80 R 18, 340/80 R 18, 340/80 R 20, 380/75 R 20, 400/70 R 20, 400/70 R 24, 400/80 R 24, 440/80 R 24, 460/70 R 24, 500/70 R 24, 540/70 R 24, 480/80 R 26 and 440/80 R 28.

Another solution designed for agro-industrial handling equipment is Con Star. The tyre features wide lugs that increase the contact area on the ground enabling the tyre to withstand heavy loads. Being made of a special compound, the risk of cuts and other damages is notably reduced and a more extended tyre life-cycle is ensured. Con Star is available on the market in the following sizes: 340/80 – 18, 340/80 – 20, 380/75 – 20, 400/70 – 20, 400/70 – 24, 400/80 – 24, 440/80 – 24, 460/70 – 24, 500/70 – 24, 480/80 – 26 and 440/80 – 28.

Particularly suitable for municipality and maintenance applications as well as loading operations is TR 461. This tyre has a robust sidewall turning into increased resistance against cuts and chips even on extremely hard surfaces. The tyre is available in the following sizes: 12.5/80 – 18, 16.9 – 24, 19.5L – 24, 21L – 24 and 16.9 – 28.

Excellent traction plus top self-cleaning properties make Grip Star a real star. The tyre is perfect for all seasons and particularly suitable for operations on muddy terrains, BKT says. It is available in size 15.5/80 – 24.
