BKT launches new Multimax MP 59 for agro trucks

BKT has launched its new Multimax MP 59 tyre, which it says has been designed specifically for agro trucks.

Thanks to the all steel casing, BKT claims the Multimax MP 569 stands out for its high speed and durability.

The optimised tread design provides better traction in the field and excellent self-cleaning properties, together with an extremely comfortable ride on the road and outstanding stability, according to the Indian tyre maker.

It adds that a significant saving in fuel consumption can be achieved thanks to low rolling resistance.

The new tyre is available to be fitted on the front axle of agro trucks in the 445/65 R 22.5 size in combination with FL 633 Performa on the rear axle in the 600/50 R 22.5 size.

A well-considered combination, as Denis Piccolo, BKT product manager explains: “Agro trucks normally have two different tread patterns on the rear drive axle and the front steer axle, depending on the work they have to do: the rear axle must guarantee more traction, while the front axle must have more directional ability.

“The ideal equipment for these vehicles, according to our studies, is achieved by combining two BKT products, such as: the new Multimax MP 569 on the front axle which features shoulders that assist traction.”

He adds: “It also has, in the central part of the tread, a design which guarantees both less rolling resistance and excellent ability to maintain direction.

“And on the rear axle FL 633 Performa, ultra-resistant, with exceptional load capacity and durability. It represents the future of Flotation tyres which are also ideal for agro trucks.”
