It performs incredible stunts, overturns and restarts leaving car wrecks behind - terribly crushed by its mighty tires. A real monster on four wheels, but...never fear: From November 10 to 14, 2015 and during the two exclusive preview days of November 8 to 9, you will be able to meet, tame and calm it at the BKT stand (Hannovermesse - Hall 04, STAND D22) at Agritechnica in Hanover (Germany), the world's largest trade show for agricultural machinery. The giant Monster Truck of the Grave Digger team, standing steady on its four enormous BKT tires, will catch the attention of visitors of every age who can get on board and have a real MONSTER EXPERIENCE.
During the fair, a driver of the Grave Digger team will be present at the BKT stand and talk to the audience in four different occasions over the day to unveil the secrets of the monsters. Once on board, visitors will be photographed, and they can later download the picture from a special BKT web page. In addition, an autograph card of the Grave Digger team driver will be distributed together with a Hot Wheels monster truck model - naturally equipped with BKT tires like the original, of course. Some lucky fellows among the visitors who try out the MONSTER EXPERIENCE will receive a special surprise.
BKT novelties for farming machinery
Far away from the show biz but in the midst of the world of work, BKT tires undergo long tests, which are actually not less challenging than those of their peers at Monster Jam.
That is why BKT keeps the attention focused on agricultural needs by presenting each year new sizes and brand new tires to the public, such as RIDEMAX IT 697 M+S, representing the best response to the needs of modern farming contractors during winter operations. This winter tire for tractors ensures perfect grip for all operations on icy and snowy land without the need of snow chains being mounted. Thanks to the tread grooves and the special mix, a tractor can be driven in full stability, comfort and with maximum control at low temperatures even on roads that are both difficult and dangerous due to snow and ice.
The radial tire RIDEMAX FL 693 M for agricultural trailers will be present at the BKT stand in its new size 600/55 R 26.5. Its particular self-cleaning tread reduces rolling resistance decreasing fuel consumption - the ideal choice for mainly road usage with high loading capacity.
Likewise, the FL 630 ULTRA tire for spreaders, trailers and tank trucks will be displayed at the BKT stand in the new size 710/50 R 26.5. Thanks to its large number of lugs as well as the reinforced bead, this very versatile and resistant tire is ideal for a mixed usage both on the road and in the fields.
To stick to the subject of trailers, BKT will exhibit also the FL 630 SUPER tire in the size 750/60 R 26.5 at Agritechnica. Qualities like uniform drive and resistance are much appreciated on the road, even if construction features and tread design make the tire suitable for multi-purpose use on any terrain.
The tried and tested AGRIMAX SPARGO tire line for sprayers and row crop applications will be present in size VF 380/85 R 38. The technology of the Agrimax Spargo series allows for supporting heavier loads at the same pressure compared to that of a standard tire of the same size. Besides, design and structure contribute to minimizing soil compaction preserving the crops’ productivity.
Of course, there is one of BKT’s showpieces not to be missed at Agritechnica: The AGRIMAX FORCE radial tire for 4WD high-powered tractors (over 250 hp) will be displayed in size IF 650/85 R 42. Agrimax Force has been engineered through the development of a special concept of the IF technology, offering customers an always increased loading capacity at lower pressure values compared to a standard tire. Featuring outstanding flotation performance, the tire is advisable whenever a larger footprint on the terrain shall contribute to not compacting the soil without compromising performance.
