BKT shows an always more established presence at the Farm Progress Show 2017, the largest outdoor farming event throughout the United States, which will be held in Decatur, IL, from August 29-31. On an even larger area this year, the top-of-the-range products from the Agrimax tire lineup for the farming sector are on display along with a selection of ATV tires.  

At the upcoming Farm Progress Show 2017, BKT will exhibit its masterpieces from the agricultural tire lineup Agrimax starting with its high-end product, Agrimax Force, displayed in size IF 900/60 R 42. This specially designed radial tire for applications with high-powered tractors (over 250 hp) ensures top performance and efficiency. It is a really comfortable tire for both field operations and road transfers that allows for major load capacity at lower inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size.

Agrimax RT 600, instead, is perfect for grassland, harvesting and spraying applications. Its large contact area ensures an excellent pressure distribution on the land, thus protecting the soil and preserving the yield of any farming business. The tire will be present at the trade show in size 1050/50 R 32. Agrimax RT 600 tireAgrimax RT 600 tire

The next tire on display is Agrimax Spargo, size VF 380/105 R 50, the special BKT tire for row crops, which has been designed for enhanced productivity in the fields preserving the soil. Some of its features are outstanding traction, optimum self-cleaning properties, stability, and higher load capacity at standard inflation pressure.

Another showpiece is Agrimax RT 855, displayed in size 380/85 R 34, which provides excellent traction and riding comfort. Mainly designed for soil tillage and both field and road transport, some sizes are also suitable for row crops, spraying, and vineyard harvesting.

To complete the picture of the extensive Agrimax lineup, there is Agrimax Sirio, size IF 600/70 R 30, BKT’s high-speed tire (up to 70 km/h - 45 mph) for high-performance tractors. Providing best performance both on the road and in the fields, the high sidewall flexibility ensures outstanding comfort to improve the driving experience. 

After the tour through the agricultural exhibits, driving experience is actually the key word that leads to a completely different attraction. Since BKT is the official and exclusive tire manufacturer of Monster Jam, the audience at this year’s Farm Progress Show has the great opportunity to take a break at the booth area, which has been specially arranged for the Monster Jam Experience powered by BKT. At the limelight there is the legendary Grave Digger Truck. Throughout the entire event, visitors will be able to enjoy an unforgettable experience: getting on the Monster Truck and slipping into the driver’s seat. However, BKT has more surprises in store such as gadgets for visitors.

In addition to the agricultural range of tires and the leisure attractions, the ATV tire lineup will be highlighted at the BKT booth by means of a new display unit and the BKT customized ATV vehicle Yamaha YXZ100R equipped with Sierra Max tires. Among the displayed ATV products, there is the Sierra Max tire, size 26x11-14, which has been specifically designed with a radial structure allowing for more agile and comfortable driving even under extreme conditions as you can find during sporting competitions, when these vehicles race over muddy or rocky terrain, or even desert areas. Another representative pattern for the ATV lineup is Bogmax, which has been specially designed for mud bog racing and is displayed in size 32x10-14. Sidewall protectors reduce impacts and possible damages. The 6-ply-rated tire stands out for extra durability featuring also a cut-and-chip-resistant tread compound and outstanding self-cleaning properties.
