Spraying is a crucial phase in farming and needs to be performed perfectly to achieve optimal results. During operations the soil must be preserved from compaction despite the weight of the equipment. BKT have specifically designed a range of tyres to ensure best performance and profitability specifically for spraying applications.

 Agrimax Spargo is a radial tyre developing a new concept of VF technology. Specifically developed for spraying applications and row crops, it can stand heavier loads while maintaining the same inflation pressure compared to a standard tyre of the same size. This way, it preserves the yield and reduces soil compaction.

This tyre can be used for several purposes, both in the fields and on the road - always ensuring maximum driving comfort as well as excellent stability. Great traction performance and a constant contact with the terrain complete the profile of Agrimax Spargo. Four are the sizes currently available on the market are four: VF 380/85 R 38, VF 380/90 R 46, VF 380/105 R 50 and VF 420/95 R 50.

 In addition to Agrimax Spargo, BKT boasts a complete range of narrow tyres. Not only are these ideal for sprayers, but also for farming vehicles operating amidst row crops, or for grape harvesting in vineyards.

 The first is the Agrimax RT945, whose tyre tread has been specifically designed for soil protection and crop preservation. Its extraordinary self-cleaning capacity facilitates transfers from the fields to the road, while being constantly delicate to the soil. Apart from its talent for spraying operations, this tyre stands out among other “narrow” products for being particularly effective for row crops. This product line comprises seven sizes.

 Then there is the Agrimax RT955, a tyre that is perfect for heavy harvesting machinery, and ideal for row crop applications. This pattern is available in twenty different sizes. Agrimax RT 955 features a special tyre tread and a rounded shoulder. It also ensures extraordinary traction and a constant contact with the terrain.

 To complete the sprayer range, there is the Agrimax RT855 which is suitable for row crops, spraying and grape harvesting. This tyre stands out for its extraordinary driving comfort and traction. Ideal for soil tillage as well as for field and road transport, it’s available in as many as forty-four different sizes.
