BKT unveils Multimax MP 569
By Bree Rody
BKT has introduced a new tire, the Multimax MP 569. The new product, part of the Multimax line, is designed for use at high speeds while carrying heavy loads. Specifically, it is targeted for a range of applications for agro trucks and mixed-use vehicles used to transport grass, earth and sand or to collect corn grind in fields alongside mulchers.
The tire’s tread design provides better traction in the field as well as self-cleaning properties. It was created 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 600/50 R 22.5 size.
“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,” said Dennis Piccolo, product manager at BKT, in a statement. “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. 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 tires which are also ideal for agro trucks.”
MULTIMAX MP 569 is currently available in the 445/65 R 22.5 (18 R 22.5) size. The tire guarantees load capacity of 5800 kg at 100 km/h, with pressure of 9bar.
