Mitas launching metre-wide SFT tyre at SIMA
The world premiere of the latest Mitas agricultural tyre, the metre-wide 1000/50 R 25 SFT, will take place at the SIMA show in Paris later this month. The tyre is designed for use on high-horsepower agricultural machinery such as potato harvesters and self-propelled spreaders, and offers flexibility when it comes to load and inflation pressure.
The wide fitment joins the Mitas Super Flexion Tyres (SFT) portfolio. “The SFT tyre range is a backbone of the Mitas product offering for powerful agricultural machinery,” shares Pavel Kott, product manager for Mitas agricultural tyres. “By releasing the new 1000/50 R 25 SFT worldwide we are further extending the range of our Super Flexion Tyres portfolio, which constitutes the top products of their type on the market.”
Flexible, ultra-strong sidewalls allow low inflation pressures for high load-carrying capacities, gentle ground handling and higher yields. The Mitas 1000/50 R 25 172 A8 (166 D) SFT has a D speed rating, allowing speeds up to 40 mph or 65 km/h. Under 2.4 bar and speeds 10 km/h (cyclic), it can carry loads of 10,080 kilogrammes. The tyre is 1.65 metres in diameter.
The Mitas agricultural team can be found at stand C 060 (Hall 7) during the SIMA fair week of 26 February to 2 March.
