BKT bringing its ranger-toppers to Cologne show
Off-highway tyre specialist BKT says it going to display its top-of-the-range products for the market segments it serves at The Tire Cologne later this month. The BKT stand at the trade fair (Hall 06.1 Stand C030 D039) will feature tyres for agricultural, agro-industrial, earthmoving, industrial, and construction applications.
For agricultural, the BKT Agrimax Force will be displayed in size IF 900/60 R 42. BKT comments that this is a tyre that has been specifically designed with the company’s “further developed” IF technology for high-power tractors. It combines increased load capacity with lower inflation pressure compared to a standard tire of the same size. Also on display is the Agrimax Teris, size 800/65 R 32, for high-power harvesters and spreaders.
For both industrial and agricultural applications, BKT will exhibit the Con Star in size 400/70–24. This tyre is intended for use on backhoe loaders, compact loaders and telehandlers. BKT says it represents “a winning mix of features providing lateral and vertical stability, high load capacity along with an extended product lifecycle.”
Specifically conceived for the industrial sector, Portmax PT 93 is on display in size 280/75 R 22.5. The Portmax PT 93 was developed for terminal tractors employed in heavy-duty operations at ports, container terminals as well as logistics and distribution centres. And last but not least is the Airomax AM 27, size 445/95 R 25, a crane tyre for the construction sector that is suitable for applications both on road surfaces and the aggressive terrains at construction sites.
BKT promised “more than advanced products,” sharing that its booth will be “livened up by moments of fun and entertainment offering visitors the opportunity to win exclusive BKT gadgets.” Not to be overlooked, it adds, is the outdoor communication such as the 2018 marketing campaign “A long way together” aimed at the agricultural and OTR/Ind-Con sectors; show visitors will encounter this campaign right at the entrance to the exhibition and in certain outdoor spaces.
