Maxam Tire has completed its core size range for four-wheel drive self-propelled nutrient applicators with new additions to the AgriXtra H line-up. The tyre maker says the enlarged range allows it to “further improve farmers’ and growers’ productivity for fertilising seasons to come.”
Maxam has expanded its global original equipment supply commitment with the approval of the Agrixtra product line to select Case IH and New Holland brand equipment in North America. Maxam says the series has been helping it make inroads into the OEM supply sector since its launch almost a decade ago. Agrixtra tyres are building a reputation for performance in the value end of the global tyre market, assisted by the new deal with two leading global agricultural manufacturers.
Maxam Tire has expanded the size range of its Agrixtra 70 and 65 agricultural tyres. The brand said the new sizes would help deliver options for more varied farm applications in global markets. Maxam is adding seven new sizes to the Agrixtra 70 series and two new sizes to the Agrixtra 65 range.
The Maxam Agrixtra range of agricultural tyres has been approved for original fitment on select New Holland T5, T6, and T7 SWB and LWB tractors around the world. “The homologation, approval, and commercialisation of our radial agricultural tyres is a significant step in the evolution of the Maxam brand as a long-term supplier to CNH Industrial and New Holland Agriculture,” says Kevin Buckley Maxam OE sales director Europe. The Sailun Group brand added that the approval represents a “major milestone” for the brand and its agricultural tyre series, which was introduced in 2014.
Birmingham headquartered OTR, industrial, construction, and agricultural tyre supplier, Maxam has created what it calls a “first of its kind”, the MS708 solid OTR tyre. The MS708 features “zero maintenance” solid construction, long tread life, high heat resistance, superior wear and cut resistance, softer ride, self-cleaning tread and mounts on standard multi-piece earthmover rims.
New sizes have joined the Maxam Agrixtra MS951R radial traction agricultural tyre range, and Maxam Tire reports that further sizes are on their way. The company is also developing a new radial implement tyre, the Flotxtra MS961R; this will be available in 12 sizes. Other upcoming launches include the MS965 cross-ply implement rib tyre, which will be produced in 11 sizes, the MS966 cross-ply implement tractor tyre, to be sold in three sizes, and a range of agro-industrial radial tyres.
Following the recent launch of its new Agrixtra agricultural tyre range, Maxam Tire is exhibiting at Agritechnica for the first time. Held in Hannover, Germany between 8-11 November, Maxam’s newly appointed global MD, Martin West, said the company is “delighted to be attending and exhibiting at Agritechnica.”
Over the past 50 years, Luxembourg-based Maxam Tire has built up a reputation for the supply of quality, cost effective OTR radial, construction and industrial tyres, making a name for itself as a force in the off-the-road speciality tyre sector. At the start of 2015, the company broadened its product portfolio by offering the first of a new range of agricultural tyres; the Agrixtra MS951R. The new tyre is a radial, aimed at medium horsepower tractors and is available in nearly 40 sizes for rims from 24” up to 42”. It comes in aspect ratios of 85, 70 and 65 series, with the 65 series developed for applications at 65 km/h.
