Mitas announces Agriterra 02 and Agriterra 03 flotation radial tyres range extension. Nine new sizes will be available as of March 2015. One of the main advantages of Agriterra tyres is their low operating costs with a positive impact on fuel consumption. Steel belt construction ensures higher loads, stability at higher speeds of more than 30 km/h and improves the tyre’s puncture resistance. Agriterra’s tread features larger tread voids, improving the self-cleaning properties of the tyre. Thanks to the well-designed tread pattern, Mitas flotation tyres have an 11% larger tread contact area than premium competitors and 22% larger than competitors with a traction type of tread pattern.
“Flotation radial tyres are intended for use on the heaviest agricultural implements, such as slurry tanks and grain trailers. In the first quarter of 2015 Mitas will have in the product offer 12 variations of flotation radial tyres,” said Pavel Kott, Mitas’ product manager for agricultural tyres.
“Mitas is oriented on what benefits farmers. Flotation tyres can bring them higher yields thanks to lower soil compaction caused by flotation tyre during field operation.”
