BKT launches new tyres for Forestry applications
Off-Highway tyre manufacturer BKT, has developed specific tyres for the forestry sector. The four new forestry products are Forestech, FS 216, TR 678 and F 240.
Forestech is the BKT tyre moving through the forest with exceptional strength and resistance even under the toughest operating conditions. Its sturdy bead and the reinforced shoulder area ensure high puncture resistance. All these features make Forestech the ideal tire for forwarders. It is available on the market in three different sizes: 600/55 – 26.5, 710/45 – 26.5 and 750/55 – 26.5.
FS 216’s extraordinary cut and tear resistance make it the perfect tyre not only for forwarders, but also for skidders. Good traction, top self-cleaning properties and high load capacity complete the picture of the tyre, which is available in eight different sizes.
TR 678 has been designed for forestry harvesters. It joins the previous two patterns in terms of strength and resistance – essential requirements in this application. It is a very versatile tyre, which is also suitable for excavation operations, and presents best self-cleaning properties in addition to excellent traction.
F 240 is the latest addition to BKT’s forestry tyres, specifically designed for logging operations. The tread compound ensures an extended product life-cycle along with cut, wear and tear resistance.
