Mitas releases high-capacity tires for agricultural sprayers
Mitas has released two new high-capacity (HC) radial tires for application to the next generation of self-propelled agricultural sprayers.
The company’s HC 1000 line will now feature two new NRO (Narrow Rim Option) tires in sizes VF 650/65R38 and VF 750/60R46.
Mitas’s latest agricultural tires have been designed to deliver a secure fit at low pressures while also providing a longer service life. The tires benefit from an advanced VF (Very High Flexion) construction, enabling a 40% higher load capacity with improved levels of traction. The VF construction also provides better ground protection to improve crop yields. Furthermore, the NRO design enables the tires to be mounted on standard-size rims and provides further savings for users.
“Our latest tires are ready for an entirely new generation of machines, and in size and specifications ready to rise to the challenge,” commented Pavel Kott, product manager for Mitas agriculture tires. “At Mitas, we want to provide a reliable solution for all the work our customers do. Our newest additions to the HC 1000 range have already shown tremendous promise for US original equipment manufacturers on the latest generation of high-load and self-propelled sprayers. Seeing this initial success, we are excited to bring these tires to customers worldwide.”
