TYRES & WHEEL OPTIONS FOR BALERS 

 
 

Agrigear stocks an extensive range of tyres suitable for balers. Deciding on the tyre that best suits your machine will depend on a number of key factors: (1) the machine (2) field terrain and (3) ground soil conditions.

Flotation tyres are designed to stay on top of the surface and not sink in to the ground. Flotation is achieved by keeping the downward pressure on the ground slightly above what the ground can support. One of the key characteristics of a flotation tyre is its sidewall construction which allows the tread area of a tyre to flatten put to achieve a wide footprint. With flotation tyres, air volume is needed to carry the load; the higher the wheel, the less rolling resistance.  A radial tyre will increase flotation by 30% due to its flatter footprint.

The combination of low air pressure in flotation tyres and good weight transfer, offers excellent flotation, low ground pressure and hence maximum protection of soil and plants.  Larger-volume tyres protect the soil and grass sward in wet or mucky conditions as the large tyre diameters noticeably decrease rolling resistance and soil pressure.

 

Agrigear offers 3 flotation tyre ranges from BKT that are particularly suitable for balers – FL-648 (crossply), FL-630 PLUS (radial) and FL-639 (radial).

The wheel manufacturing and modification facility at Agrigear can produce custom-made wheels for any agricultural machine. For example, an existing set of wheels can be adjusted and modified to suit wider tyres.

Agrigear is the Irish importer of BKT tyres which are available nationwide through a select network of agents. For more information or to find your nearest stockist, call Agrigear on 042-9666444 or visit www.agrigear.ie.

 


BKT LAUNCH NEW SOLID TYRE RANGE FOR FORKLIFTS

 

Developed for industrial forklift machines, the MAGLIFT solid tyre range is available in either solid black standard (STD) or solid black lip (LIP).

The tread design is ultimately the same for both tyres, however the LIP tyre differs in its shape at base.LIP tyres offer easier and quicker fitment. The special base design guarantees firm fitment on to the rim without any slippage thus eliminating the requirement of locking rings and flange rings.

The main properties of the MAGLIFT solid tyre range are as follows;

- TREAD COMPOUND:
   highly cut, chip & wear resistant tread compound ensures longer life
- CUSHION COMPOUND:
   highly resilient compound provides a cushioning effect offering comfort
- BASE COMPOUND:
  
tough & low resilient compound ensures perfect grip with no slippage on rim
- STEEL BEAD WIRES:
   ensures rigidity and firm grip on rim up to worn-out stage of tyre

HELPFUL TIPS ABOUT TYRE PRESSURE

 

           ALL STEERING, BRAKING AND ACCELERATING FORCES                                      BETWEEN A VEHICLE AND THE ROAD                                           ARE MEDIATED BY THE TYRES.                  

Tyres are the most active safety equipment of your car – your car is kept on the road and you in control of your car by four contact areas the size of your palm.

The role of the tyres in the safety or a car is especially evident under demanding and quickly-changing conditions: on ice or snow, on a dry or wet road or in surprising situations.

Tyre pressures are quoted for cold tyres and will be specified in your car manual. They may also be shown on a sticker inside the fuel filler cap or driver's door. If you don't know the correct tyre pressures you can contact the vehicle manufacturer's customer services department.

You should check tyre pressures every two weeks when the tyres are cold using a reliable tyre pressure gauge.




Correct tyre pressure is important for several reasons:

Tyre life under or over inflation increases wear
Fuel economy under inflation increases fuel consumption
Safety under or over inflation will affect grip and braking performance
Ride over inflation can result in a harsh, uncomfortable ride

 

Agrigear is the Irish importer of Nokian tyres which are available nationwide through a select network of agents. Nokian tyres are world leaders in tyre technology with emphasis on fuel efficiency and care for the environment.
