LOADER TYRES & WHEELS FROM AGRIGEAR

MATCHING THE RIGHT TYRES TO YOUR LOADER MACHINE IS CRUCIAL IN ORDER TO GET GOOD PERFORMANCE AND GOOD WEAR.

The agricultural loader is a versatile machine, robust and powerful. Commonly used for moving and loading gravel, sand and manure into a trailer or dumper, it can also be used for handling hay and bales during winter feeding time as well as for buck-raking silage during harvest time.

It is vital that a loader machine is fitted with tyres that are:

     1) suitable for the ground surfaces on which it is working and

     2) compatible with its laden weight recommendations.


Agrigear offers a wide range of BKT tyres suitable for loaders, teleporters, tele-handlers and farm handlers.

 

Agrigear offers a complete wheel solution service where new wheels can be manufactured or existing wheels modified and fitted with new tyres.

One of the modification jobs completed at Agrigear was the conversion of an industrial loader used on construction sites where its original 25” industrial wheels were replaced with tractor-grip traction tyres on 26” rims; that loader is now used for agricultural work such as buck-raking silage.

BKT LAUNCHES NEW CONSTAR TYRE

IDEAL FOR TELE-PORTERS USING JACKS


The CONSTAR tyre is designed for use on larger tele-porter machines used for heavy lifting and long reaching with jacks.

Available in size 440/80X24 22ply with a load/ speed rating of 168A8, the CONSTAR tyre can carry a load of 5.6 tonne per wheel while travelling at a speed of 40km/h. Click here for technical data information.

The thick sidewalls offer lifting stability, whilst the wider lugs give a bigger contact area enabling the carrying of heavy loads.

The tough tread compound offers superior cut and chip- resistance which effectively promotes a long life tyre.
For smaller and lighter tele-porters, the GRIPSTAR tyre in size 15.5/80X24 with a 16 ply rating and the AS-504 crossply tyre in size 16.5/85X24 with a 16-ply rating are both recommended tyre options.

WINTER TYRES FROM NOKIAN AVAILABLE AT AGRIGEAR


Winter is the season that presents the worst conditions for driving: it constantly rains and usually ice and snow appear on the road. Winter tyres are a wise investment to help safe travel during the cold season.

WINTER TYRES EXPLAINED

1) WINTER TYRES ARE NOT SNOW TYRES... they can be used on roads that might be wet, frosty, icy, covered with slush, rutted with compacted snow, or merely dry and cold. They are designed to be more effective than regular tyres in any temperature below 7°C on any type of road.

 

2) WINTER TYRES HAVE A SPECIAL RUBBER COMPOUND... they are specially built to provide extra traction in winter weather. The tyre compound contains more natural rubber which stops the rubber hardening when it’s cold. This special compound stays soft even in cold dry conditions, therefore providing a better grip on the road where normal tyres lose their elasticity below 7°C.

 

 

3) WINTER TYRES PERFORM WELL EVEN ON WET ROADS... with their wider tread blocks, winter tyres eject water from tyre treads more effectively than normal tyres. The risk of skidding is reduced as pocket-like sipes (cuts) on the tread blocks of winter tyres remove water from icy road surfaces and significantly improve grip, therefore providing a more steady and safe drive.

 

 

Agrigear is the Irish importer of Nokian tyres and stocks an extensive range of Nokian winter tyres.
