There may be already a great deal of data on the aspect of agricultural tyres and but there may be extra deliberate with the introduction of the cyclic subject operation or CFO marking.

This newest classification will point out that the tyre can transcend the bounds already denoted by the IF (elevated flexion) and VF (very excessive flexion) markings, which themselves point out the power to deal with a 20% improve and 40% improve in loading at regular stress, or the tractors rated most loading with the pressures lowered by the identical quantities.

Excessive flexion tyres and past

Tyres carrying the CFO mark will be capable of carry as much as 55% additional weight, or the tractor’s most weight at a stress discount of as much as 55%.

The CFO marking will seem after the nominal diameter of the rim within the case of IF or VF drive-wheel tyres. It particularly identifies tyres developed for agricultural equipment employed in cyclical subject operations.

BKT claims that a variety of subject operations can profit from the brand new CFO tyres

Tyres able to assembly these increased limits are able to deforming to a better diploma and so create a bigger footprint.

They’re doubtless for use in conditions the place the loading can differ, or it’s advantageous to function at a lowered stress.

Mix harvesters are one instance given by BKT. When harvesting they are going to expertise a big distinction in weight relying on how full the tank is.

CFO tyres will allow them to function with the tyres set at a decrease stress, serving to to scale back soil compaction because the grain tank fills.

BKT tyres to hold CFO ranking

BKT has reviewed its vary and has determined that a number of merchandise are strong sufficient to work at this newly categorised lowered stress ranking.

Amongst these is Agrimax Pressure, which the corporate claims is one among its most hottest merchandise. It now boasts 21 IF sizes with the CFO marking.

The Agrimax V-Flecto might be one of many first tyres to hold the brand new ranking

BKT tells us that it has been specifically developed for mix harvesters or high-power tractors for harvesting, transport, and tillage operations.

Two different product traces suited to harvesting operations which can profit from improved load capability are Agrimax Teris and Agrimax RT 600, each of which can be found in six IF sizes with CFO marking.

The ultimate BKT product which good points from the CFO marking is Agrimax V-Flecto in two VF sizes. This range-topping tyre is designed to optimise the efficiency of high-power, next-generation tractors.
