Mitas Adds Sizes to its Flotation Tires

Mitas is adding nine new sizes in the Agriterra 02 and Agriterra 03 flotation radial tires. They will be available in March 2015.
One of the main advantages of Agriterra tires is their low operating costs with a positive impact on fuel consumption, the company says. Steel belt construction ensures higher loads, stability at higher speeds of more than 30 km/h and improves the tire’s puncture resistance. Agriterra’s tread features larger tread voids, improving the self-cleaning properties of the tire. Thanks to the tread pattern, Mitas flotation tires have an 11% larger tread contact area than premium competitors and 22% larger than competitors with a traction type of tread pattern.

A deep tread ensures better tire life. Mitas flotation tires can work at as low a pressure as one bar up to four bars. Better pressure distribution has a positive impact on soil compression. While comparing Agriterra with premium competitors, the permanent compression of soil after crossing of the trailer is 4% lower and even 14% lower compared with competitors with a traction type of tread pattern. Pressure can be adjusted according to application or depending on the type of surface. Agriterra tires are compatible with central inflation systems for easy and quick change of tire pressure.

Agriterra 02 850/50R30.5 IMP will be Mitas’ largest flotation tire. With a diameter of 1.6 meters and a radial steel belt construction, the 850/50R30.5 has a ‘D’ speed category allowing speeds of up to 65 km/h boasting a maximum load of 8,500 kg at 400 kPa.
