BKT launches the “Agriforce BK T71”, the first of a brand-new series of BKT rubber tracks for the farming sector and, in this case, particularly for high-power tractors employed in soil tillage and row crop applications.
BKT is aware that under some circumstances depending on usage and goals, tracks can be more functional compared to tires. This is why the company has decided to further extend its already large product range by adding a new product category. The overall advantage of rubber tracks enhances productivity and performance, since track-driven tractors can run at higher speeds in the fields at the same power and show increased fuel efficiency.
Many are the distinctive features of this rubber track, making it a product that is truly original and one of its kind. First of all, the tread of Agriforce BK T71 is made of a high-performance compound, that offers the advantage of extraordinary resistance against cuts, tear and wear. The optimized tread pattern provides excellent traction and ride comfort, whilst the drive lugs of the positive drive system have an optimized shape to ensure extraordinary flexibility. In addition, the track carcass has been reinforced with four layers of high-tensile steel cords. Thanks to these features, Agriforce BK T71 offers the right balance between high dimensional stability and flexibility to ensure high durability.
The new Agriforce BK T71 is launched on the market in size 18″ x 6″ x 44. Additional four size versions are already under development.
Like all BKT products, this novelty stems from the dialog with users, their feedback and needs, but it is also a result of BKT’s commitment to develop a rich and specialized product portfolio for any requirements.
For this reason, the company has invested into the setup of a new specific track manufacturing plan on the Bhuj production site in India.
The new Agriforce BK T71 is indeed the first of a long series of tracks already scheduled in BKT’s development plan. The company is working on the upcoming release of new rubber tracks not only for agriculture but also the construction sector.
Will BKT produce this “Rubber for Tracks” in USA or North America in the short to mid-term future?
