*Prague, November 2, 2016 *– At the EIMA fair in Bologna, Mitas, part of Trelleborg Group, will be showcasing the highlights from its agricultural range including Agriterra flotation tyres, VF HC 2000 tyres for high horsepower tractors, municipal and tractor tyres. From November 9 to 13 at stand A1 in Hall 14, Mitas will display key innovations from its market-leading range of specialist tyres.
Pavel Kott, product manager for Mitas agricultural tyres, said: “One of the highlights of our presence at the EIMA fair is definitely Agriterra flotation tyres. Designed to address the specific needs of farmers, Mitas Agriterra tyres can bring them higher yields thanks to lower soil compaction caused by flotation tyre during field operation.”
Steel-belt construction agricultural tyre
One of the main advantages of Agriterra flotation tyres is their low operating costs with a positive impact on fuel consumption. Steel-belt construction ensures higher load capabilities, stability at elevated speeds of more than 30 kilometers per hour and improved puncture resistance. The tyre’s tread features larger voids, improving its self-cleaning properties. Thanks to the well-designed tread pattern, Mitas flotation tyres have an 11% larger footprint than other premium competitors and 22% larger than competitors using a traction-type tread pattern. Mitas offers 14 variations of flotation radial tyres.
Kott added: “We understand the complexity of work in agriculture, and besides reliable tyres we want to offer farmers something to ease their routine. That is why we developed a mobile app for the correct setting of tyre pressure.”
At EIMA, Mitas will introduce a new mobile tyre pressure app for Android and iOS devices as well as for Windows phones. The new app will allow farmers to easily find the right pressure for their tyres to achieve the best results in the field and on the road. More information will follow prior to the EIMA fair.
Other products on show will include:
**High horsepower tractor tyre **
Mitas VF HC 2000 tyres are designed for high horsepower tractors and the range now offers four sizes with future expansion planned. The very high flexion tyre's main advantage is maintaining constant tyre pressure at any speed. The VF's larger footprint leads to less soil compaction and increased mobility under difficult and wet soil conditions. At its stand A1 in hall 14, Mitas will display the VF 710/70R42 HC2000.
High capacity in the 70 profile segment
Mitas HC 70 represents a new approach to the 70 profile segment bringing to the market a high-performance tyre developed for tractors of up to 180 hp. The HC 70 offers improved load capacity, gentler ground handling and driving comfort. The Mitas HC 70 is adaptable, which makes it suitable for use in a wide range of operating conditions. At EIMA fair Mitas will display the 480/70R34 HC70.
Municipal tyres for various applications
Mitas High Capacity Municipal (HCM) tyres are designed for municipal use. They are a universal tyre suitable for work on various terrains and for mounting on different machines in a number of applications. A unique cascade tread lug design ensures outstanding traction in snow, muddy and wet conditions while providing optimal self-cleaning properties. Mitas now offers five sizes of HCM tyres: 400/80R28, 440/80R24, 440/80R28, 480/80R38 and the new 540/80R38 which is to be seen at Mitas stand during the Bologna fair.
