Mitas tyre applications

Radial tyre technology delivers substantial benefits to the agricultural industry. The properties of radial tyres help farmers achieve better productivity, efficiency and higher yield.

Tyre construction

Bias (diagonal, cross-ply) tyre
A pneumatic tyre in which the ply cords extend to the beads and are laid at alternate angles less than 90° to the centre line of the tread.

Agricultural applications – Radial Tyres

We offer a wide range of tyres for almost every piece of equipment and application – from highhorsepower tractors to massive harvesters, from field preparation to harvest.

Our extensive line of radial agricultural tyres offers solutions to all your needs, from our High Capacity Tyres (HC) and Super Flexion Tyres (SFT) series or our wide footprint HC 70 and AC 65 series tyres to our AC 85 and AC 90 series for row-crop applications.

The development of the Silent Speed Tyres (SST), connects the outstanding field characteristics of a 65 series wide tyre with high comfort. Because with the SST the noise level in the operator‘s cab is reduced to a minimum. The High Capacity Tyres (HC) and Super Flexion Tyres (SFT) were developed primarily for powerful machines with over 180 hp. The extremely large volume of air ensures gentle ground handling when working with heavy loads. The new harvester tyres HC 3000 and SFT CHO have been designed as an extremely powerful 14 tyres for big combine harvesters. HC 3000 and SFT CHO are capable of higher maximum loads; at the same time the tyre permits gentler ground handling in the field and more comfort on the road. For tractors with up to 200 hp, the Mitas range of radial tyres offers wide choice of all-rounders. The 85 series standard radial AC 85 is ideally suited for wide-ranging applications in the field and on the road. The HC 70 the new 70 series wide tyre, has higher load capacities than normally available in the 70 series segment; it therefore offers gentler ground handling and can carry very heavy loads. The AC 65 is a wide tyre with a 65% aspect ratio and is the ideal choice in this tractor segment, where it‘s about gentle ground handling and the ability to transport heavy loads, as well as traction and grassland suitability. The AC 70 G is the acknowledged grassland tyre in Mitas range. The AC 70 T is particularly suited for heavy field work. In the smaller sizes it has proved itself in vine cultivation and fruit growing

“L” series type tyres

“L” series type tyres are used on all size loaders and dozers in off-road applications. Most loader type tyres, because of their extremely heavy construction, are limited to very low speeds and very short haul distances, 10km/h and 250 m maximum.

“L” series tyres are categorized by number code, type and tread depth.

Below are examples of Mitas “L” Series tyres

The letter designation and number code is found on the sidewalls of tyres. The L-2 traction design tyre gives maximum traction in sand and soft soil conditions. The L-3 rock design offers good traction and rock resistance in general purpose loader operations.

Mitas has also developed comparison ratings for “L” series type tyres. Note: The numbers are relative ratings with the L-3 tyre rated at 100. For example, the L-2 tyre has 20 % better traction than the L-3. Certain tyre construction features and applications can affect these ratings.

The data below could vary from operation and / or from size to size of tyre.
