BKT releases new forestry tires


Off-highway tire manufacturer BKT has launched four new forestry product lines: Forestech, FS 216, TR 678 and F 240.

The Forestech tire has high strength and resistance properties, making it deal for moving through forests, even under the toughest operating conditions. Its sturdy bead and the reinforced shoulder area ensure puncture resistance. It is available on the market in three different sizes: 600/55 – 26.5, 710/45 – 26.5 and 750/55 – 26.5. 

The FS 216 tire is cut- and tear-resistant, which makes it ideal not only for forwarders, but also for skidders. Its strengths are durability, a reinforced tread and high puncture resistance, top self-cleaning properties and a high load capacity.

It is available in eight different sizes, each of them either in steel-belted or aramid-belted versions: 18.4 – 26; 23.1 – 26; 28L – 26; 18.4 – 30; 24.5 – 32; 30.5L – 32; DH 35.5L – 32; and 18.4 – 34.
