Out of the Agrimax tire lineup
The Agrimax range consists of radial tires specifically developed for tractors. This range includes products that respect and protect the most delicate soils, but at the same time feature properties such as strength and high load capacity. Among the Agrimax tire models, one stands out specifically for spreaders.
We are talking about Agrimax RT 600: a perfect mix of load capacity, excellent stability, high traction and gentleness, to ensure the lowest possible impact on the soil. It is ideal for soil tillage operations that require special attention. What makes this tire the perfect solution is its distinct tread pattern, its lower depth, the presence and arrangement of numerous lugs in addition to the particular rounded shape of the shoulder. Five sizes are currently available on the market: 620/75 R 26, 540/65 R 28, 800/65 R 32, 1050/50 R 32 and not least 650/65 R 38.
