Kleber has taken the wraps off the new generation of its popular Topker agricultural tyre range, featuring IF (improved flexion) technology for the first time.
According to the company, the range is specifically designed to improve grip, comfort, and productivity for high horsepower tractors delivering more than 200hp, according to the company.
The new range – comprising five front sizes and six rear sizes – is designed to provide farmers and agricultural contractors with a high-quality IF tyre at a “value-for-money price”.
Kleber tyres – Advantages
Tyres with an IF rating benefit from a sidewall structure that is more flexible. According to the company, this allows operators to carry more load at the same pressure or to run the same load at a lower pressure when compared to standard tyres of the same size.
Commenting, Gordon Brookes, Kleber’s Customer Engineering Support Manager, says: “The Kleber Topker IF is a solution tailored to meet farmers’ needs at a time when modern-day farm machinery is getting bigger and heavier.”
“Being able to lower tyre inflation pressures means the impact on the ground is far less, reducing soil compaction and helping to improve yields.”
Sizes and suitability
The latest additions are designed for all-round use, from small crop farms to large-scale mixed operations.
The new range is immediately available in four key sizes – IF 710/70 R42, IF 600/70 R30, IF 650/85 R38 and IF 800/70 R38.
According to Kleber, a further seven sizes are set to follow throughout 2021, with the range to include options from 28” to 42”.
The full Kleber agricultural line-up includes the Traker, Fitker and Gripker for tractors rated 80 – 200hp, and the Topker and Topker IF for heavier farm work with higher horsepower machines.
They are available across the Michelin Exelagri dealer network in Ireland and the UK.
