Kleber has launched a new generation of its popular Topker agricultural tyre range, featuring IF (improved flexion) technology for the first time.
Specifically designed to improve grip, comfort and productivity for high horsepower tractors delivering more than 200hp, 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.
Tyres with an IF rating benefit from a sidewall structure which is more flexible – allowing 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.”
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. 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.
