Mitas will roll out five new sizes for its CHO (cyclic harvesting operation) tires during the upcoming Agritechnica 2013 fair in Hannover, Germany.
“The range extension of CHO tires proves these tires are a favorite choice of combine harvester producers,” said Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ sales and marketing director.
Unveiled under the Continental and Mitas brands, were five additional sizes: 900/70R32 CHO 182A8/179B; 680/85R32 CHO 178A8/175B; 800/70R38 CHO 178D/181A8; 900/60R32 CHO 176A8/173B; and 900/60R38 CHO 178D/181A8. This makes the sixth size in the CHO harvester tire, which is also available in 800/70R32 CHO 175A8/172B.
The CHO tires are designed to provide higher maximum loads than conventional tires, while providing gentler ground handling in the field, the company said.
