Seregno, Italy – BKT officially unveils POWERTRAILER SR 331, the all steel radial tire, which has been announced a few months ago and is taking the field among the company’s flagship products.

POWERTRAILER SR 331 is the novelty the agricultural world has been waiting for: a solution specifically designed to meet the evolving needs that are typical of trailer and tanker transport applications. It is indeed particularly suitable for road transport operations, ensuring excellent performance and efficient operations.

"POWERTRAILER SR 331 is a highly innovative and superb solution in terms of performance, especially on the road, exceeding our expectations and showcasing BKT’s commitment to providing high-quality products. By means of this new tire, we want to ensure a superior level of the overall end-user experience. In fact, compared to similar solutions available on the market, POWERTRAILER SR 331 distinguishes itself for its durability and strength, but it actually stands out as a synonym for fuel economy. This is a positive contribution in favor of the environment," Piero Torassa, Field Engineering Manager at BKT, said.

This tire features also good flotation properties that help reduce soil compaction by preventing soil damage and preserving its structure. Meanwhile, the lower rolling resistance ensures savings in fuel consumption and, as a result, in costs.

Another key feature of POWERTRAILER SR 331 is its excellent stability, even at high speeds, during the most demanding handling situations, such as cornering or traffic circles where significant weight transfer occurs. Moreover, the all-steel construction ensures excellent transportation performance even at high load capacities, while the special sidewall rib provides excellent protection against impacts and tire rubbing effects. In addition, the hexagonal bead with chafer reinforcement makes sure that the tire perfectly fits to the rim.

Also not to be underestimated are the operator’s advantages, who, thanks to the multi-block tread design, can benefit from excellent driving comfort and smooth roadability, even in wet conditions. Besides, the tread design ensures uniform wear, reducing tractor-induced vibration phenomena.
