Range of harvester tyres expanded

Mitas will unveil its range extension of CHO (Cyclic Harvesting Operation) tyres at the Agritechnica show in Germany in November.

The company will present five new sizes of CHO under the Continental and Mitas brands. Visitors will have the chance to see the 900/60R32 CHO 176A8/173B and 800/70R32 CHO 175A8/172B on display at the Mitas stand, No. B 06, hall 9.

The range extension of CHO tyres proves these tyres are a favourite choice of combine harvester producers, said Mitas sales and marketing director Andrew Mabin, Mitas now offers six sizes of CHO tyres on worldwide markets under the Mitas and Continental brands, added Andrew.

The complete range of CHO tyres unveiled at Agritechnica by Mitas:
900/70R32 CHO 182A8/179B – new
680/85R32 CHO 178A8/175B – new
800/70R38 CHO 178D/181A8 – new
900/60R32 CHO 176A8/173B – new
900/60R38 CHO 178D/181A8 new
800/70R32 CHO 175A8/172B – current

With CHO, Mitas says it has designed extremely capable tyres for large combine harvesters. CHO is capable of higher maximum loads than more conventional tyres and at the same time, the tyre permits higher yields through gentler ground handling in the field and more comfort on the road, explains the company.

In CHO, we designed a tyre capable of carrying more load at a lower tyre pressure, said Mitas head of the automotive engineering unit, Hans-Ulrich Klose.
