Prague, June 17, 2021 – The Mitas HC (High Capacity) radial tire range expands its offering with the new HC 3000 R tire. Boasting the largest-ever tire in the Mitas HC range – the VF 1000/65R32 CFO – the HC 3000 R tire features Very High Flexion (VF) technology and rounded shoulders, denoted by the R in its name.
Unlike other tires in the Mitas HC range that are primarily used on combine harvesters, the new HC 3000 R tire is designed for self-propelled slurry tankers. “We developed this new tire in response to market demand for a high-load capacity tire for slurry tankers, equipping it with a new and soil-friendly tread pattern,” explains Pavel Kott, Product Manager for Mitas agricultural tires.
High-load capacity and gentle ground handling, especially when turning in fields or on grassland, are the main advantages of the HC 3000 R. The tire features a new rounded shoulder design and flexible sidewalls reinforced with VF construction.
Thanks to the innovative casing structure, the tires have up to 40% higher load capacity than a standard tire, no matter the speed. This makes the HC 3000 R great for cyclical field operations (CFO) in which the load on the machine frequently changes.
As the tires can be used at lower inflation pressure, HC 3000 R tires also have excellent traction for reduced slippage, which results in better fuel economy and productivity. “These features provide great benefits from the economic perspective and reducing environmental impact,” adds Kott.
