ATG @ FIMA 2016

New VF tyre for sprayers | New IF tyre for combine harvesters, tractors and large self-propelled liquid manure spreaders & tankers


16.02.2016 | Halsteren

ATG will showcase its new VF tyre for sprayers, the Alliance 354 AGRIFLEX+. Large volume tyre 378 AgriStar XL will be on display, as will be Alliance 380 VF from the the flotation & agri-transport. Also the popular Alliance 550 MULTIUSE steel belted radial with be showcased. The innovative Garden-Pro R3+ utility tractor tyre and Hulk L-5 skidsteer tyres will represent the Galaxy brand.

ATG, a leading Off-Highway Tyre (OHT) manufacturer, announces the launch of new products in the flotation & agri-transport category to further strengthen its leadership in the OHT segment. These product innovations include the VF (Very High Flexion) tyre in the popular 380 tread design. Commenting on the new product, Yogesh Mahansaria, CEO of ATG, stated: “With its leadership position in the flotation radial tyre category, Alliance is geared to meet the changing trends and growing requirements of the agri-transport segment. We thus have introduced three key sizes which will contribute to the ever increasing performance that is expected from agricultural machines.”


ALLIANCE 354 AGRIFLEX VF (Very High Flexion) – VF 480/95R50.
354 AGRIFLEX+ (VF) series was primarily developed for large capacity self-propelled sprayers and row crop tractors. These tyres are characterised by their R-1W directional lug that was specifically designed to provide excellent grip on soft surfaces. 354 AGRIFLEX+ tyres offer longer tread life, higher comfort, and lower rolling resistance during road transport when compared to standard radial tyres. The larger footprint also provides effective traction and minimises soil compaction. The steel belted carcass structure ensures uniform ground pressure distribution whilst providing outstanding puncture protection.

354 AGRIFLEX+ has a ‘D’ speed rating and is approved for road speeds as high as 65kph. This is ideal for modern high capacity, high speed self-propelled sprayers of large farms or contractors which often have to cover long distances between fields and supply facilities. “These tyres allow for higher tyre deflection and enable farmers and contractors to increase their productivity whilst lowering operating costs. The tyres can either carry 40% more load with the same air pressure as conventional radials or require 40% lower inflation pressure for the same load capacity”, says Dr. George Ronai from ATG’s R&D team.


The Alliance AGRISTAR XL large volume series was specifically developed for the application on high HP tractors and combine harvesters. They could also be used on big wagons and spreaders. Developed with a clear focus on modern and efficient machines which are used in agriculture today, the high performance AGRISTAR XL is the perfect match for such machines. AGRISTAR XL’s specific tread pattern and construction makes the tyre particularly suitable for a wide range of applications. The R-1W tread pattern of the tyre also provides high traction and efficient self-cleaning properties in the field.

Steel belts reinforce the strong textile casing of the tyre: This guarantees stable tyre dimensions which result in a comfortable and smooth ride and excellent puncture protection. The large footprint of the Agristar XL lowers soil compaction whilst the special wear resistant rubber compound used in the tread provides the tyre with a longer working life. The 378 AGRISTAR XL is available with the same tread design for different aspect ratios, making it ideal for today’s high HP tractors which use tyres of different aspect ratios on front and rear axles to maximise tyre volume.


ALLIANCE 380 VF Flotation Radial - VF 650/55R26.5.
The ability to carry large payloads quickly and soil-conserving is one of the key prerequisites for agricultural tyres. As pioneer and leader in agri-transport flotation radial tyres, ATG’s Alliance brand therefore has a large portfolio of tyres for agricultural transport and other uses. One of the innovative products presented in 2015, the 380 VF pattern in size 650/55R26.5, can either carry up to 40% more load compared to its standard flotation variant with the same air pressure or the same load with a 30% lower inflation pressure, which in turn allows for markedly better soil conservation. The 380VF offers a 25% larger footprint when compared to its conventional radial variant, thus causing significantly lower soil compaction. This tyre was developed for agricultural transport vehicles: for exceptional flotation, low ground pressure, and minimum soil compaction.


ALLIANCE 550 MULTIUSE – 710/70R42: a synonym for versatility in daily practice!
Also on display will be the Alliance 550 MULTIUSE tyre series. Engineered for tough applications on machines such as industrial or municipality tractors, specialised farm equipment, agro-industrial applications and a wide range of other applications, the 550 MULTIUSE series provides uncompromising performance. These steel belted radial tyres are ideally suited for tractors and machines that have multiple roles to play throughout a year. This is very apparent in case of machines used in a municipality for a broad range of tasks including winter services.


Galaxy products


ATG will also showcase Galaxy products during FIMA exhibitions. ATG’s Galaxy brand offers application specific purpose built tyres for a wide range of applications that include machines such as earth movers, telehandlers, excavators, backhoe loaders, industrial tractors and machinery as well as utility tractors and turf equipment. In particular Garden Pro and Hulk L5 will be protagonists during the Spanish event.



Galaxy Garden Pro 420/70R24

The new Galaxy Garden Pro is the first ever specialty tyre for compact garden and utility tractors which provides an all-in-one type design, making these tyres suitable for all kinds of light duty applications in landscaping, vineyards, and gardens, for example. The Galaxy Garden Pro is not only very cost competitive, but also offers very high value for money. In addition to being gentle to turf and soil due to superior flotation characteristics, due to its radial construction, these tyres also offers excellent self-cleaning characteristics, a smooth ride and low wear on hard surfaces, and thus optimum performance under a wide range of operating conditions. This is a superior choice due to its outstanding cost-effectiveness, durability on hard surfaces and excellent flotation characteristics. The Galaxy Garden Pro is available in various sizes for front and rear axles of compact utility tractors and turf equipment.


Galaxy Hulk L-5 12-16.5

The Hulk L-5 is a class leading skidsteer tyre. It has the highest tread depth in its class and is ideal for severe duty applications. The Hulk provides excellent traction on any kind of surface. Its unique block type tread design promote efficient self-cleaning and grip. Due to its deep tread depth and solid to void ratio, the Hulk L-5 will provide extraordinary hours of service and reduces downtime due to cuts and punctures.
