Michelin at Agritechnica 2015

Kleber in the high power tractor sector. New sizes of Kleber Topker presented at Agritechnica 2015.

Kleber, the day-to-day ally of farmers… Kleber, a brand known for its simplicity, close relations and trust factor… Kleber has once again strengthened its ties with users by announcing the launch of two new pairs of tyres at Agritechnica 2015: 2.05m and 1.95m for high power tractors, up to 280 hp, which are popular on the European market. Around 14,000 tractors between 180 and 250 hp, with tyres corresponding to the two new dimensional pairs of Kleber, were sold in 2014 in Western Europe.

- 2.05m: the new Kleber Topker 710/70 R42 & 600/70 R30 tyre pair
- 1.95m: the new Kleber Topker 710/70 R38 tyre combined with the existing 600/65 R28 tyre

These new tyres are highly multi-functional, a real asset in works. With their new tread pattern, these tyres bring farmers:

Optimised traction, particularly on loose or wet ground saving on working time. The extended inter-bar space and massive shoulders improve ground anchorage. The flat profile optimises the surface area in contact with the ground.
Self-cleaning. The new and protruding inter-studs kick earth out more easily.
A longer life cycle both on roads and in the fields. This benefit is based on the pyramid structure of the tread bars. The rigid central rubber tread block ensures precision and guides high power tractors.

Kleber, a long-standing commitment to farmers

The plant of the Société Française Goodrich is set up at Colombes, and manufactured its first tyre on 8 December 1911.

At the end of the Second World War, the company head office is set up in Paris, avenue Kléber. The name is changed to Kleber-Colombes. A new logo is launched with the new name.

Launch of the 1st farming tyre: Kleber meets success head-on. That year, Kleber's range of farming tyres includes 18 dimensions.

Kleber revolutionises the world of agricultural tyres by launching the first-ever tubeless tyre. The company has a serious lead over other manufacturers for this technology.

Launch of the 1st radial farming tyre by Kleber “Le Super Tracsol”. Kleber establishes its position as the European leader in farming tyres with this launch.

The Michelin group acquires Kleber.

Kleber inner tubes are 100% Butyl.

The Kleber Topker range is fitted on high power tractors. The story continues and other new features are expected in 2016 for Kleber…
