FARMFLEX® CONCEPT

FARMFLEX® is a registered trademark owned by OTICO since 1995. The FARMFLEX® concept is based on the use of semi-hollow tires, that offer major benefits in farming applications. These products have now spread all over the world, thanks to OTICO's experience and know-how..


RELIABILITY

Puncture-proof thanks to the semi-hollow structure of FARMFLEX products.


SELF-CLEANING +++

OTICO has developed rubber formulations and wheel shapes to facilitate self-cleaning.


SHOCK ABSORPTION

Rubber shock absorption means more consistent sowing and depth control. Rims and bearings last longer due to better shock absorption .


OTICO QUALITY

Very high quality rubber specially designed for agriculture by OTICO. Continuous improvement of the formulations used to meet increasing demands for longevity.


A COMPREHENSIVE RANGE WITH MORE THAN 500 WHEEL REFERENCES

FARMERS' TESTIMONIALS


Alfred BECHARD
Saskatchewan - CANADA

"I am very impressed about those semi-pneumatic wheels ! FARMFLEX wheels are really kept clean by mean of their tire softness !
More than that, I've had no more punctures like I used to get with my original inflated tires: With my 90" SEEDMASTER fitted with OTICO's FARMFLEX wheels, I've never stopped on my 5,000 hectares! "

Frédéric FABRE
La croix en Brie - FRANCE

" I have been working with my cultivator since 1998. Despite of very high flints proportion my Farmflex wheels are still the original ones and never tore.
I have got a large variety of soils, and, even without wheel scrapers, soil does not stick. I am really 100% satisfied. "

Dan COFFEY
Victoria – AUSTRALIE

" I've been using OTICO 420x100 LB wheels on my HORSCH Sprinter NT for 3 years. I'm very satisfied with these V-shaped wheels and the robustness of OTICO rubber. I used to use inflatable and semi-hollow products by another supplier but their tires ended up splitting too fast. "

" I also have OTICO 440x116 L wheels which are great in wet conditions because they're so supple. "
