A good example is the launch of the new VT860, which will be manufactured in Argentina and serve different regions of the international market. It is a new design option developed by Vipal for off-the-road use in the heavy work of compact tractors, such as skid steer loaders.

It has greater resistance to damage caused by sharp objects, common in off-the-road conditions, and blocks designed to provides excellent mileage performance in extreme driving conditions. Also has the M+S marking, which guarantees a great performance in snow and mud conditions and the design also provides the self-cleaning of the tread.
