Trelleborg Wheel Systems has added a new size in its T418 line of forestry tires.

Designed for log skidding service, the tire offers maximum cut and tear resistance, provides long tire life under the most severe operating conditions, and incorporates steel armored plies to protect tire casings against stumps, boulders and rocks.

With the release of the 30.5L-32 26 PR size in Trelleborg’s T418 range, five sizes are now available including 23.1-26 16PR – 28L26 20PR – 24.5-32 16PR – 30.5L32 20 and 26 PR. More sizes will be added in the future, the company notes.

Lars Eriksson, product manager, forestry tires, says: "We are investing heavily in developing our range of forestry tires, upgrading the load capacity of the existing range and are also introducing new products. Our focus is on maximum customer benefit in terms of the optimal balance between important tire properties, such as durability, service life and traction, with consistent ground care and comfort.

"Development of our product range is based largely on the continuous contact we have with customers and manufacturers. Trelleborg's strong customer focus requires investment in a global presence. This means that we can enjoy closer contact with our customers and can offer them complete solutions, with tires, rims and tubes adapted for forestry use.”

Together with the T418 line, designed for full tree operations, Trelleborg also offers the Twin Forestry T422 and T428 designed for CTL (cut-to-length) operations and the T410 Agro Forest, an R-1W bias line for tractors used both in forestry and in difficult field conditions. In addition, Trelleborg offers forestry tire rims capable of coping with extreme working conditions and inner tubes specially developed for forestry use, says the company.
