Nokian adds to skidder tire line
Nokian Heavy Tyres has introduced a new 35.5L-32 26-ply Forest King TRS LS-2 skidder tire made specifically for the challenging conditions in the United States and Canada.
“As we expand our business in the United States and Canada, we are in the process of adding sizes that are important to that marketplace,” says Vesa Sampakoski, director of marketing. “The 35.5L-32 skidder tire is an important size in the forestry industry and we are thrilled to add this size to our product mix”
The Forest King TRS LS-2 has an advanced cut- and crack-resistant compound for the tread surface and sidewalls. Four wide breakers under the tread area and tire shoulder give the tire protection against punctures.
Its tread pattern offers increased lateral grip and is self-cleaning. Special tire protectors on the tread groove bottom and the tire’s wide lug edge help to resist chain tearing. The tire’s rim protections prevent wood from penetrating between the tire bead and rim flange.
Skidder tire sizes include 23.1-26 16 ply, 28L-26 26 ply, 24.5-32 16 ply, 30.5L-32 20 and 26 ply, and 35.5L-32 26 ply.
