Forestry tyres for professional use
One of the top products for which the company is best known is the radial Nokian Forest Rider forestry tyre, offering maximal stability, puncture- and cut-resistance, and excellent traction properties. The Nokian Forest King F is a sturdy forestry tyre that is designed to have a high carrying capacity, bearing its load effortlessly and reliably over varying forest terrain. Nokian Heavy Tyres forestry tyres are known for a high quality that provides the user with many operating hours and reliable operation in the demanding conditions of timber-harvesting.
Tractors used for forest work
Nokian Heavy Tyres has used its popular forestry tyres as a starting point for developing different models for tractors that are used partially or mainly for forest work. These special tyres have achieved a softer and more pleasant driving response than traditional forestry tyres provide, both in forests and on harder ground.
The pioneer knows the forest and the machines
A forestry machine needs to be reliable and withstand long and demanding operation. The forestry tyre must not be a weak link in the chain in comparison with the rest of the machine; the tyre must guarantee reliable and trouble-free operation. In the manufacture of all Nokian Heavy Tyres forestry tyres, special attention has been paid to puncture- and cut-resistance. The possibility of a puncture has been reduced, which, in turn, helps reduce unwanted interruptions.
Top products meet the requirements
There are several options in selection of a forestry tyre for a felling machine. The Nokian Forest Rider provides excellent traction and grip even on slippery and difficult roads. The first functional radial forestry tyre in the world, the Forest Rider features a larger area of contact with the ground, improving both the grip and the driving comfort.
The Nokian Forest King F with its high carrying capacity is an extremely stable, easily cleaned forestry tyre for felling and loading machines. Its straight, sturdy sides and durable tread work excellently with tracks. Even without tracks, this forestry tyre holds and carries well. The Nokian Forest King tyre family provides solidly functional forestry tyres also for skidders and forest tractors. These traction tyres combine grip and cleanability, great carrying capacity, puncture-resistance, and a sturdy structure.
The forestry tyre carries the load of a timber trailer
A trailer tyre must be hassle-free and reliable. Nokian ELS tyres are excellent as forest machine tyres but also for agricultural use. In forest use, the tyre carries even greater loads, in more demanding terrain conditions. Puncture- and cut-resistance and the ability to be cleaned with ease are essential for a trailer tyre. The forest tyres developed for timber trailers are also suitable for pincher roll use.
Forest machine tyres, rims, and support from the same address
Nokian Heavy Tyres offers a continuous service chain for the forest tyre user. Flexibility and speed are crucial parts of the service chain, which supports concentrating on specialist product areas. In product development, user experiences are gathered from forest machine users and developed into new innovations. The rim acquisition, installation, and delivery of the ready package for the customer are also included in the service chain. Our technical customer service doesn’t operate only by telephone and e-mail – if necessary, we can put our boots on and visit the customer, looking at the forestry machine and discussing and verifying functionality, operation, and the operating environment of the forestry tyre.
