Climbing slippery slopes


A scorching day in the state of Mississippi gradually turns dark and cloudy. Suddenly a heavy afternoon rain starts soaking the steep slopes of forest where Mayerhoff & Sons Trucking Inc. is harvesting timber today. There is a loud roar of the heavy machinery and the smell of diesel in the air as the skidders climb the hillside one after another pulling massive pine trees.


“The problem is that not everyone has these same tyres!”

“When the rain gets really heavy we just have to stop working. The soil type here is such that when it gets wet, the trucks can no more come and get the timber. These slippery slopes are not so easy for us either”, says Caleb Haney.


Caleb is just pulling the day’s last truck (Mack E7-460) off the site due to the pouring rain. The rain doesn’t seem to bother him, though. “I really wouldn’t need to quit just yet because my tires work just fine. The problem is that not everyone has these same tires on their machines”, Caleb grins.

Tight grip – on gravel or mud


Ned Star Mid Timber Harvesting Inc. is about to finish their work on a site. The burning sun of Mississippi has just risen. Despite of the scattered clouds, the temperature often reaches 95 °F (35 °C) even in the morning.


“You’ll need tyres that can handle any terrain”

“You’ll need to watch out for rattlesnakes here. I’ve seen quite a few already. They like to hide out under the branches where there’s cooler. You’ll want to keep your rubber boots on when you’re walking around here”, warns Mason from the cabin of his Tigercat.


Mason is impressed with the versatility of Nokian Logger King. “There have been all kinds of terrains on this site. Some really soft mud here and there, then some very dry gravel up on the hill. You’ll need tyres that can handle any terrain. From my experience, these Nokian tyres feel like they are made for these kind of rough conditions”, he says.
