AKRON, Ohio (May 16, 2014) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems added the 30.5L-32 26 PR size to its T418 line of forestry tires specifically designed for log skidding service.
Trelleborg’s T418 range is also available in five additional sizes: 23.1-26 16PR, 28L26 20PR, 24.5-32 16PR, 30.5L32 20 and 26 PR.
The company said it’s looking to add more sizes in the future. With maximum cut and tear resistance, the line provides longer tire life under the most severe operating conditions, Trelleborg said, incorporating steel armored plies to protect tire casings against stumps, boulders and rocks.
“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,” Lars Eriksson, product manager forestry tires at Trelleborg Wheel Systems. “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.”
Developing the product range is based largely on the contact Trelleborg has with both customers and manufacturers, Mr. Erikkson said.
“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.”
More information on Trelleborg forestry tires is available on the company’s website.
