Nokian Expands Tractor Tyre Range
The seasonal maintenance work in built environment is often very intense and carried out on a tight schedule. Nokian Tyres has made Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tractor tyre range for this purpose – to tune up the level of efficiency, safety and ergonomics of tractor-based maintenance operations in widely varying conditions.
“As more and more utility tractors are equipped with the wide-profile 65-tyres, we wanted to make the excellent properties of our Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tractor tyre available for every contractor,” says Tero Saari, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “That’s why we have extended the size range further to 65-series in 28” and 38”.
In built environment, mid-sized utility tractors are the tools of choice for a variety of different maintenance works because of their agility and efficiency. And when the winters are snowy and roads icy, the tyres must be first rate.
The Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tyre profile has some unique features with many advantages. The unique way the Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tractor tyre grips to the driving surface offers optimal performance for the maintenance work carried out in built environment. The better power transfer, steering response, directional stability, braking efficiency and high load-bearing capacity reduce stress around the year by making the handling more predictable and driving more comfortable, stable and safer. In addition, the tyre’s long service life and low rolling resistance help to save costs.
In addition to three 65-series tyres already in production, the new 540/65R28 and 650/65R38 tyre sizes are tailored for utility tractors.
“The powerful utility tractor lends itself to many kinds of work, and with a premium tyre it can work even more efficiently”, Tero Saari says. “These days, more and more contractors realise how the choice of tyres can make a big difference in how smoothly a working day in the tractor’s cabin goes.”
