Nokian Tyres Attends Swedish Forestry Expo in Solvalla

Nokian Tyres in Sweden

On the verge of summer, Swedish Forestry Expo is right around the corner and Nokian Tyres will be attending and at stand C18 where they will have on display a wide range of offerings from reliable all-season tyres to specialised ones for forestry work.

Swedish Forestry Expo on the Horizon for Nokian Tyres

Tyres must be sturdy and well-designed to prevent rim slipping in a dense forest. They need to offer great traction and, in many cases, good support for tracks and chains. On top of that, the timber must be harvested without harming the soil. On display Nokian Tyres have products that are well-equipped to tackle any forestry challenge according to the manufacturer.

In forests the danger may come in the form of sharp rocks and tree stumps. It may be the deep slopes that demand some extra grip from your tyres. For that the manufacturer is displaying its variety of Nokian Tyres Forest King tyres. They all have great shielding against puncture damage and deliver good traction to keep your vehicle moving safely, eco-friendly and steadily on uneven surfaces.

Nokian Tyres Forest King TRS 2+ for 6-wheel forwarders and harvesters is a prime example of their soil-friendly tyres. With or without tracks, it offers good traction, and due to its widest possible ground contact, it manages to do little to no harm to soil beneath.

Besides the Forest King product line, their forestry products range from Nokian Tyres TR Forest 2, which is a reliable traction tyre that offers good grip and stability for light and medium-weight forestry tractors, all the way to the heavyweight class of Nokian Tyres Tractor King, which is an innovative tractor tyre for the strongest tractors and demanding terrains in forestry, earthmoving and road construction.

When in need of cost-efficient and reliable tyres for most forestry work, Nokian Tyres Nordman Forest tyres might well be the best bang for one’s buck which are being presented at the expo in Solvalla. While not the top-of-the-line offering in theircatalogue, they share most of their properties with higher-end Forest King product. With their good cut and puncture resistance, high load-bearing capacity and good wear resistance, they are ideal replacement tyres for used forestry equipment.

Nokian Tyres R-Truck product family consists of tyres designed to work both on-road and off-road applications. That makes them a good choice for timber transport, earthmoving and other applications where the tyre must work comfortably on a variety of surfaces. Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 and F2, also available at the expo, are heavy tyres best suited for demanding winter conditions. With their decent grip on ice and traction on snow Hakkapeliitta Truck E2 and F2 are winter tyres that can ease your stress when peace of mind is needed. They offer safe kilometres for transports, even when the roads are in poor shape. While these tyres may not be solely for forestry working, they are essential for carrying timber from the forest, on the road, to the destination efficiently and in time – even in midst of the harshest winter.


All these products will be on display at the Swedish Forestry Expo at the start of June.
