The tyres have soil-friendly grip, durability and excellent support for chains and tracks.
Avoiding damage to the soil has become more and more important in forestry work all around the world. At the same time, mechanised harvesting of timber must be carried out even on the most challenging terrain, making the use of chains or tracks more common. The new Nokian Forest King TRS 2+ tyres are designed to provide the widest possible ground contact, providing good traction without tracks as well as improved support for chains and tracks.
For harvesting operations, stability is an important feature for a tyre. Good tyres give the work a solid foundation, improving precision and efficiency. The Nokian Forest King TRS 2+ features a 24PR bias structure that’s very efficient in absorbing swings and shocks. For long operating life, the Nokian Forest King TRS 2+ tyres have extra rubber on the shoulder area. The tread pattern itself is protected with steel reinforcements. These add to excellent cut and puncture resistance, making the tyre a safe choice for the most demanding terrain as well.
When designing the Nokian Forest King TRS 2+ tyre, special attention was paid to best possible track support. The tyre’s deep tread pattern with track grooves and extra wing bars create optimal surface for track contact, minimising track slipping and tyre damage. For use without chains or tracks, the tyre features sharp rib edges, extra wing bars and wide contact area to maximise grip even on demanding terrain. This enables maximal grip with minimal damage to the soil.
An important economical factor for both OEM and replacement tyre users is that the new Nokian Forest King TRS 2+ maintains backwards compatibility with Nokian Forest Rider components such as chains, tracks, tubes and rims. The 600/65-34, the 710/55-34 and the 710/70-34 sizes will be available from the end of 2019. Source
