Nokian Heavy Tyres offers a durable forestry tire customized for cut-to-length harvesters. The Nokian Forest King F 710/45-26.5 cross-ply for harvesters features a ply rate of 24, suitable for demanding forest use. A load-bearing capacity of 8000 kg (17,640 lb) corresponds to 4 m3 (13 ft3) of pinewood harvested by six- and eight-wheeled forestry machines. Full loads safely can be transported despite the species or humidity of the wood, and strong material solutions enable durability, high operating pressure, and improved traction. Other tire benefits include a wide tread strong at the shoulders to improve safety and lower surface pressure for light mobility and soft contact with undergrowth. Straight sidewalls prevent damage, and the groove profile increases cleaning properties. Tracks and chains fit properly and operate efficiently in wet, poor grip conditions.
