Forestry works provide some really tough conditions for the machines that are aimed to operate in there. If you have even been looking for mushrooms or berries in the forest you know that it can be very challenging to just walk through the forest. It is almost impossible to imagine that you could drive through there. The combination of very uneven grounds combined with a slippery surface makes it almost impenetrable.
This is why the equipment that need to work in these conditions have to be very durable and equipped with tires that can provide the grip and stability to get the job done while driving in the forest. When it comes to forestry tires, Nokian Tyres provide some of the worlds best tires for these conditions. Their forestry tires can provide the best foundation for getting the job done, regardless of working or weather conditions. They have to get you through swamps, slippery rocks, steep hills, bushes, felled trees, sharp branches and rocks. Conditions that is not very friendly for the tires. Then you can add bad weather that will include even snow and ice.
When it comes to felling trees and getting them out of the forest, requires that the equipment can get to any place within the forest and that they will have enough stability to perform their work duties. Then they have to be able to get the logs out of the forest to load it on a truck for further transportation by road to either a saw or paper mill.
Depending on the process used you will use a combination of forwarder and harvester to fell the trees and getting them out of the forest or then you have a feller buncher and a skidder. The tires needed on these machines will have some different requirements, but they all need extremely durable tires. Harvester tires and forwarder tires are the most common ones in cut to length forestry, where the tree is felled and cut to required length all by the harvester and is then transported to the landing by the forwarder.
The other method is then by having the feller buncher to fell the tree, which is then dragged to the landing by a skidder. Where the skidder tires have to able to provide sufficient grip to drag a whole tree through the forest to the landing.
