Nokian extends all-season capabilities of compact tractors with six new tyre sizes
Since its introduction some five years ago, the block-patterned Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI tractor tyre has gained a reputation for being a true all-season tyre with superior winter capabilities.
The size range has been gradually expanded to fill the needs of different kinds of contractors. The latest addition to the Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI range are six new sizes made specially for compact tractors and other compact machinery.
Nordic all-season tires must face a truly wide range of temperatures and driving conditions through the course of a year. From hot tarmac to icy roads, Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI offers a superior all-season performance with unsurpassed winter properties. This versatility has made it a favourite among contractors that have varying jobs in different seasons.
“The winter performance is where Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI really stands out”, says Tero Saari, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres. “The tyre has no problem even in the most demanding snow removal – but it does not compromise the summer properties, either.”
Because of its block pattern and radial structure, Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI offers outstanding speed and comfort on the road transports. This makes modern, versatile contracting work smoother and faster.
“The users have reported that the noise level and vibrations have reduced compared to typical lug-patterned tyres”, says Tero Saari. “This means they can drive faster and more comfortably, which is good for job ergonomics.”
The productive choice
The proof of any tractor tyre are the real challenges of everyday contracting work. This is where Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI boosts the working efficiency as well as brings savings.
“The predictable handling in all conditions translates to better productivity”, Tero Saari says. “The lower rolling resistance saves fuel, while the tire’s quiet noise level and vibrations make road transports snappier.”
Six new sizes
In addition to 20 sizes already in production, Nokian Hakkapeliitta TRI is now available in sizes 360/70R20, 480/80R30, 340/80R24, 440/80R30, 300/80R24 and 360/80R28. These sizes make the superior all-season capabilities available to compact tractors operating in varying weather conditions.
“The capabilities of compact tractors are in many ways directly linked to their tyres”, Tero Saari says. “A premium all-season tire can unlock their potential in many kinds of work.”
