Firestone Introduces New Forestry Tires
The Firestone Forestry Special tire is available in sizes 16.9-24 to 35.5L32 through qualified service dealers.
Bridgestone has announced that two sizes (30.5L32 32PR and DH35.5LB32 30PR) of its Firestone Forestry Special tire now offer increased load capacity. The Firestone Forestry Special tire is designed to meet the severe service for forestry applications, which includes forestry skidders, feller bunchers and forwarders.
“Forestry equipment manufacturers continue to develop larger and heavier equipment to handle the increased stress of harsh environments,” said Tony Orlando, president, Firestone Ag, Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations. “With this in mind, we have enhanced our Firestone Forestry Special tire to support even heavier loads and deliver trusted performance on the toughest terrain.”
Features of these two tire sizes include:
– Increased carrying capacity for high-horsepower machines and heavy loads.
– A cut-resistant compound that provides additional protection against cuts, snags and tears.
– Steel belts that offer puncture resistance.
– A heavy-duty bead and rim protector that helps keep out debris.
