Track & Tire Compatibility

It is essential that forestry tires are used with tracks correctly. Only suitable forestry tires as recommended by the manufacturer should be used with tracks.

  • Tires should be designed for use with tracks.

  • Tires should have a high ply rating and be steel fortified and of crossply construction.

  • The tire should be manufactured from a rubber compound suitable for use with tracks.

  • The tire must be fitted to the correct steel reinforced wheel rim for forestry use.

  • The tire must be fitted with the correct recommended inner tube to ensure correct tire support and even inflation.

  • The tire must be inflated to the recommended working pressure for use with tracks. Where no specific recommendations of tire pressure for use with tracks is given by the machine manufacturer, the tires should be inflated to the maximum recommended pressure given.
