Yokohama Off-Highway Tires present at Interforst / Alliance 643 Forestar III and 644 Forestar III receive official approval of Olofsfors, Clarks and Pewag as leading track manufacturers / Alliance 344 ELIT to boost soil protection in forestry

Yokohama Off-Highway Tires (YOHT) presented the Alliance brand’s high performance forestry tires at Interforst, the leading international fair on forestry and forestry machinery. The presentation included the official approval of Olofsfors, Clarks and Pewag as important track manufactures for their tracks to be mounted and used on Alliance 643 Forestar III and Alliance 644 Forestar III tires. “Tracks further add to the already highly impressive grip and flotation characteristics of our Forestar III tire portfolio, thus combining positive effects of tires and tracks to an almost unbeatable performance. Be it steep terrain or wet and soft ground – this combination offers massive grip, low ground disturbance and low soil compaction”, explains Angelo Noronha, President Europe at ‎Yokohama Off-Highway Tires.

Alliance 643 and 644 Forestar III tire portfolio

Both the Alliance 643 Forestar III and the Alliance 644 Forestar III feature an improved nylon-steel-belted construction and reinforced hexagonal bead technology, thus ensuring excellent puncture resistance, high load carrying capacity and preventing rim slippage. The unique tread pattern of the 643 Forestar III with wider shoulder lugs and horizontal grooves enhances track compatibility and overall lateral stability. The Alliance 644 Forestar III comes with a specially-designed dual lug angle to provide incredible grip and traction. The large tread width of this tire ensures a wider footprint and results in low ground pressure. Outstanding stability and remarkable resistance against damage ensure that the 643 Forestar III and the 644 Forestar III offer perfect solutions for all forestry needs. For specific track size enquiries, customers can either connect with the Alliance sales team members or the track manufacturers directly or via their website.

Alliance 344 Forestar ELIT

The advanced low pressure (LP) tire 344 was also on display at Interforst. This unique tire was designed with improved construction and flexible strong sidewalls which enable the tire to carry the same load as a standard forestry tire with half the inflation pressure. It offers a large footprint which leads to low soil compaction and a comfortable ride for the driver. The large footprint provides high traction, reduces fuel costs and increases overall productivity in forest work. The tread pattern ensures excellent grip in all terrains. This tire is equipped with a steel reinforcement belt for high puncture resistance whilst a special tread compound enables long tire life. The reinforced dual bead of the tire and the reduced inflation pressure allow for exceptional performance and stability. The 344 Forestar ELIT’s lug angle provides excellent grip and ensures top self-cleaning characteristics. The close spacing of the lugs in the centre of the tire reduces rolling resistance on hard surfaces. The 344 is designed to handle all kinds of terrains with or without chains or bogie tracks.
