Flotation Tires Drive Productivity in the Forest

Though the cutting and harvesting of timber is the primary concern of logging operations, the protection of the forest floor from heavy equipment is also a priority for forward-thinking operations. Increasingly large and powerful logging machinery could cause damage to the ground and rip up the root map, slowing the time it takes for the forest to regenerate, reducing the rate of biomass production (resulting in less income), and making landowners unhappy. Fortunately for loggers—and forests—the use of flotation forestry tires is a simple way to minimize compaction and rutting.

Primex Handles the Pressure of Today’s Logging Equipment

Compare a logging operation of today with those of the not-so-distant past and one thing is obvious—the machines on site have grown considerably in both size and power. While the need to increase operational productivity and efficiency is driving the adoption of larger, more powerful equipment, it is also presenting new challenges. Luckily, there’s a simple step operators can take to overcome these challenges and make the most of their tires (and, subsequently, their machines): check tire air pressure frequently.

It’s Groundhog Day! Stop Making the Same Tire Mistakes

To quote Phil Connors, Bill Murray’s character in the movie Groundhog Day, “It's the same thing your whole life: ‘Clean up your room. Stand up straight. Pick up your feet. Take it like a man. Be nice to your sister. Don't mix beer and wine, ever.’ Oh yeah: ‘Check your tire’s air pressure everyday. Use the right tires for the job. Don’t buy on price. And don’t wait until the last minute." Okay, we made the last part up, but Groundhog Day resonates with us because we see so many people in the field stuck in a cycle of repeating the same errors. Help us break the loop by stopping these common mistakes.

New Year's Revolutions

If you’re looking for something different from the typical New Year’s resolutions of “eat better,” “go to the gym more,” and “save more money,” consider one of these tire-based resolutions for 2018. Although they won’t help you eat more vegetables or keep more money in the bank, they just might help you grow more vegetables, increase efficiency—giving you time to hit the gym—and increase your farm's profit, helping you set something aside for a rainy day or harvest.
