Coleman Appreciates Primex—As a Logger and a Skidder Dealer

What Loggers and Skidder Dealers Look for in a Tire 

In his years running logging crews and his family’s TigerCat dealership, Allen Coleman has come to appreciate the difference the right set of tires can make to the productivity and efficiency of a logging operation and to the performance of machines such as skidders, harvesters, and forwarders.

Coleman is seemingly involved with everything logging—from his family’s 40-plus years owning and operating Plains Logging Company in White Plains, Georgia, to the diversification of the family business in 2011 with the purchase of an equipment company now known as AllWood Equipment in Washington, Georgia. Given Coleman’s extensive experience, when he talks about logging tires, we listen.

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.
