Nokian Tyres, a leading manufacturer of heavy-duty tires and wheels, has announced the release of its newest addition to the HTS G2 harbour tyre family: the HTS G2 L-5S.

Developed specifically for reach stacker front axle use, the HTS G2 L-5S is designed to improve the stability, grip, and service life of heavy equipment used in container terminals and ports.

According to Kimmo Kekki, Product Manager at Nokian Tyres, the HTS G2 L-5S offers several features that make it an ideal choice for heavy-reach stacker front tyre use.

"The smooth, extra-deep slow-wearing tread lasts up to 35% longer than our previous comparable tyre – depending on your location and application," Kekki said. "Add the stable, steady handling, high load-bearing capacity, and excellent puncture resistance to the package, and you have a real efficiency booster in your hands."

The tyre's advanced engineering is designed to provide high stability and load-bearing capacity. Kekki says that particular attention has been paid to the tyre flexing area, which benefits from a special shock-absorbing rubber compound used in the tyre carcass. Additionally, all Nokian Tyres HTS G2 tyres use bias tyre technology that has been further developed to benefit the new tyre.

The HTS G2 L-5S is also designed with cost efficiency in mind. Its longer service life reduces ownership costs and helps keep the operation competitive. Furthermore, the tyre's excellent handling properties can improve working safety and the sustainability of the entire operation.

Kekki says, "The longer the tyre tread lasts, the more efficiently the entire tyre will be utilised, resulting in less waste."

The new Nokian Tyres HTS G2 L-5S tyre will be available from January 17, 2023, and is designed and manufactured at Nokian's plant in Nokia, Finland. All Nokian Heavy Tyres heavy-duty tyres and wheels carry the 'Design From Finland' and 'Key Flag' symbols granted by the Association for Finnish Work, demonstrating that the products are designed and made in Finland.

In conclusion, the new Nokian Tyres HTS G2 L-5S is an excellent addition to the HTS G2 harbour tyre family, which offers excellent stability, good grip and predictable service life. With its advanced tyre engineering, optimized cost per hour, and safety and sustainability features, it is a perfect fit for reach stackers, forklifts and log stackers in container terminals and ports. So, it will be great news for the heavy equipment operators who are in need of a such type of tyre.
