In such a harsh environment as forestry work it is imperative to select the best tyre for the job. After comprehensive tests on budget, mid-range and premium trailer tyres, Robert Tweddle Ltd decided the Kumho KMA12 was the optimum product for this application. It was found to outperform all the competition and lasted up to a year before requiring replacement, compared with some products that were removed after just three months and even premium ones lasted only seven.
The family based company Robert Tweddle Limited was formed 32 years ago and operates from Longtown in Cumbria. It boasts a fleet of 16 vehicles and can also call on low-loader trailers and chip liners when required. Company Director Daniel Tweddle, commented: “The Kumho KMA12 is a good, reliable product. It meets all our requirements and performs very well against the available competition. There are proven savings, not only in regard to the purchase price but overall running costs too.”
Michael Hayton of Cumbria Tyre Specialist Ltd, which services the account, added: “The Kumho KMA12 has proved itself to have the required level of durability and longevity in a harsh environment where resistance to damage is of paramount importance.”
Kumho Tyre UK’s truck tyre Sales Manager Steve Miller summed up by saying: “We are delighted to supply such a prestigious and respected organisation as Robert Tweddle with our range of products and are encouraged that the KMA12 is performing to the level of which we know it is capable. We look forward to a long and mutually successful association with this company.”
