The new tyre ECE – R54 is ready. Nokian has developed a tyre that is compatible with the Diamant 2000. This ensures a more optimal driving of the self-propelled chipper from the mechanical engineering company Albach Maschinenbau from Bavaria. The tyre was intensively tested by the development departments of Albach Maschinenbau and Nokian as the manufacturer of the tyre under various climatic conditions. More than 3000 kilometres of test drives precede the introduction of the new ECE R54. The Diamant 2000 with its new tyres is approved in series for 80 km/h driving speed. In addition to rolling tests on motorways, rolling tests were carried out under lateral and longitudinal forces with brakes and cornering. The result was convincing. The vehicle dynamics tests were carried out in accordance with DIN EN ISO 4138, 7975 and 7401.
