Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Loader – effective snow removal with safety and sustainability

When you run a ski resort that is also a year-round tourist attraction with some 250 000 visitors annually, you’ll want your machinery to stay in absolute control to ensure everyone’s safety. This is why Sappee holiday resort in Pälkäne, Finland, uses studded Nokian Tyres Hakkapeliitta Loader tires on their Volvo L50 wheel loader for winter maintenance work.

“Safety features are important because of the cramped areas with cars and a lot of people around,” says Kalle Jäppi, who is in charge of the road maintenance. “These siped tires help the machine stop faster, and the studded tires are more comfortable than chains especially on snowless roads.”

But there is more to a tire than just good winter properties. Today, the value of sustainable manufacturing is appreciated more and more.

“We take pride in being an ecological company,” says Sappee CEO Jouko Poukkanen. “We team up with companies that share the same ecological mindset and lead their field by example.”

In their collaboration with Nokian Tyres, Sappee resort also has the opportunity to participate in the product development. “We have great cooperation with the company,”, Jouko Poukkanen says. “Because of that, we can be sure to have the best tires for winter maintenance."
