Meet us at the Swiss forestry fair in Lucerne August 2017

Aug 15, 2017 | Corporate news

STARCO will be amongst the 280 exhibitors in Lucerne joining the largest Swiss trade fair for forestry. STARCO displays unique, patented solutions for mounting dual wheels and flat-sided spikes for mowers to use in the characteristic alpine environment of Switzerland.

STARCO will join the forestry fair for the first time and as a main sponsor for the fair running in Lucerne in Switzerland 17th-20th August 2017.
At the fair, the visitors can meet our Swiss sales and service team. The stand will display:

  • Specially reinforced wheels for the toughest use in forestry operations.
  • STARCO Dumper and STARCO Flotation tires – ideally suited for mixed forestry operations.
  • Dual Wheel solutions for stability and information about the standard product range.
  • Unique e-coat technology for corrosion-resistant steel wheels.
  • STARCO’s patented clamp system for mounting dual wheels.
  • A spiked mower wheel for traction even on the steepest alpine inclines.

Switzerland is a key market for our Dual Wheel solutions. It is where STARCO’s dual systems were born over 45 years ago. All the initial development took place in the tough Swiss alpine conditions. Today the dual wheel and spacer system is developed for other European countries, however the Swiss solutions remains specialised for the Swiss market.

“We understand what it takes to make wheels suitable for all applications and are proud to be serving the Swiss forestry and farming community with the best wheels and dual wheels available today,” says Stephan Schaer, continuing:
“It’s great to be in a fair together with both our customers, being the distributors, and the end-users. This gives us valuable insight in the current usage and ideas for future development.”

Drop by stand A26 in hall 2 for a chat about your applications and how our wheels and duals can make your machine (or your customer’s machine) more efficient. You can also learn what’s special about STARCO’s wheel manufacturing, and see the SOK and KlimmFix systems.


This 90 sec video shows how simply STARCO dual wheels can be mounted on your tractor without complicated or damaging mountings.
