What is the Distinction between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

Knowing the distinction between pneumatic tire forklifts and cushion tire forklifts is amongst the most popular questions regarding this type of machine. Each and every type of tire is specifically ideal for various needs.

Similar to tires on a vehicle, pneumatic tires have air inside of them. These tires are great for indoor use but they are most effective on uneven and gravel surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Cushion tires are designed as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor applications. These tires are able to be used outdoors on just asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an option to get traction tires on the front of the machine. These are called the drive tires. The steer tires or the back tires are specially designed for steering. Traction tires located on the rear of the forklift would just wear out quicker. Therefore, if you do have to work outdoors, having the smooth tires on the rear and traction on the front would be the safest and most economical way to operate.

What is the distinction between Air Pneumatic and Solid Pneumatic tires?

It could be quite tricky when trying to determine the main difference between the two tire types. They will work well in both in asphalt and gravel conditions. The main difference between the two tire types is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means you cannot puncture, pop or gouge them as they are durable. These types of tires are more pricey compared to air pneumatic tires because they are made up of way more rubber. These tires are best suited for locations like lumber yards and scrap yards where there might be lots of debris or sharp objects on the ground.

Air pneumatic tires can be punctured accidentally. When this occurs, you can get flat tires from them. Prior to utilizing a forklift with air pneumatic tires, check your work space and be sure that the yard is free of debris, sharp metals and nails. In the majority of applications, standard air pneumatic tires work really great.
