Lift trucks are available in a broad selection of sizes and shapes, and each type of forklift has a unique set of tires. Usually, tires are either pneumatic or cushion, however distinctions extist within those options. Pneumatic tire and cushion tire forklifts have differing frames, so they lack cross-compatibility.
Although your tires are sturdy and durable, they have to be changed out every now and then. Raymond West offers tires for all types of forklifts at very favorable prices.
Sometimes referred to as Press On Tires, this sort of tire is primarily for indoor use, and at times outdoors on level surfaces. Press on tires have a smaller diameter than other kinds of forklift tires, and thus have a narrower turning radius; making them ideal for smaller spaces such as warehouse aisles. Fixating a cushion tire onto a forklift wheel requires the use of a hydraulic press.
As part of the press on tire category, two standard types are found:
Rubber Cushion Tires: Rubber cushion tires can be used within a warehouse or on level surfaces outdoors such as concrete or asphalt. They consist of solid rubber, molded around a solid steel band. This kind of tire can come smooth or with treading. Frequently the front wheels of a forklift will have treaded tires while the rear wheels used for steering will be smooth.
Polyurethane Cushion Tires: Solid poly tires work with larger loads than their rubber counterparts, and are ideal for narrow aisle applications, order pickers and other warehouse duties. These tires are lightweight, and are more resistant to splitting, tearing, and chunking in comparison to rubber, and they can last up to twice as long as rubber with proper care.
Pneumatic and solid pneumatic tires are often used for outside applications, and are better suited to uneven or rough surface conditions than press on tires. They have excellent traction and taller ground clearance which makes them suited for rougher terrain.
Regular Pneumatic Tires: This variety of pneumatic tire is inflated with air, and is optimally used on very rough surfaces where shock absorption is a concern, for both the forklift’s longevity and the operator’s comfort. The potential issue with regular pneumatic tires is that they are more easily punctured, and sometimes they are filled with foam to prevent flats.
Solid Pneumatic Tires: Solid pneumatic tires are designed for even surface indoor and outdoor heavy duty scenarios. Made from solid rubber and almost entirely puncture resistant, they are best used for terrain with pointy objects, like construction sites or recycling yards.
Non Marking Tires
Non-marking options are available for pneumatic, solid pneumatic, and solid tires. These are constructed with hydrated silicas and other additives to refrain from leaving floors covered in black marks.
These types of tires are frequently used in retail or any settings where unmarked floors matter. They are likewise used in a selection of industrial or food processing plants where cleanliness and dust reduction are factors.
Some drawbacks exist to using non-marking tires. First and foremost, they often are not as durable as other tires and will need to be replaced more often. Another problem is that static electricity builds up on them, and any lift truck that has them needs to be set up with static remediation technology.
