Choosing Between Cushion & Pneumatic Tires

Forklift tires contribute a lot to your equipment's handling and safety characteristics, as well as impacting maintenance costs. The kind of forklift would determine to a large extent the type of tire because the majority of forklifts are made with a specific frame that accepts only a particular kind of tire. It helps to know the properties of both pneumatic and cushion tires prior to selecting a tire.

Instructions
1 For tire specifications, you should check your forklift owner guidebook. Most likely your forklift runs either on cushion tires or pneumatic tires. This will limit your choice to the kind of tire for which the forklift frame is constructed.

2 Make certain you know the specific type of forklift you are utilizing. Electric forklift trucks and electric pallet jack trucks are normally made to use cushion tires which do not need a lot of friction. Pneumatic tires are usually for forklifts that run on diesel or liquid propane gas.

3 Make sure you know what kind of terrain you would be utilizing the forklift on. Soft cushion tires are constructed for even terrain whilst pneumatic tires are suitable for rough terrain. Cushion tires, if utilized on uneven surface, could cause the forklift to get stuck as they are set lower. Pneumatic tires perform well on gravel, packed stones and crushed concrete but not on potholed surfaces and very rough terrain.

4 Make certain you know the space limitations. Forklifts utilized mostly for indoor applications must be able to pivot in limited areas. Cushion tires truly work better than pneumatic tires in those types of conditions.
