Pneumatic Tire Forklifts
Pneumatic tire forklifts can be filled with air, solid rubber, or foam for indoor and outdoor uses. A forklift with pneumatic tires can be used to carry fragile loads across uneven, rough terrain because it has superior shock absorption properties.
If the forklift is used only on smooth surfaces, consider buying a cushion tire forklift for sale.
Types of Pneumatic Forklift Tires
The two types of pneumatic forklift tires are:
- Air pneumatics – A forklift riding on treaded tires filled with air.
- Not recommended for driving over sharp objects.
- Solid pneumatics – A forklift riding on tires filled with solid rubber or foam.
The Benefits of Pneumatic Forklift Tires
Though solid pneumatic forklift tires can lose chunks of rubber over time, they cannot be punctured or deflated, making them far more durable than cushion tires, and ideal for operating a forklift across sharp debris. Pneumatic tires with foam are cheaper than those with solid rubber but do not last as long.
A pneumatic forklift is designed for:
- Construction sites
- Warehouses (indoor and outdoor)
- Similar environments with asphalt, compacted dirt, or firm gravel
Unlike air cushion tires, which are smooth and free of treads, pneumatic tires have treads made of special chemically treated rubber that is abrasion-resistant, meaning the treads do not wear down easily. The thickened treads provide a superior traction across uneven terrain and solid rubber core absorbs most of the shock for a smoother ride, reducing operator fatigue.
A pneumatic forklift can be used in places that are too uneven and obstacle-laden for cushion tire forklifts. Operating a cushion tire forklift outdoors will lead to damaged tires that have to get repaired or replaced, resulting in costly project delays and additional expenses.
