What is the Distinction between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

Determining the distinction between cushion tire forklifts and pneumatic tire forklifts is one of the most popular questions regarding this type of equipment. Each and every type of tire is particularly suited for different needs.

Similar to vehicle tires, pneumatic tires have air inside of them. These tires are suitable for indoor application but they are more useful on gravel and uneven surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Cushion tires are designed as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor applications. These tires can be utilized outdoors on just asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outside, 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 made for steering. Traction tires located on the forklift's back would just wear out quicker. Therefore, if you do need to work outdoors, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the back would be the most economical and safest way to operate.

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

When trying to know the main distinction between the two kinds of tires, it could be somewhat tricky. They both work in the same outdoor conditions such as asphalt, and gravel. The main distinction between the two tire types is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means you cannot pop, gouge and puncture them because they are durable. These tires are more expensive than air pneumatic tires as they are made up of way more rubber. These types of tires are best suited for locations like for instance scrap yards and lumber yards where there can be plenty of debris or sharp objects on the ground.

The pneumatic tire can be punctured accidentally. You can get flat tires from them when this occurs. Before operating a forklift with air pneumatic tires, be sure that the yard is free of sharp metals, nails and scrap debris and by inspecting your work area. In the majority of applications, regular air pneumatic tires function really great.
