Caterpillar IC Forklifts

In choosing the correct Forklift Tire and Compound, the following factors must be taken into consideration: type of fuel utilized; weight of your standard load; length of your standard run; types of issues you are having; kind of surfaces the forklift runs on; whether or not your forklift operates over dock plates; number of shifts and percentage of time the forklift is loaded; and the average speed and the top speed of your forklift

There are particular terms which describe various attributes of tires. It is helpful to know what exactly they mean. The term Durometer means the hardness of forklift tires. The range is normally from 83 to 95, the number would increase which depends on the hardness of the tire. Nearly all of the tires manufactured nowadays fall within a couple of standard industry classifications.

The driver could have a more comfortable ride if the tires are softer. They are recommended for applications that require frequent maneuvering as they offer better traction. They are could better tolerate driving over floor debris. For applications which need maximum speed and long runs, soft tires are not suggested. They are made of softer compounds that have the tendency to heat up and wear more quickly compared to hard tires.

Harder tires are recommended for use needing high speed, multiple shifts and long runs. They are better than soft tires for maximum loads, and they will wear better and last longer. Hard tires give a less comfortable ride and are less forgiving of floor debris. They tend to be more energy efficient because they provide less resistance.

Universal Compound tires combine advantages and are recommended as all-around tires for general use.
