What is the Distinction between Cushion Tire and Pneumatic Tire?

Knowing the difference between pneumatic tire forklifts and cushion tire forklifts is among the most common questions regarding this type of machinery. Each and every tire type is specifically ideal for various needs.

Like vehicle tires, pneumatic tires have air in them. These tires are great for indoor usage but they are most useful on gravel and uneven surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Cushion tires are made as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor applications. These tires can be used outdoors on asphalt surfaces only. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an alternative to get traction tires on the front of the equipment. These are called the drive tires. The steer tires or the back tires are specially made for steering. Traction tires located on the rear of the forklift will simply wear out quicker. Hence, if you do need to work outside, having the smooth tires on the back and traction on the front would be the safest and most economical way to operate.

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

It can be fairly tricky when trying to determine the main distinction between the two tire types. They will operate well in both in asphalt and gravel conditions. The main distinction between the two types of tires is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means they are durable and you cannot puncture, pop or gouge them. These types of tires are more pricey than air pneumatic tires as they are made up of way more rubber. These tires are best suited for locations like for example lumber yards and scrap yards where there might be a lot 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 using a forklift with air pneumatic tires, inspect your work space and be sure that the yard is free of debris, sharp metals and nails. In the majority of applications, standard air pneumatic tires work great.
