What is the Distinction between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

Knowing the distinction between cushion tire forklifts and pneumatic tire forklifts is amongst the most common questions regarding this kind of machinery. Each tire type is specially ideal for various requirements.

Like tires on a vehicle, pneumatic tires have air inside of them. These types of tires are ideal for indoor application but they are most useful on uneven and gravel surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Cushion tires are made as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor operation. These tires can be used outdoors on just asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an alternative to get traction tires on the front of the machinery. These are known as the drive tires. The back tires or the steer tires are particularly made for steering. Traction tires situated on the rear of the forklift will just wear out quicker. Hence, if you do have to work outdoors, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the back will be the most economical and safest way to operate.

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

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

The pneumatic tire could be punctured accidentally. You can get flat tires from them when this happens. Prior to utilizing a forklift with air pneumatic tires, check your work space and be sure that the yard is free of sharp metals, nails and scrap debris. In most applications, regular air pneumatic tires function great.
