Pneumatic Tire Forklifts
Pneumatic tires are the most ideal choice for a forklift that is going to be used on rugged, outdoor terrain. They are great at maneuvering over rough, uneven ground, gravel and asphalt. This is because they are made of aggressive treaded rubber. There are two different pneumatic tires that can be used:
- Solid Pneumatic (Resilient) Tires: These tires are 100% rubber, which means that it is impossible to have a flat tire at any point during its use. So, if you are working in a situation where there are nails or metal present, then this is the choice for you. The only downside is the fact that this tire may provide a more difficult and harder ride than a standard air pneumatic tire.
- Pneumatic Air Tires: These are tires that are made with layered rubber and filled air. Due to these characteristics, it is a softer and more comfortable ride than the solid tires. However, flat tires are a possibility, unlike the resilient tire. The biggest downside to this sort of tire is the fact that is the sidewall is damaged on it the entire tire is ruined and can no longer be used.
