Also a question we will need answered will be where and how you use your forklift. If you use your forklift outside you are gonna need a heavy duty pneumatic tire. If you are using a smaller electric forklift that are used in small and tight areas a nice polyurethane tire might be more of what you are looking for. You will also need to check with osha compliance for the latest on what forklift parts and tires will you need to be compliant.
Cushion tires trucks have a tire that is made by bonding rubber to a metal base band. Smaller than pneumatics, cushion tired trucks have a tighter turning radius needed for most indoor applications, especially those with narrow aisle racking. Cushion tired trucks are designed for indoor use but can be taken outside for light work where surfaces are smooth.
Cushion tires are also available in polyurethane. This increases the carrying capacity by approximately 64% while decreasing the rolling resistance to help enhance battery life and reduce fuel consumption. Traction is poor due to the smaller footprint and hardness, plus offers very little suspension for the forklift.
Pneumatic tire trucks afford more flotation for a better ride and traction on most surfaces, and are ideal for heavy duty outdoor applications. Most pneumatics have deep treads, reinforced sidewalls and strong wear-resistant rubber. ┬áThey can also be foam filled to reduce down time due to punctures. If debris is a concern, solid pneumatic tires are another option. Shaped like an air filled tire but composed of rubber compounds, they are made to perform in the harshest environments such as recycling, scrap metal and demolition.
The new Eliminator Tire looks and performs like a cushion tire, but is designed to replace its pneumatic shaped solid counterpart for use in abusive applications where conventional solids fall short. The Eliminator Tire offers better shock absorption, twice the carrying capacity, larger footprint to enhance traction and comes in an aggressive traction and smooth tread design.
Pneumatic and cushion forklift tires are also available in a non-marking compound. This feature is critical when house cleaning is a major issue, and the floors must be kept clean. Carbon Black is replaced with Hydrated Silicas which help to prevent the tire residue from adhering to the floor surface. Non-marking tires typically have a life of approximately 25% less than its marking counterpart.
