What is the Difference between Cushion Tire and Pneumatic Tire?

Determining the distinction between cushion tire forklifts and pneumatic tire forklifts is amongst the most popular questions about this type of equipment. Every type of tire is particularly suited for various needs.

Pneumatic Tires have air inside of them, similar to tires on a vehicle. These kinds of tires are ideal for indoor usage but they are most effective on gravel and uneven surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Utilized mostly for indoor applications, the cushion tires are made just like a solid industrial tire. The tire will just be effective outdoors on asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an alternative to get traction tires on the front of the equipment. These are known as the drive tires. The back tires or the steer tires are particularly designed for steering. Traction tires situated on the forklift's back would just wear out faster. Thus, if you do have to work outside, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the rear would be the most economical and safest way to operate.

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

It could be quite tricky when trying to know the main difference between the two tire types. They would operate well in both in gravel and asphalt situations. The main difference between the two tire types is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means you cannot gouge, puncture and pop them since they are durable. These kinds of tires are more costly compared to air pneumatic tires because they are made up of way more rubber. These types of tires are best suited for places like scrap yards and lumber 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, 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.
