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 regarding this kind of equipment. Each and every tire type is specifically suited for various needs.

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

Cushion tires are designed as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor operation. These tires can be used outdoors on asphalt surfaces only. If you do drive cushion tires outside, there is an option to get traction tires on the front of the machine. These are called the drive tires. The steer tires or the back tires are specifically designed for steering. Traction tires situated on the rear of the forklift would simply wear out quicker. Therefore, if you do need to work outside, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the back would 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 kinds of tires, it can be a bit difficult. They both work in the same outdoor situations like asphalt, and gravel. The main difference between the two types of tires is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means they are strong and you cannot puncture, pop or gouge them. These tires are more expensive than air pneumatic tires because they are made up of way more rubber. These kinds of tires are best suited for places like for example scrap yards and lumber yards where there could be plenty of debris or sharp objects on the ground.

Air pneumatic tires can be punctured accidentally. When this occurs, you could get flat tires from them. Prior to operating a forklift with air pneumatic tires, check your work space and be sure that the yard is free of debris, sharp metals and nails. In most applications, regular air pneumatic tires function great.
