Manitou Cushion Tire Forklift

Of course there are a variety of different types of forklift parts that make up a work truck. Amongst the most vital parts is the forklift tires. Deciding on the correct kinds of tires for your machine is important so as to maintain the best performance of the machine and to make sure that accidents do not happen. There are various kinds to choose from, which depends upon your particular use and if the forklift would be working indoors or outdoors.

Forklift tires commonly need to be changed regularly. They are commonly inundated with bursts and punctures because of the working environments they work in. Additionally, damage often happens from the incorrect kind of tires being put on the machinery.

For lift truck tires, the most common types are pneumatic, solid and polyurethane tires. Each of these tires has its own array of disadvantages and advantages. Each specific tire is suited to a particular kind of work environment. Some types of tires are suitable for a certain kind of work area; other kinds should never be used in some areas.

Tires can differ in the fact that they are either press-on or standard. For example, the standard tires are similar to the types of tires you see on vehicles and cars and have to be fitted in the same way. Press-on forklift components are mostly used for indoor electric models and are not capable of handling rough terrain because they just press onto the machinery.

Pneumatic tires are considered to be heavy duty lift truck components. They are engineered for use on rough terrain since they have such amazing tread on them and are so thick. These forklift components a rather popular alternative because they do not easily wear down and are extremely tough.

Pneumatic tire are like solid tires, although, pneumatic are filled with air. Solid forklift tires will never pop or burst, although they are not as hard wearing as the pneumatic styles. Solid tires are a great choice for indoor use and light outdoor duty. The most common kind of lift truck tire suitable for indoor usage is polyurethane tires. These specific types of tires are easy to attach to the equipment because they are pressed on, instead of being mounted the usual manner. Polyurethane tires create the right amount of traction and are very long lasting, helping to increase the lifespan of both the tires and the equipment.
