What is the Difference between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

One of the most popular questions about this kind of equipment is determining the difference between cushion tire forklifts and pneumatic tire forklifts. Each and every type of tire is specifically right for various needs.

Like tires on a vehicle, pneumatic tires have air in them. These kinds of tires are great for indoor use but they are more effective in outdoor "yard" applications and on uneven and gravel surfaces.

Utilized mainly for indoor applications, the cushion tires are designed just like a solid industrial tire. The tire will only be useful outdoors on asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an alternative to get traction tires on the front of the machine. These are called the drive tires. The back tires or the steer tires are particularly made for steering. Traction tires located on the back of the forklift will just wear out quicker. Therefore, if you do need to work outdoors, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the back will be the most economical and safest way to operate.

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

When trying to know the main difference between the two kinds of tires, it could be somewhat difficult. They both work in the same outdoor situations like asphalt, and gravel. The main distinction 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 strong. These kinds of tires are more costly compared to air pneumatic tires since they are made up of way more rubber. These tires are best suited for places like lumber yards and scrap yards where there might be a lot of debris or sharp things on the ground.

The pneumatic tire could be punctured accidentally. You could 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 the majority of applications, regular air pneumatic tires function great.
