What is the Difference between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

Among the most common questions about this kind of machinery is knowing the difference between pneumatic tire forklifts and cushion tire forklifts. Every kind of tire is particularly suited for different requirements.

Pneumatic Tires have air inside of them, like vehicle tires. These kinds of tires are ideal for indoor use but they are more effective on uneven and gravel surfaces and in outdoor "yard" applications.

Utilized mainly for indoor operations, 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 option to get traction tires on the front of the machinery. These are called the drive tires. The steer tires or the back tires are specially designed for steering. Traction tires located on the back of the forklift will just wear out faster. Therefore, if you do need to work outside, having the smooth tires on the back and traction on the front will be the safest and most economical way to operate.

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

It could be fairly difficult when trying to know the main distinction between the two tire types. They would operate well in both in gravel and asphalt conditions. The main difference between the two tire types is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means they are durable and you cannot gouge, puncture and pop them. These kinds of tires are more expensive than air pneumatic tires as 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 may be plenty of debris or sharp things on the ground.

Air pneumatic tires can be punctured accidentally. When this occurs, you can get flat tires from them. Before operating a forklift with air pneumatic tires, inspect your work area and be sure that the yard is free of sharp metals, nails and scrap debris. In the majority of applications, regular air pneumatic tires work really great.
