Manitou Cushion Tire Forklift

Of course there are a variety of different types of forklift parts which make up a work truck. One of the most vital parts is the forklift tires. Choosing the right types of tires for your machinery is essential so as to make sure that mishaps do not occur and to maintain the best performance of the machinery. There are various kinds to choose from, that depends on your specific use and if the forklift would be working inside or outside.

Forklift tires usually need to be changed on a regular basis. They are frequently inundated with punctures and bursts due to the working environments they work in. Additionally, damage frequently happens from the incorrect type of tires being put on the equipment.

Some of the most common types of tires for lift trucks are solid, polyurethane and pneumatic tires. Each different kind has its own variety of disadvantages and advantages. Each and every particular tire is suitable to a specific kind of work setting. Some kinds of tires are suited for a certain kind of work place; other kinds should never be utilized in some places.

Tires may differ in the fact that they are either press-on or standard. Like for example, the standard tires are like the kinds of tires you see on vehicles and automobiles and should be fitted in the same manner. Press-on lift truck parts are mostly utilized for indoor electric models and are not capable of handling rough terrain since they just press onto the machinery.

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

Similar to solid tires, the pneumatic tire is filled with air, whereas the solid tire will never pop or burst. These tires are also not as hard wearing as the pneumatic styles. Solid tires are an excellent alternative for indoor application and light outdoor duty. The most common kind of forklift tire suitable for indoor usage is polyurethane tires. These specific tires are easy to attach to the machine because they are pressed on, instead of being mounted the standard way. Polyurethane tires create the proper amount of traction and are very long lasting, helping to increase the lifespan of both the equipment and the tires themselves.
