Solid Pneumatic Forklift Tyres
When people are searching for forklift tyre in Singapore, it’s often pneumatic tyres they’re after. Pneumatic tyres for forklifts are similar to car tyres. They provide high performance and are highly versatile.
They are also strong in terms of grip, and can handle rough terrain and uneven surfaces well. Pneumatic tyres can be used indoors or outdoors, and you’ll often find them in the construction industry or in warehouses.
There are actually two types of pneumatic tyres. Solid pneumatics are more sturdy and protect better against punctures. If you require forklifts for outdoor work, opt for machinery that incorporates solid pneumatic tyres.
Air Pneumatic Forklift Tyres
As you might deduce from the name, air pneumatics forklift tyres are different from solids as they are filled with air. The way air pneumatics are made means they can absorb shock and carry loads better.
They are also more protected against damage than cushion tyres would be. This makes them ideal for outdoor work. In terms of operator experience, air pneumatics are comfortable and offer greater resistance to uneven terrain. Browse our selection of these great, all-round tyres today — you won’t be disappointed!
Cushion Forklift Tyres
Cushion forklift tyres are made from smooth rubber. They are fitted around a metal band. Cushion tyres are great solutions as they are cheap to make and buy.
However, they are unsuitable for outdoor use. Cushion tyres are often found on forklifts that work best on smooth surfaces, including most electric models. Cushion tyres are also helpful from an operator’s point of view.
This is because tyres have a narrower tread, meaning the operator is sat closer to the ground. As a result, the turning circle of the forklift is smaller. Cushion tyres are a great option for warehouses and distribution centres.
Choosing the right forklift tyre
Generally, pneumatic tyres are the forklift tyre of choice for all trucks operating outside, for example on construction sites. Adversely, cushion tyres are inevitably found on indoor vehicles.
All electric forklifts come with cushion tyres. It’s best to check beforehand what type of forklift tyre your machinery needs. If you’re in any doubt, ask a member of Forklift Singapore’s friendly team.
