Selecting Between Cushion & Pneumatic Tires

Considerably contributing to the safety and handling of the equipment are forklift tires. They also impact the maintenance expenses. The type of forklift determines to a large extent the type of tire because most forklifts are constructed with a particular frame that accepts only a specific type of tire. It helps to know the properties of both cushion and pneumatic tires before choosing a tire.

Instructions
1 Check your forklift owner manual for specifications concerning tires. Most likely your forklift will function either on cushion tires or pneumatic tires. This would limit your options to the type of tire wherein the forklift frame is constructed.

2 Make sure you know the particular type of forklift you are using. Electric pallet jack trucks and electric forklift trucks generally are constructed to use cushion tires that do not need a lot of friction. Pneumatic tires are generally used for forklifts that are powered by diesel or liquid propane gas.

3 Check the type of terrain. Soft cushion tires are constructed for even grounds whereas pneumatic tires are best for rough terrain. Cushion tires, if utilized on surfaces that are not even, could cause the forklift to get stuck because they are set lower. Pneumatic tires perform well on crushed concrete, gravel and packed stones but not on potholed surfaces and really rough grounds.

4 Make certain you know the space limitations. Forklifts used mostly for indoor applications have to be able to turn in tight areas. Cushion tires work better than pneumatic tires in those kinds of situations.
