What is the Difference between Cushion Tire and Pneumatic Tire?

Determining the difference between pneumatic tire forklifts and cushion tire forklifts is one of the most popular questions regarding this kind of machine. Each and every kind of tire is particularly right for various needs.

Pneumatic Tires have air in them, similar to vehicle tires. These tires are suitable for indoor application but they are most useful in outdoor "yard" applications and on gravel and uneven surfaces.

Cushion tires are designed as a solid industrial tire which is used mostly for indoor applications. These tires can be used outdoors on just asphalt surfaces. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an option to get traction tires on the front of the equipment. These are called the drive tires. The back tires or the steer tires are specially made for steering. Traction tires situated on the forklift's rear will just wear out quicker. Hence, if you do have to work outside, having the smooth tires on the rear and traction on the front would be the safest and most economical way to operate.

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

When trying to know the main difference between the two kinds of tires, it can be somewhat tricky. They both operate in the same outdoor situations such as gravel, and asphalt. The main difference between the two types of tires is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means they are strong and you cannot gouge, puncture and pop them. These tires are more costly than air pneumatic tires because they are made up of way more rubber. These kinds of 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.

Air pneumatic tires can be punctured accidentally. When this happens, you can get flat tires from them. Prior to using a forklift with air pneumatic tires, be sure that the yard is free of debris, sharp metals and nails and by checking your work space. In the majority of applications, regular air pneumatic tires function really great.
