Solid Pneumatic Rubber Forklift Tires

Used in indoor / outdoor applications where tire life or flat tires have been an issue. Ideally suited for smooth running surfaces on either concrete or asphalt. Looks exactly like an air pneumatic tire except instead of air inside the tire, there is only solid rubber.  Offers less flotation than a similar air filled pneumatic tire. The operator will notice a harder ride when compared to the air filled pneumatic tire. Available in smooth or traction tread and black rubber or white non – marking rubber. Provided that the core is in good shape, these tires can be recapped for much less cost than buying brand new. Sometimes the forklift manufacturer will supply a higher capacity rating on a forklift with solid pneumatic tires when compared with air filled tires as they offer much less deflection when loaded.

Polyurethane Lift Truck Tires

For use only indoors and only on smooth concrete surfaces, otherwise tire life will be dramatically reduced. A poly tire will result in a harder ride for the operator. Primarily used on electric pallet jacks, stackers, reach trucks, order pickers and turret trucks.
