Like solid pneumatic tyres, cushion forklift tyres are made from solid smooth rubber with the difference being fitted around a metal band.
Cushion tyre forklifts are much lower to the ground as they have a smaller chassis than a pneumatic. They generally have excellent traction on smooth surfaces and are long-lasting.
Cushion tyres offer a smaller turning radius, making them an ideal choice for smaller facilities or warehouses with space constraints. They’re also less expensive than pneumatic tyres.
Before you settle on cushion or pneumatic tyres for your forklift, identify where and what type of work your forklift will perform, along with the lift capacity. While cushion forklift tyres are perfect for indoor lifting, pneumatic forklift tyres are designed for outdoor operation.« Back to Index
