What is the Difference between Pneumatic Tire and Cushion Tire?

One of the most common questions regarding this type of machinery is knowing the difference between pneumatic tire forklifts and cushion tire forklifts. Every type of tire is specifically ideal for different needs.

Like vehicle tires, pneumatic tires have air in them. These types of tires are ideal for indoor usage but they are more effective in outdoor "yard" applications and on uneven and gravel surfaces.

Cushion tires are designed as a solid industrial tire that is used mostly for indoor applications. These tires are able to be utilized outdoors on asphalt surfaces only. If you do drive cushion tires outdoors, there is an option to get traction tires on the front of the machinery. These are called the drive tires. The back tires or the steer tires are specifically made for steering. Traction tires situated on the forklift's back will simply wear out faster. Therefore, if you do have to work outside, having traction on the front and the smooth tires on the rear will be the safest and most economical way to operate.

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

When trying to determine the main distinction between the two tire types, it could be a bit difficult. They both operate in the same outdoor situations like asphalt, and gravel. The main difference between the two tire types is solid pneumatics are made of solid rubber. This means they are strong and you cannot puncture, pop or gouge them. These tires are more pricey compared to air pneumatic tires since they are made up of way more rubber. These types of tires are best suited for locations like scrap yards and lumber yards where there can be lots of sharp objects and debris on the ground.

Air pneumatic tires are able to be punctured accidentally. When this occurs, you can get flat tires from them. Prior to operating a forklift with air pneumatic tires, be sure that the yard is free of debris, sharp metals and nails and by checking your work area. In most applications, regular air pneumatic tires work really great.
