Why Are More And More Forklifts Using Solid Tires?

- Jan 03, 2020-


A solid tire is a type of tire corresponding to a pneumatic tire or a vacuum tire. The carcass is solid, and no cord is used as the skeleton. It is not necessary to inflate, so no inner tube or inner liner is needed. Solid tires are currently suitable for lows-peed high-load vehicles or machinery, and are often used for fixed-position machinery.

So why are more and more forklifts using solid tires?

That's because solid tires have better elasticity, heat dissipation, abrasion resistance, better stability performance, larger ground contact area, strong grip, long life, low deformation rate, less impact on forklifts, and reduced It increases the maintenance cost of the forklift and increases the comfort of the driver.

Due to the good wear resistance of solid tires, its service life is 3-4 times that of general pneumatic tires.

The solid tire carcass is made of full rubber, which ensures the puncture resistance of the tire to the greatest extent, and fundamentally eliminates the hidden danger of puncture of the industrial vehicle during the load operation and in the harsh operating environment. The solid tire has a small load deformation and good running stability. Because it is puncture-resistant and tear-resistant, it does not need to be inflated, avoids the heavy labor of frequent tire replacement and tire replacement, and can improve vehicle utilization and work efficiency. With solid tires, you no longer have to worry about puncturing the tires, eliminating the need to repair tires.
