Most forklifts will be fitted with either a puncture proof cushion solid tyre or an air-filled pneumatic tyre. Solid tyres have a wear indicator on them. It's important that checking your forklift tyres is part of your maintenance program.
Air filled pneumatic forklift tyres require the correct amount of pressure to be operated safely and efficiently. An underinflated tyre will be down on capacity and has potential to roll off the rim under load.
Worn forklift tyres will increase load on the powertrain, resulting in increased fuel consumption and premature wearing of mechanical parts and increase operator fatigue.
A quality forklift tyre is worth its value as substandard tyres will impact your bottom lone.
