Every operation is different, each requiring the right tools and equipment for the job. That is why it is essential to choose a quality forklift with correct tire type. When it comes to outdoor operations, especially those with uneven terrain, pneumatic tires are the best choice for the job. At Coronado Equipment Sales, we have a large selection used pneumatic tire forklifts that are perfect for a wide range of applications.
What Are Pneumatic Tire Forklifts
Pneumatic forklifts tires, or outdoor forklifts tires, are very similar to the tires that you have on your vehicle. They provide a strong grip on uneven and tough terrain and are popular on construction sites, in lumber yards, and outdoor warehouses environments. There are two different types of these outdoor forklifts, solid pneumatics and air pneumatics. As the names suggest, the air pneumatic forklift tires are filled with air, while the solid pneumatics are made from solid rubber and are puncture proof against nails, rocks, and other sharp objects you would typically find around the yard or workspace. They typically have a lifting capacity anywhere from 3,000 to 19,000 lbs. These forklifts are designed to push through the toughest work days, offering dependable performance and rugged durability in heavy-duty outdoor applications.
Benefits of Pneumatic Forklifts
Pneumatic lift trucks have a range of benefits, particularly in lumber yards, brick, block, and pipe applications, and other heavy-duty applications. Some of the key benefits include:
Pneumatic tire lift trucks offer superior traction on rough terrain and challenging outdoor surfaces. By absorbing the unevenness terrain, pneumatic forklifts offer a smoother ride, and less bumping and shaking.
Made for outdoor use, pneumatic tires generally have a different framework and higher clearance than indoor, cushion-tire forklift models. This allows them to have more maneuverability and a higher clearance over gravel and other rough surfaces.
Outdoor forklifts that operate in rough terrains can undergo a lot of damage due to increased wear and tear. However, air pneumatic forklift tires help limit the amount of damage to the forklift, helping you get the most out of your investment.
