Whether it’s in warehouses or on bustling construction sites, there’s a common sight present across all these industries, the ever reliable forklift. This right piece of machinery is the basis of many businesses and forms an integral part of delivering peak operational performance.
In order to ensure that a forklift is as productive as possible, it is important to ensure it is equipped with the right type of tyres suitable for its environment. This will not only ensure optimal performance but mitigate any ongoing operational costs.
Here at Forkcare we have been in the Forklift business for over 50 years. We’re committed to making sure all our equipment is running to its potential, part of which includes the appropriate fitout of the best suited tyres.
In this blog we’ll go through the importance of selecting the right type of tyres, the range of tyres available in the market, and how to determine which will be the best fit for your particular requirements.
Across many industries and in a variety of applications, forklifts perform core functions forming an integral part of operational performance. The best way toward getting the best performance from a forklift is to equip it with the right tyres for the job.
Selecting the best forklift tyre for your particular application can have significant impacts on safety, productivity, and the businesses bottom line.
This should be your number one consideration. Operating a forklift with the correct fitted tyres aids in ensuring the highest levels of safety. When appropriately equipped a forklift will handle better in operation and be more responsive under braking, providing vital control and protection from any unforeseen circumstances.
Matching the right tyre to its intended operational surface is another important safety factor.
This reduces the risk of a forklift slipping when lifting loads, and improves the stability of loads when being transported.
