The correct choice of forklift tyres will provide multiple benefits including:
Selecting a correctly sized and profiled tyre will enable the forklift to lift and transport loads with the least resistance and wear, increasing productivity.
A reduction in downtime can also be achieved by choosing a more durable tyre, reducing the risk of punctures and premature replacement through excessive wear.
A key benefit from selecting the right tyre is the handling performance. The right tyres will allow the forklift to be more responsive when braking, lowering the risk of potential accidents in the workplace.
Also, the correct choice of tyres will reduce the chances of the forklift slipping on the floor surface and loads becoming unstable during transit.
- Cost reduction
The durability of a tyre can provide considerable cost benefits. A higher quality tyre can last considerably longer than cheaper options, however, this is dependent on its application.
