A Cut Above: Radial Tires on a Sawmill’s Forklift

Working in a sawmill is one of the toughest jobs asked of a forklift, much less its tires. Long hours, rough surfaces, tight operational spaces, and exposure to a wide variety of puncture-causing debris mean tires are always at risk. Having tires on your forklift that are application-specific is a key step you can take to get the best performance and return on investment (ROI) from your machine and its tires. Don’t believe us? Check out this test we’ve been running at one southeastern sawmill interested in equipping their forklift with the longest lasting tires to reduce cost and downtime due to changeover.

How the Tire Stole Christmas

Every worker in the warehouse liked Christmas a lot,
But the tire, who worked in the warehouse, Did NOT!
The tire loathed Christmas! The whole Christmas season!
Now, please don't ask why. No one quite knows the reason.
It could be the tire just wasn’t mounted right.
It could be, perhaps, working long hours into the night.
But many think that the most likely reason,
May have been that the tire was not built for the holiday season.
Whatever the cause, the loads or the floors,
The tire moved through the warehouse, hating its chores,
Keeping forklifts, reach trucks, and workers aflow,
Moving quickly to get packages into the stows,
For the tire knew every person and machine in the DC,
Was busy with packages bound for the Christmas tree.
