Choosing Between Solid and Foam-Filled Tires

More and more industries are turning to skid steers to handle difficult jobs in demanding terrain that challenges even the toughest tires. Between the sidewall-slashing and puncture-threatening debris found on demolition sites and in recycling centers, and the wicked wear caused by hard surface use, skid steer operators in the past would fill their pneumatic tires with foam to maximize uptime and prevent flat tires on the job site.

Since the recent popularization of solid skid steer tires, operators have a choice of whether to upgrade their fleet to solid tires or continue the older practice of foam-filling pneumatic tires. Here are a few reasons we believe will make choosing a solid tire (hopefully from Galaxy) a no-brainer.

Scary Sites and Galaxy Solid Tires

It may not be ghouls and goblins lurking around dark corners that scare today’s skid steer operators; rather, it’s debris, downtime, and punctures that keep them up at night. And while dark basements, haunted woods, and creepy old houses provide the chills this time of year, these scary work sites unnerve operators all-year long. Luckily, skid steer operators can make these sites a little less frightening by equipping their machines with solid tires.

Apertures: Solid Tire's Ace in the Hole

More and more operators are outfitting their equipment with solid tires as industries such as construction, recycling, and mining face increasingly tight margins. Solid tires help minimize downtime caused by flats, can last two to three times longer than a pneumatic tire, and have a reputation for delivering a low total cost of ownership. Also becoming more commonplace is the appearance of small openings, or apertures, on solid tires. But what is an aperture and how does it work?
