Improve Skid Steer Tire Life and Increase ROI

There are two key facts to know about skid steer tires: 1) skid steers are tough on tires, and 2) in general, tires are the most expensive consumable item on a skid steer. Considering these two facts, it stands to reason that the more life owners and operators squeeze out of a tire, the greater their return on investment.

The most common causes for the hastened wear of skid steer tires can be divided into two categories: operators and application. Keep reading to learn the subtle (and not-so-subtle) ways in which you could be burning through your tires, and the steps that you can take to increase the life, and ROI, of your skid steer tires.

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.
