Skid Steer Solid Tire Info Roundup

One way in which operators are keeping their skid steers on the move is with solid tires. Solid tires virtually eliminate punctures and the unforeseen downtime caused by them, and last two to three times longer than conventional skid steer tires—which reduces the amount of time skid steers are out of action for time-consuming changeovers.

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.
