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.

Should I Choose Solid Pneumatic or Press-On Forklift Tires?

In recent years, solid tires have become an increasingly popular tire choice for forklift operators working everywhere from the smooth concrete floors of warehouses to the debris-filled ground of construction sites. Because of the diverse roles forklifts are asked to fill, tire manufacturers like ATG have developed an equally diverse range of solid forklift tires. With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide what tire is correct for your application—which is why we came up with this handy guide for the different types of solid forklift 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.

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?
