stand up versus three wheel narrow aise warehouseYour business is growing and you either need to expand your current warehouse or build a new warehouse to support your growth.

Forklift Tires and Knowing When Enough Is Enough

Posted on

forklift tire tech at workForklifts don’t have a traditional suspension system so the entire weight of the forklift and its load rests on the tires. Your average 5,000 lb. capacity forklift actually has to support up over 11,000 lbs. of weight on the front tires when fully loaded which is no small feat.

Tires that need to be replaced can cause your forklift to be unstable. Riding in a forklift that needs to have its tires changed is uncomfortable for the operator and can lead to fatigue and mistakes.

During your pre-shift inspection, make sure to look for these warning signs that your tires may need to be replaced and contact your local, authorized Toyota dealer for assistance if any of them are detected.
