Why Choose Solid Skid Steer Tires over Foam Filled and Pneumatic Tire?
There’s no question that heavy equipment is vital to the success of your business, but the quality of your tires are equally as important. While there are plenty of tires on the market (some good, some not so good), the type of tire always comes down to solid versus pneumatic. Continue reading to learn why you should choose McLaren solid skid steer tires instead of pneumatic tires.
You’ll never have a flat tire again
The primary reason most companies equip their machines with solid tires is the fact that their Skid Steer won’t experience flats. It’s not often you see a job site that’s free of debris; instead, skid steers are usually driving over nails, screws, rocks, and more. In other words, your crew doesn’t have to deal with downtime, meaning you won’t have to lose money because of downtime, and you’ll significantly reduce repair costs. McLaren also has the best maintenance free dollar per operational hour ratio in the industry. You will get the most life out of our tires with the least cost, which means; in the long run our tires pay for themselves.
Solid tires last longer without maintenance
With the solid rubber construction of a solid tire, you can expect your tires to last at least three times longer than a pneumatic tire. This is accomplished by using high grade compounds in our rubber mix. Most competitors use low grade materials in their tire compounds. Sound good? It’s about to get even better. You don’t have to worry about maintaining solid cushion tires. There’s no air to fill, no tire pressure to check, and no holes to patch—just revenue to be made and work to get done.
Foam filled pneumatic tires vs. Solid Flat Proof Tires
Another option to make your tires less prone to go flat, is to fill them with a foam, which makes it more difficult for them to go flat, but not completely flat proof. The sidewall of the tire is still a vulnerable area, and if that gets damaged, the foam substance can leak out or be squeezed out, damaging the tire. At this point, the tire has to be replaced. Not to mention, there is less cushion from the pneumatic tire once this foam is injected. With McLaren solid skid steer tires you get the dependability of a flat proof tire with the cushioned ride of a pneumatic tire.
Selecting the best treat pattern for your job
Solid skid steer tires are widely applicable to a variety of work scenarios. Regardless of the type of terrain you’re working on, solid tires are more than capable of handling different terrains and conditions. Not to mention, the weight of solid tires is an added bonus as they’re naturally heavier, giving your machine more stability while lifting and reduced bounce when operating.
