Press On Band tyres are also known as cushion tyres or band tyres, suitable for all your forklift tyre requirements.
The tyre is typically made from a single rubber compound that's bonded to a steel band. They are pressed on to the machines hub using a hydraulic press up to 200 tons or more can be required to install a Press On band tyre. They are available in either a smooth tread pattern which are suitable for operating on dry, smooth floors or a traction tread pattern for wet environments or uneven & loose surface conditions.
