Solid tires

Solid MEWP tires to help you save time and money.

Tires are the only connection between the machine and the terrain, it is therefore critical to ensure that they are safe, reliable and performance-worthy anytime and every time.

Trident has developed a complete range of Traxter branded low-profile solid tires.

This is of even greater importance for tires fitted on aerial equipment such boom lifts, scissor lifts, telehandlers etc. Furthermore, tire related costs are usually among the top five operating costs for most industrial equipment.

Spending a few minutes to evaluate various tire options (see table 1) and selecting the right tire to ensure all user needs are met will increase your machine’s uptime; improve your rental customer’s jobsite performance and reduce the total cost of ownership.

On-time project completion, regardless of its size and scope, ranks high among the success factors for rental companies and contractors, as delays result in immediate cost overruns and the loss of future business opportunities.

Based on customer feedback, Trident has developed a complete range of Traxter branded low-profile solid tires specially designed for all types of elevated work platforms ranging from 20-foot rough-terrain scissors to 150-foot boom lifts. These flat-proof tires are long lasting and have very low lifetime ownership costs.

Traxter solid tires offer users several additional advantages over foam-filled pneumatic tires at no additional cost. Besides being 100 percent flat-proof, they have high damage resistance, deeper treads for better traction and a long service life. The lower sidewall flex eliminates the bouncy ride typically associated with foam-filled tires.

Foam filling of tires requires a turnaround of between 4 to 6 days, whereas Traxter solid tires are supplied as ready-to-fit assemblies for quick and easy fitment on site. This further reduces downtime and improves machine utilization and capital efficiency.
