Raymond Corp. has introduced the Smoothy line of polyurethane tires for electric lift trucks. Designed to handle the higher speeds of AC lift trucks, the new tires are engineered to reduce tire heat buildup and eliminate internal flexing that can lead to deformities or cracks. The Smoothy tires stand up to wear and tear to reduce maintenance costs and increase productivity.
Industry standards allow tires to be up to 0.062 inches out of round. However, the Smoothy tire is manufactured using a process that keeps it within 0.005 inches of round, so the lift truck runs more smoothly. The smoother ride increases operator comfort during travel and decreases truck vibration that can lead to nuisance error codes.
Tires in the Smoothy line offer more load stability, reducing product damage and loss. The improved ride quality also gives order-picker operators greater confidence when the platform is raised.
In addition to the tires, a full line of Smoothy lift truck wheels is also available. The Smoothy wheels and tires are compatible with Raymond lift trucks, as well as lift trucks from other manufacturers.
