How to Choose the RIGHT Forklift Tire Chains

Forklift chains will keep your machines working in all types of weather conditions. Whether you need chains for slick conditions in the workplace or for use on hard pack snow and ice, chains are the best solution for that extra traction. The video above discusses some of the things you need to know BEFORE you purchase a set of chains for your forklift or any other type of equipment.

Tire Chains for Forklift
What you need to know before you buy:

  • Clearance
  • Tire Size
  • Work Environment
  • Price

 

Clearance

First you need to know if you have enough clearance for chains. Clearance is very important for forklift trucks because generally there is less clearance for tire chains. In cases where there is not enough clearance, screw in ice studs are a very good alternative to tire chains. Ken Jones carries a great selection of Ice Studs. Generally it is recommended that you have about two inches between the inner tire and the machine and also above the tire. If you are not, just give us a call.

Tire Size

The next thing you need to know is your tire size. But be aware that one size tire chain may fit one or two different tire sizes- it can be very confusing! This is where a tire chain expert can help.

Work Environment

Next, you need to consider your work environment. Most outdoor forklifts operate in icy parking lots on hard pack snow. Unfortunately there are fewer chain styles available for standard sized forklift equipment. For larger forklift machines, there are many different styles and options available.

Price

And last but not least of course is price. A good tire chain supplier will give you options.

Tire chain buying can be confusing and it is always good to have an expert a phone call away. Give us a call at 1-800-225-9513 or shop forklift tire chains online.
