Solid Skid Steer Tires for Puncture-Prone Applications

Historically, pneumatic tires have been a fixture on skid steers; however, as the number of tasks these versatile machines are asked to perform continues to grow, so do the kinds of tires available for them. There is no one-sits-fits-all tire solution for today’s skid steers, but pairing the “right” tire to the conditions your machine works in can pay off—improving everything from productivity to profit. For example, solid skid steer tires offer numerous advantages to machines working in harsh, puncture-prone environments in applications like demolition, scrap, waste, and recycling.

Here are five reasons why skid steer owners operating in some of the most challenging applications are turning to solid tires.

The Pros and Cons of Extra-Deep Skid Steer Tires

Why Choose a Super-Deep Skid Steer Tire 

Skid steer loaders (SSLs) perform a multitude of tasks in many different conditions; consequently, a wide variety of tire options are available to maximize their performance. Factors like tire construction (radial, bias, solid) and tread pattern (lug, block, button) can make a huge difference in tire performance and cost over the lifetime of the tire. Tread depth is another important characteristic to consider when choosing the best SSL tire for the job. Below is why “going deep” (on tread) is a home run for many skid steer applications.

Tire Time: The Galaxy Hulk SDS

The Galaxy Hulk: A Souped-up Solid Tire With More Rubber

Skid steers are commonly tasked with working in harsh, tire-killing terrain, leading to frustration with unanticipated downtime and tires that don’t meet expectations. When adding to our broad range of skid steer tires, it felt logical to offer a solid tire for the most brutal conditions—enter the Galaxy Hulk SDS. Reminiscent of Home Improvement handyman Tim “The Toolman” Taylor’s catchphrase, “more power,” we souped up this special solid tire with more rubber! The result is a tire that increases machine uptime and operational efficiency, which adds up to extra dollars at the end of the year.
