Q3: What is the difference between Polyurethane and Nylon wheels?
Polyurethane (PU) are generally the most popular wheel type and are a cast wheel with a polyurethane tyre around the outer, this wheel gives a better grip on smooth floors and is quieter running than Nylon. This softer wheel type also tends to be better for use on delicate flooring (finished floor surface, eg. epoxy finishing).
Nylon wheels are a hard rigid plastic wheel, they tend to be better in areas that may have debris on the floor such as engineering work shops; as the debris does not penetrate into the wheel.
Choose nylon pallet truck steer wheels for low rolling resistance and long life at a low cost.
Choose polyurethane treaded pallet truck steer wheels for quiet running and better grip.
Choose steel steel wheels for harsh working environments such as metal working areas.
Choose solid rubber treaded steer wheels for quiet running over uneven surfaces.
For smooth operation on uneven surfaces and crossing sills choose tandem load wheels.
Standard fitment on our hand pump trucks is the single load wheel.
