Midland Pallet Trucks Help Customers Choose Between Nylon and PU Wheels
One of the UK’s leading providers of pallet trucks has appealed to businesses that are in the market for a new addition to their fleet, urging them to make wheel type a key consideration as they narrow down the contenders. Midland Pallet Trucks wants to ensure that all customers get the trucks they want, fully equipped with the wheels that will meet every expectation of end-users.
Choosing between nylon and polyurethane (PU) wheels is a crucial part of the selection process when it comes to buying a pallet truck. Each wheel type has different benefits, and can complete change the main role of a truck.
Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks, says, “The type of wheels that come with a pallet truck can totally dictate which kind of environment the equipment should be used in – therefore it’s crucial for businesses to get it right. The wrong wheels on the wrong surface can cause problems, whether it’s a small noise annoyance or something more serious, like an injury to an operator.”
He adds, “At Midland Pallet Trucks, we’re on hand to ensure that all our customers choose the right wheels for their business, as well as being able to provide tips and advice on other criteria that businesses should be looking for in their next truck.”
Both PU and nylon wheels have a specific set of advantages and drawbacks, depending on the environment in which they’re used. PU wheels are more suited to customer-facing areas like shop floors – their smooth and silent operation means they won’t distract customers from their purchase decisions. The outer surface of the wheel also provides grip on smooth surfaces, so tiled or wooden floors are easy to navigate if a truck is armed with PU wheels.
Nylon wheels, in contrast, are made for rough and uneven areas. With a durable, hardwearing surface, these wheels can stand up to anything the industrial workplace throws at it, whether it’s debris on the floor or even liquid spillages. The slightly louder operation means these wheels are better used behind-the-scenes or in environment where there won’t be any potential customers, such as warehouses or production plants.
Choosing the right type of wheel can be the difference between increased performance and a slowdown in activity. In the worst cases, attempting to move a heavy load with the wrong wheel type could even result in an injury – which is why Midland Pallet Trucks are emphasising the importance of choosing the right wheel, and offering their assistance to all customers as they attempt to find the right fit for their business.
