Pit Stop Line tyres show when they need replacement
Yale claims that customers are noticing savings on forklift operating costs since its decision to fit Trelleborg Pit Stop Line tyres as standard on counterbalance trucks.

Yale is now fitting Pit Stop Line superelastic and non-marking tyres to all new counterbalance trucks with capacities from 1.25 to 5.5 T as standard, and 6 to 16 T as options. The same tyres can also be supplied to owners of existing trucks as part of Yale’s aftersales support.

The Pit Stop Line products feature an orange band that appears on the surface of the tyre when it needs to be replaced.

As well as enjoying fewer bills for new tyres, customers save on downtime and servicing, as replacement of tyres can be planned to fit in with other service activities while ensuring truck availability at critical times, according to Yale.

Robbert Wijnandts, product manager at Yale, says: "It’s early days yet, but we anticipate a typical reduction of around 20% in tyre spend over five years – assuming replacement of two tyres each year. These tyres make great sense in terms of economy, work flow and more. They also give extra confidence in safe tyre condition and, as an environmental sustainability bonus, they cut down on the amount of rubber currently being wasted by replacing tyres too early."
