Forklift Tire Press

We designed our line of hydraulic forklift tire presses with the needs of the operator in mind. Each press has easy cylinder activation, providing the operator more control. Ram movement speeds up the more the lever is engaged.

Our forklift tire press comes standard with a large cylinder rod for platen stability and long seal life. It has a regulator to limit the ram pressure and a double-acting cylinder that allows both pressing and return. It has a large oil reservoir and hydraulic power-lift for vertical displacement of the head assembly. Because it maintains lower oil temperatures, the press is efficient, safe and durable.
