Someone Had to Figure it Out…

Smooth Ride – Amazing Traction – Carbide Durability

Use on Pneumatic Tires
Carbide Tipped Traction Screws
Use on Solid Tires
  1. Standard Grip provides excellent traction for plowing while enabling you to drive your machine indoors. The screws barely extend beyond the tires tread (1/32″ – 1/16″).  After ten years of sales we’ve never had a single complaint. However, our testing shows that the Standard Grip can make minor scratches in concrete and asphalt surfaces when performing  maximum turns, spinning tires or slamming on the brakes.
  2. Super Grip  are best suited for forklifts used mainly outside on asphalt or an aggregate surface. They are more aggressive than Standard Grip and will  make minuscule chips in concrete floors. Both  size screws can be used without damage to asphalt.

With these traction screws, you’ll be driving your forklift in conditions you never thought possible. You’ll be surprised with how well they work and impressed with how well they’re made. Of the two European manufacturers, ours have wider threads, so they don’t sink into the rubber or fall out. In fact, you’ll probably never lose one unless your tires wear out.

Traction will be enhanced by adding additional weight on the forks.

Tread Depth Minimum Requirements

11 mm or 7/16″ for Pneumatic Tires
20 mm or 3/4″ of Rubber for Solid Tires

The more screws you install, the better your traction (especially with small solid tires).

How We Started Using Traction Screws

For years we rigged emergency cables made for auto tires which worked reasonably well. A bumpier ride than one would like, but certainly better than chains.

During the time we were developing our original plow  “CP” discovered these new traction screws made in Europe. “as soon as I saw them I knew.” CP says. “When I was a teen, we studded the tires on our motorcycles with hex head sheet metal screws. The first time I thought I’d loose 1/2 of them. Not only didn’t they fall out, but they held under extreme cornering, on a lake that was glare ice. It was like being on a set of railroad tracks. Absolutely amazing!

Consequently we tried these extremely well designed screws on our forklift and haven’t looked back.

We’ve sold thousands to other forklift operators with not one complaint.

We are a National Distributor wholesaling to forklift companies throughout the US and Canada.

Installation is quite simple.

Traction screws can easily be screwed into the rubber treads using a variable speed drill. You have the option of leaving them in year round. (They are carbide tipped. We doubt you’ll wear them out.) As a second option, they are also easily removed when your winter season is over. (install = 1 hr per 27″ tall tire)

We recommend 2 or 3 traction screws per tire tread. (as seen in pics on this page)

What About Tire Chains?

Chains work well, but there are issues, such as no suspension with forklifts. It’s a pretty rough ride with chains, and that’s if there’s room for them between the wheel and fender.
