EWPA MEWP - Tyre Degradation
Tyre Degradation on Mobile Elevating Work Platforms
Tyre damage on mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) is a common occurrence. Identifying what is still
serviceable can sometimes be a difficult decision. Tyres on MEWPs are either solid, polyurethane foam filled or
pneumatic which are found on road going vehicles (truck mounted and trailer lifts). All these tyres should be
approved by the MEWP manufacturer for applications in which those products are intended to be used. This
guidance highlights reasonable benchmarks for tyres on MEWPs.
