Komatsu IC Forklift

Komatsu IC Forklift

Forklift Basics
Forklifts are very versatile machinery. The machines are typically small vehicles with various attachments which enable it to lift and move loads. Factories and warehouses all around the world would utilize forklifts. A forklift driver should acquire special training, especially since these types of machines function on rear-wheel drive and this can be hard to get used to until one is familiar with it. Because the forklift carries its load at the front, the center of gravity is always shifting and this results in the equipment being unstable quite often.

The forklift driver will sit in the area known as the "cat." Its an area protected by metal bars which stretch overhead like a roof. On the front of the machinery, the mast is situated. The mast is the mechanism which lowers and raises the load using hydraulic cylinders.

Forklift Components
When looking for information about lift truck parts and aftermarket forklift components, it is a good idea to check out the Internet or your local phone book. A lot of places offer a full range of forklift parts, forklift accessories and support products.

Structural Parts
The overhead guard is part of the top portion of the forklift, while the foot guard separates the cabin from the load. A counterweight is located at the forklift's back and is installed there that allows you to keep the equipment from falling over.

The tines and Apron
The load apron is typically responsible for keeping the cargo positioned correctly on the metal arms, or forks, cradle the cargo. The blades are capable to be tilted in an effort to balance the cargo. This is accomplished with the tilting ram and the hydraulic hoist arm that powers the upward movement of the fork.

The Lift Structure
The load apron guard extends over the apron. It functions to keep the cargo stable when the tines carry it along the track of the arms of the upright.

The forklift's internal engine enables power to be sent to the wheels of the machine. This is what moves the forklift. The wheels have brakes installed so as to allow the driver the chance to slow down or stop the machinery as needed.

The lift is operated via hoist controls which look like a bunch of stick-shaped levers. The forklift is driven by utilizing the steering wheel to turn, like a truck or car.

Load Rating Plate
This plate is situated inside the cabin. This load rating plate details the weight restrictions for each and every specific kind of forklift.
