Jungheinrich LP Forklift

Jungheinrich LP Forklift

Lift trucks are essential pieces of equipment utilized commonly in business, especially in distribution centers, warehouses, storage handling and industrial facilities. A lift truck is constructed of hundreds of components, including the cab, the carriage, the power source, the engine and the wheels. Lift trucks usually have different types of attachments as well. The following are several of the most essential forklift parts.

Engine of the Lift Truck - the lift truck is designed with a power source at the rear of the machinery. Different kinds of lift trucks have different types of engine which need varying power sources. Like for example, a lift truck with an internal combustion engine can have any of the following as its source of power: diesel, gasoline, CNG gas or LP gas. Electric motor lift trucks receive their power from fuel cells or a battery.

Frame of The Truck - the base of the forklift truck and the most vital of all the lift truck parts is the truck frame. This forms the equipment's core. All other components of a forklift are connected to the base, like for instance the counterweight, overhead guard, mast, wheels and axles. Hydraulic fluid and fuel tanks could also be part of the frame assembly.

Counterweight Forklift Parts - the counterweight is what enables the machine to be balanced while lifting heavy cargo. This part is made of heavy cast iron and is attached to the backend of the lift truck. The counterbalance balances the truck frame in order to prevent it from tipping over when a load is being lifted or carried on the front. The heavy lead-acid battery in an electric lift truck provides balance and can work as part of the counterweight.

The Cab Area - this part is where the operator sits and drives the machine. Several forklifts have a cab area that is open to the air and some have closed cabs. There are a lot of parts situated within the cab for operating the forks. The cab contains such essential parts like the levers, switches, steering wheel, operator controls, pedals and seats. The dashboard contains operator readouts.
