Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Utilize a Pneumatic Forklift
You could normally find pneumatic forklifts in shipping and warehouse operations. Also known as pump trucks or pallet trucks, they are utilized in order to move things and materials around on wooden pallets utilizing metal forks that are mounted on a wheeled counterweight. The counterweight includes a pump that lifts the forks off the ground. A pallet truck is designed to be operated by one individual.

Pallet trucks should be operated with care in order to prevent loss of control while lifting heavy loads. Equipment should be inspected prior to operating. Clear the wheels area of any obstacle. Make certain that the handle smoothly turns. The pallet should be stacked carefully in order to ensure that nothing would fall off during transportation.

To be able to lower the forks and release air in the pump, squeeze the lever found on the inside of the metal loop on the end of the pallet truck's handle. The forks could then be pushed into the pallet slots. The forks should be at the center to ensure equal distribution of the pallet's weight across them. Lift the forks from the ground by pumping the pneumatic lift's handle until the pallet has cleared the ground completely. Do not raise the pallet very high or the forklift could unbalance.

Pull on the handle and then drag it behind you if you want to move the pallet. It is not safe to push the pallet ahead of you as the momentum can cause it to go out of control. Slowly take turns and don't attempt to stop abruptly. Slowly stop, squeeze the lever, and the forks will lower to the ground. Lastly, remove the forks from the pallet by pulling them out. Return the pallet truck to its permanent place.
