Komatsu IC Forklift

Komatsu IC Forklift

Forklift Basics
A forklift is an all-around equipment. It is a small vehicle that has attachments on the front which allow it to move and lift various loads. Forklifts are common features inside factories and warehouses. The operator of a forklift has to acquire special training, especially because these machinery work on rear-wheel drive and this could be very difficult to get used to until one is familiar with it. As the forklift carries its load at the front, the center of gravity is continually shifting and this results in the machinery being frequently unstable.

The lift truck driver would sit in the area known as the "cat." Its an area protected by metal bars that stretch overhead similar to a roof. On the front of the machine, the mast is located. The mast is the mechanism that lowers and raises the load using hydraulic cylinders.

Forklift Parts
It is always a good idea to check the World Wide Web and the local area phone book when looking for remanufactured forklift parts and aftermarket forklift components information. Many places offer a full range of support products, lift truck components and forklift accessories.

Structural Components
The top part of a lift truck is known as the overhead guard. The foot guard is the part that separates the cabin from the load. A counterweight is situated at the back of the forklift and is installed there with a purpose to keep the equipment from falling over.

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

The Lift Structure
The guard of the load apron extends well above the apron. It works to keep the load balanced as the blades carry it along the track of the arms of the upright.

The forklifts IC engine enables the power to be sent to the machines wheels, providing the forklift with movement. The wheels have brakes installed in order to allow the driver the chance to slow down or stop the equipment as needed.

Lifting loads is operated with hoist controls that are located inside the cat. The lift truck is driven by using the steering wheel to turn, like a car or truck.

Load Rating Plate
The specific safety rating plate is bolted in the cabin. This load rating plate details the weight limitations for each and every particular type of forklift.
