Doosan Big Forklifts

On the back of the lift truck is a counterbalance, which allows the lift truck to raise really heavy things. The counterbalance gives balance so that the machine would not tip over while carrying and moving heavy loads. Forklifts are rated according to their load capacity. A small forklift which can carry 1800 kilograms weighs about 4000 kilograms, that is equivalent to two full-size pickup trucks. The biggest forklifts could have up to 36,000 kilograms of lifting capacity.

There are a lot of safety issues involved in utilizing a forklift. When driving down a ramp, travel in reverse. If the load is bulky and interferes with vision, haul it in reverse. Operators need to be familiar with how to mount the lift safely using the "three-point stance." This includes putting the right hand on the back of the seat, while gripping the upright of the safety cage with the left hand and placing the left foot on the step. On no account must you jump out of a forklift even during a tip over. It is safer to remain inside the confines of the lift. Any slip or fall on a lift truck could lead to serious injuries.

In a lot of industries, the forklift is considered an indispensable since they are required to rapidly raise and transport goods, unload and load products safely and with little to no physical exertion. Pedestrian safety is a primary consideration when working in public spaces. Operators should always give pedestrians the right-of-way. A lift truck must never be driven on uneven surfaces or on a highway. The driver must have a seat belt fastened all the time while driving.
