A full container handler that is unequaled in lifting capacity and efficiency is called a Caterpillar Container Handler.
By combining stability, modern technology and high performance, Caterpillar Container handlers are the optimum choice for unloading and loading full containers. Container Handlers vary from 24 tons to 43 tons. Options consist of high-mounted cabin in the middle or low-mounted cabin at the front for the superb handling and visibility.
Rough Terrain Forklift
At construction sites and other types of environments where the surface is not paved, the rough terrain forklift is recommended. This type of forklift is utilized to shuttle materials around lumberyards.
These forklifts are meant for rough terrain. Nonetheless, the machinery is top heavy and has to be handled carefully in rough locations. The equipment has to be level with all tires on the ground when lifting.
At faster speeds, steering is harder. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not set speed limits on forklifts. However, operators are responsible for operating forklifts at a speed which is safe, particularly if driving on rough terrain and when turning.
Not raising a load whilst operating on an incline will prevent a tip over. The load must be on the uphill side of the equipment if driving up a slope. If driving down an incline, backing down is a good safety practice.
