Forklift Basics
Forklifts are very handy machines. The equipment are typically small vehicles with numerous attachments which enable it to move and lift loads. Factories and warehouses all around the globe will utilize forklifts. The driver of a forklift must obtain special training, especially since these kinds of machines work on rear-wheel drive and this can 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 equipment being unstable quite often.

Parts
Normally, a forklift operator usually sits in an area referred to as the "cat." This particular area offers metal protection that stretches overhead like a roof. On the front of the equipment, the mast is situated. The mast is the mechanism that lowers and raises the load with the use of hydraulic cylinders.

Forklift Components
It is always a good idea to check the internet and the local area phone book when searching for remanufactured forklift parts and aftermarket forklift components information. Numerous places offer various forklift accessories, support products and forklift parts.

Structural Parts
The overhead guard is part of the forklift's top portion, whilst the foot guard separates the load from the cabin. A counterweight is situated at the forklift's back and is installed there in an effort to keep the machinery from falling over.

The blades and Apron
The load apron is usually responsible for keeping the cargo positioned well on the metal arms, or forks, cradle the cargo. The forks can be tilted in an effort to balance the load. This is accomplished with the hydraulic hoist arm and the tilting ram which powers the upward fork movement.

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

Mechanics
The internal engine on the forklift allows power to be sent to the wheels of the equipment. This is what makes the forklift move. The wheels have brakes installed so as to allow the driver the chance to slow down or stop the machinery as needed.

Controls
Lifting loads is operated utilizing hoist controls that are located in the cat. The lift truck is driven by using the steering wheel to turn, similar to a truck or car.

Load Rating Plate
This plate is located inside the cabin. This load rating plate details the weight limitations for each and every specific forklift.
