Caterpillar Diesel Forklifts

Caterpillar Diesel Forklifts

Forklifts are vehicles normally found within factories, warehouses and various work locations where it is necessary to move heavy materials from one location to another. The mast is the mechanism located on the front of the forklift that hydraulically lowers and raises the load. The "cat" is the area which is protected where the forklift driver sits.

Forklifts are capable of lifting loads between one and five tons in weight. Some models could be used to carry shipping containers and much heavier loads.

The tires of a forklift should be checked and maintained frequently. The kinds of tires on various forklifts differ based on factors such as frequency of use, weight of the loads and ground surfaces. Each and every driver of a forklift must have access to a forklift jack, tire press and replacement tires.

Tire Maintenance Instructions
You should regularly check the tires. Watch for indications of damage and wear to the tires. If the wear on the tire exceeds 40 percent, it should be replaced.

When buying tires, make sure that you are purchasing the correct kind - solid, pneumatic or polyurethane.

When you need to replace the tires, the forklift jack must be positioned under the tire. You can easily change the tires if you raise the forklift high enough.

To remove the damaged tire, pull the tire from the rim utilizing the tire press. Install the new tire and properly secure it. If you are changing more than one tire and you have only one jack, lower the forklift, then reposition the jack at the next tire.

On-site tire repair can be performed by a repair company. If the tire is too large for both mobile and in-house tire presses, the tire that is damaged would have to be transported to a shop that has a stationary tire press.
