The lift truck truck is an extremely big and strong equipment able to function efficiently and smoothly, lifting and moving things in material handling orientated tasks. Lots of components should be replaced regularly due to breakages and damages.
Forklifts are very versatile machines. A variety of different accessories can be fitted onto the equipment in order to increase their capabilities and expand the tasks they are regularly able to complete. Several of the main different forklift parts and accessories are described below.
The fork extensions are the forks on the forklift. These forks are able to be changed entirely, or various parts can be added to them so the truck can raise various kinds of loads such as rollers, telescopic loads, baskets, among others.
Forklift Bearings and Seals
The seals and bearings are particular forklift components which enable the inner workings of the machine to function in an optimum and efficient manner. Bearings allow two moving parts of the equipment to work together smoothly, without any friction. If not correctly fitted, bearings and seals could occasionally break and wear down and these components might have to be replaced occasionally. If a bearing is the correct kind of bearing for the machine and it is fitted correctly, this lift truck component could easily outlive the life expectancy of the whole equipment.
The forklift's cab is the part of the machinery where the operator sits and performs maneuvers. The cab may be open or it can have a roof, based upon the specific unit. On a work place, this forklift component typically has a roof to comply with safety reasons and reduce the risk of falling materials.
Brake Forklift Parts
Forklifts trucks have brakes that are required to be regularly tested in order to ensure they are in good working condition. Often, these components must be replaced because of extended wear or damage.
Tires and Wheels
The lift trucks wheels and tires are the components most often damaged. Problems occur due to punctures from sharp objects on the floor and slashes from uneven and rough floor boards.
