Caterpillar Container Forklift

Caterpillar Container Forklift

A container forklift is specifically utilized to unload and load huge, heavy freight containers. They are utilized to transport freight off and on ships, truck beds and trains. Container forklifts are the most sturdy and largest types of forklifts manufactured. They have to be very maneuverable on uneven terrain and have enough power and torque to raise large containers safely. They typically have heavy-duty diesel engines and big pneumatic tires.

Like all types of forklifts, a container forklift utilizes forks to be able to raise the containers. Forks need to be positioned to make certain the load is secure during transport. Some container forklift models are just designed to raise the containers several meters off the ground. Other container handlers utilize a different method for carrying containers to greater heights. A container handler makes use of a device affixed to the front of the vehicle to clamp down on either end of the container like jaws. The machine is counterbalanced with weights to be able to maintain stability.

The main purpose of a container forklift is to raise and transfer containers. Standard forklifts do not have enough reach for working in ports. The forks are rated according to the maximum weight they can handle. The capabilities of the forklift must be posted prominently in the cockpit and must never be exceeded.
