Clark Counterbalance Forklifts
A kind of machine in the material handling industry that can be used to raise and move loads from one place to another is called a forklift. Each and every component of a forklift has a particular function. Various components can be used to transport the load either horizontally or vertically.

There are four various ways you can power a forklift: gas, electric, diesel and propane. The battery is situated within the cab underneath the seat. The propane tank is on the rear of the truck. The fuel tank on diesel and gas forklifts is under the rear of the truck.
The forklift cab is located within the center of the truck. This is where the operator sits and accesses all the informational gauges and controls. The gas pedal, steering wheel, brake, lifting controls and tilting controls are all situated in the cab.
Carrying all the largest forklift parts is the frame of the truck. This includes the counterweights situated at the back that prevents the truck from tipping over when loaded. The frame includes the overhead guard that protects the operator. The undercarriage holds the wheels, driveshaft and axles.
