This great equipment, the lift truck is constructed of various components, including the essential carriage, the power source, the engine and the wheels. Forklifts normally have different types of attachments as well. The following are several of the most important parts of a forklift.

Electric motor forklifts receive their power from a battery or fuel cells.

All other parts of a lift truck are connected to the base, including the mast, wheels, axles overhead guard and counterweight. Fuel and hydraulic fluid tanks can also be part of the frame assembly.

Counterweight Forklift Parts - While lifting heavy loads, the counterweight enables the machine to be balanced. This specific part is cast iron and comes connected to the rear of the lift truck.
