Forklift Basics
Forklifts are very handy machines. The equipment are typically small vehicles with numerous attachments which allow it to move and lift loads. Factories and warehouses all over the world will utilize forklifts. The operator of a forklift should acquire special training, especially since these machinery operate on rear-wheel drive and this can be hard to get used to until one is familiar with it. As the forklift carries its load at the front, the center of gravity is continually shifting and this results in the machine being frequently unstable.

Parts
Typically, a forklift driver generally sits in an area known as the "cat." This area offers metal protection which stretches overhead like a roof. On the front of the equipment, the mast is situated. The mast is the mechanism which raises and lowers the load utilizing hydraulic cylinders.

Forklift Components
When looking for information on forklift components and aftermarket forklift components, it is a good idea to check out the Internet or your local phone directory. Numerous places provide various support products, forklift components and lift truck accessories.

Structural Parts
The top portion of a forklift is known as the overhead guard. The foot guard is the portion that separates the load from the cabin. A counterweight is located at the back of the forklift and is installed there in an effort to keep the machinery from falling over.

The forks and Apron
Usually, the load apron is responsible for keeping the load in place while the forks, or metal arms, cradle the load. The blades are capable to be tilted in order to balance the cargo. This is done utilizing the hydraulic hoist arm and the tilting ram that powers the upward movement of the fork.

The Lift Structure
The guard of the load apron extends well over the apron. It works to keep the cargo stable as the tines carry it along the track of the arms of the upright.

Mechanics
The internal engine on the forklift allows power to be sent to the wheels of the machine. This is what moves the forklift. The wheels have brakes installed so as to allow the operator the chance to stop or slow down the machinery as needed.

Controls
Lifting loads is operated utilizing hoist controls that are located inside the cat. The lift truck is driven by utilizing the steering wheel to turn, similar to a car or truck.

Load Rating Plate
The specific safety rating plate is bolted inside of the cabin. This load rating plate details the weight restrictions for every specific type of forklift.
