Komatsu IC Forklift

Komatsu IC Forklift

Forklift Basics
A forklift is an all-around machinery. It is a small vehicle that has attachments on the front which allow it to lift and move various loads. Forklifts are common features inside factories and warehouses. A forklift operator must obtain special training, especially since these types of machines function on rear-wheel drive and this could be difficult to get used to until one is familiar with it. Because the forklift carries its load at the front, the center of gravity is always shifting and this results in the machinery being unstable quite often.

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

Forklift Components
When searching for information on lift truck components and aftermarket forklift parts, it is a great idea to check out the Internet or your local phone book. Numerous places offer various forklift components, forklift accessories and support products.

Structural Parts
The overhead guard is part of the top portion of the forklift, whilst the foot guard separates the load from the cabin. A counterweight is located at the forklift's back and is installed there that allows you to keep the machinery from falling over.

The tines and Apron
The load apron is usually responsible for keeping the cargo positioned well on the metal arms, or forks, cradle the cargo. The forks could be tilted in order to balance the load. This is done utilizing the hydraulic hoist arm and the tilting ram that powers the upward fork movement.

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

Mechanics
The forklifts IC engine enables the power to be sent to the equipment wheels, providing the lift truck with movement. The wheels have brakes installed in order to allow the operator the chance to slow down or stop the machine as needed.

Controls
The lift is operated via hoist controls which look like a bunch of stick-shaped levers. The lift truck is driven by using the steering wheel to turn, similar to a truck or car.

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