Raw Materials
The telescoping boom rough terrain forklift's cab, body, frame and boom are usually produced by a forklift maker. Steel is the most common materials utilized to make these because they have incredible strength. At times steel forgings or aluminum are used also. It is common for non-metallic materials such as nylon plastic blocks to be utilized as guides within the boom assembly. The other components are typically bought as finished products and the lift truck manufacturer installs them.

Several of the pre-assembled bought products consist of the transmission, seat, engine, axles, hoses, tires and wheels, lights, back-up alarms, gauges and hydraulic cylinders. Normally, some materials such as the hydraulic fluid and fuel and lubricants are purchased in bulk. These liquids are added as required once the machine is assembled and has passed the rigorous testing sessions.

Design
The common design which is most typical of telescoping boom rough terrain forklifts is a long and narrow design that has a set of wheels at the front of the unit and another set situated towards the rear of the machine. The boom part of the unit is mounted at the rear of the forklift off of a pivot feature that is elevated a few feet above the frame's level. Usually, the cab is mounted on the frame structure's left-hand side. Typically, the cab's bottom half is low and located between the tires. The fuel tank and the hydraulic fuel tank are mounted opposite the cab on the right-hand side. Along the center-line of the vehicle, the transmission and the engine are mounted in the frame.

Beyond this basic configuration, different manufacturers have contributed to their own unique design. On the market these days, there are numerous options available. Certain models of forklifts make use of a single hydraulic cylinder to be able to raise the boom, and other units make use of 2 cylinders. Some units use a side-to-side hydraulic frame leveling capability. This feature enables the frame to tilt up to 10 degrees relative to the axles in order to allow the machinery to compensate for extreme axle articulation. Like for example, this is utilized when the tires on one side of the forklift are situated down in a rut and the tires on the other side of the machinery are up, situated on a mound of dirt.

Fork attachments are another popular design feature capable of swinging both left and right up to 45 degrees, which increases the precise load placement.
