Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Use a Pneumatic Forklift
Pneumatic forklifts are common in shipping and warehouse operations. Also referred to as pump trucks or pallet trucks, they are used to transport supplies and things around on wooden pallets utilizing metal forks mounted on a wheeled counterweight. The counterweight contains a pump which raises the forks off the ground. A pallet truck is designed to be operated by one person.

Pallet trucks must be operated with care to avoid loss of control while lifting heavy loads. Machine must be inspected prior to operating. Clear the wheels area of any obstacle. Check that the handle could turn smoothly. The pallet should be carefully stacked in order to ensure that nothing would fall off during transportation.

In order to release air in the pump and lower the forks, squeeze the lever situated on the inside of the metal loop on the end of the pallet truck's handle. The forks can then be pushed into the slots of the pallet. The forks must be in the middle to ensure even distribution of the pallet's weight across them. Lift the forks from the ground by pumping the pneumatic lift's handle until the pallet has cleared the ground completely. Do not raise the pallet very high or the forklift could unbalance.

Pull on the handle and drag it behind you if you want to move the pallet. It is really not safe to push the pallet ahead of you since the momentum can cause it to go out of control. Take turns slowly and don't attempt to stop suddenly. Stop slowly, squeeze the lever, and the forks would lower to the ground. Lastly, remove the forks from the pallet by pulling them out. Return the pallet truck to its permanent location.
