What are Forklifts?
Forklifts are compact industrial machines that can lift and move heavy objects on the forks located at the front through hydraulics and roller chain pulleys. They are mostly the inhabitants of warehouses and storage facilities.
They come in electrical and combustion engine versions – varying in power – and have small operators' areas for driving and controlling the machine.
Forklifts can have various features depending on the usage, but they have similar structures. Some standard features include:
The frame is the most basic forklift feature. It provides the base for the operator's area, fork, mast, counterweight, and wheels.
Since forklifts lift heavy loads in the front, a counterweight is installed at the machine's rear end to keep it stable during operation. The weight is usually cast iron.
Forklifts can either have a combustion engine – located beneath the operator's seat – or lead Acid batteries for electric vehicles. The combustion engine may use any kind of fuel.
Mast and Carriage
The mast is the vertical metallic structure in the front that is used by the carriage with an attached fork to move up and down. Both components use interlocked rails – for horizontal control – and rollers.
The main uses of forklifts are:
Forklifts are most used in warehouses. They load and unload heavy objects from trucks and shelves.
Forklifts can serve as snow or sand plows with modified fronts. They prove extremely handy in harsh winters when heavy snowing slows down the moving processes outside a warehouse.
Forklifts are used at loading docks to load and unload objects from containers and ships.
