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

Several of the pre-assembled bought products include the transmission, seat, engine, axles, wheels, hoses and tires, lights, back-up alarms, hydraulic cylinders and gauges. Most often, some materials such as the fuel and lubricants and hydraulic fluids are bought in bulk. These liquids are added as needed when the equipment is assembled and has passed the rigorous testing sessions.

The common design that is most standard of telescoping boom rough terrain forklifts is a long and narrow design that has a set of wheels at the front of the model and another set situated towards the rear of the machinery. The model's boom is mounted at the rear of the forklift off of a pivot feature that is raised several feet above the frame's level. Normally, the cab is mounted on the left-hand side of the frame structure. Normally, the bottom half of the cab is low and situated between the tires. The hydraulic fuel tank and the fuel tank are mounted opposite the cab on the right-hand side. Along the center-line of the vehicle, the engine and the transmission are mounted in the frame.

Beyond this basic configuration, various manufacturers have contributed to their own unique design. On the market now, there are numerous options available. Some models of forklifts utilize a single hydraulic cylinder to be able to elevate the boom, and other units use 2 cylinders. Some units make use of a side-to-side hydraulic frame leveling capability. This feature allows the frame to tilt up to 10 degrees relative to the axles so as to enable the equipment to compensate for extreme axle articulation. This is utilized for instance, when the tires on one side of the lift truck are located down in a rut and the tires on the other side of the machine are up, situated on a mound of dirt.

Another popular design feature comprises fork attachments that are capable of swinging up to 45 degrees both right and left, in order to allow precise load placement.
