Caterpillar Diesel Forklifts

Caterpillar Diesel Forklifts

The kind of vehicle usually found inside warehouses, factories and various work locations where moving heavy materials from one location to another is necessary is referred to as a forklift. The mast is the mechanism situated on the front of the forklift which hydraulically raises and lowers the load. The "cat" is the protected area where the driver of the forklift sits.

Forklifts are capable of carrying loads between one and five tons in weight. Some kinds could be utilized to carry shipping containers and loads which are much heavier.

Forklift tires should be maintained and checked regularly. The types of tires on different forklifts differ according to factors such as weight of the loads, ground surfaces and frequency of use. Every forklift operator should have access to a forklift jack, tire press and replacement tires.

Tire Maintenance Instructions
You must regularly check the tires. Watch for signs of damage and wear to the tires. If the wear on the tire exceeds 40 percent, it should be replaced.

When buying tires, ensure that you are buying the right kind - polyurethane, solid or pneumatic.

When the tire needs replacing, position the forklift jack under the tire and raise the forklift high enough that you could easily change the tires.

In order to remove the damaged tire, pull the tire from the rim utilizing the tire press. Install the new tire and properly secure it. If you are changing more than one tire and you just have one jack, lower the forklift, then reposition the jack at the next tire.

On-site tire repair can be performed by a repair company. If the tire is too large for both mobile and in-house tire presses, the damaged tire should be transported to a shop that has a stationary tire press.
