Caterpillar Telescopic Forklifts

Telescopic Forklifts
Conventional forklifts are frequently used in industry to move heavy supplies around a warehouse. Other applications, like mining, need forklifts meant for rough terrain. Telescopic forklifts are ideal for off-road use. Particular design features of a telescopic forklift should be considered prior to buying.

Telescopic Forklift Features
A telescopic forklift is an enclosed vehicle with a protective covering that features big windows. The huge wheels are suitable for off-road travel. The forklift is designed to maneuver easily through a work location. An extendable boom is mounted to the forklift's rear. There are lots of options for accessories to attach to the tip of the boom. For instance, the forklift can be equipped with a fork attachment or a bucket. There are a lot of forklift manufacturers these days. The leaders within the industry are Caterpillar, Hyster, Komatsu and Bobcat. These companies all manufacture high quality forklifts for industrial application.

Weight Capacity
Choosing the best telescopic forklift for the intended application requires some consideration of your company's particular lifting needs. Prior to purchasing a telescopic forklift, determine your biggest lifting weight needs, and after that select a forklift which could lift more than that. If the telescopic forklift is too small to handle the maximum loads of the business, a tip over can result.

Tires
If your company is considering the purchase of second-hand equipment, be sure that it is well maintained. Check the treads on the tires of the telescopic forklift. If the tires are worn, they must be replaced to avoid accidents caused by the forklift slipping and turning over.
