CAT Telehandler

CAT Telehandler

There are 5 key steps to making certain that safety is a top priority. The initial step is completing a Walk-Around Inspection to be able to assure that the unit is visually safe. After that assess if the work location is safe to use with a Worksite Assessment. The Function Test is the third step in order to determine whether or not the model is working in a safe manner. The 4th thing to think about is Proper Operation, in order to determine whether or not the model is safely working. Last of all, Proper Shutdown must be checked so as to make certain the unit is capable of shutting down properly and is in a safe place.

There is a machinery that lifts heavy weights to impressive heights upon a triangular footprint at the center of the 5 steps and this regulation. The key goal is to keep the telehandler upright, but of course there are dangers.

The two front wheels, and the rear-axle pivot point make up the telehandler's triangular base. Typically the back axle oscillates and hence, the back wheels are not a part of the base. The telehandler remains upright as long as the equipment's center of gravity, which is defined as the point in 3 dimensions around which the weight of the equipment is balanced, stays oriented inside the stability triangle.

When a load is positioned on the forks while the boom is down, the center of gravity forward and down. The load if raised would change the center of gravity upwards to the rear. At the same time, when this happens, the stability triangle shrinks. Therefore, the higher you lift a load, the less of a margin for error you have as the stability triangle lessens.

With a stable but small stability triangle, it leaves less room for the center of gravity to move right or left. This wandering action can change the stability triangle, leaving less room for the frame to remain balanced if it is not completely level. For example, imagine the center of gravity resembling a plumb bob hanging from the boom. You can always find the center of gravity someplace on a totally vertical line between a point on the boom and the center of the ground. If the frame is not level, the center of gravity will not be oriented over the centerline of the machine. The stability triangle is continuously aligned with the centerline of the telehandler.
