The forklift truck is an extremely big and powerful equipment able to work efficiently and smoothly, raising and moving things in material handling orientated tasks. Many components must be replaced regularly due to damages and breakages.
The lift truck is a really versatile machine, with a wide variety of accessories able to be fitted onto the machinery. These accessories could increase the lift truck's capabilities and expand the jobs they are regularly able to complete. Several of the key different forklift parts and accessories are described below.
Fork extensions are designed to fit over the forklift's standard forks. These forks are able to be changed completely, or different components could be added to them so the truck can lift various types of cargo like for example telescopic loads, baskets, rollers, among others.
Forklift Seals and Bearings
The bearings and seals on the lift truck allow the inner workings on the equipment to run efficiently and optimally. Bearings enable two moving components of the machine to work together smoothly, without any friction. If not fitted correctly, bearings and seals could occasionally wear down or even break and these components might need to be replaced occasionally. If a bearing is the proper kind of bearing used for the machine and it is fitted properly, this lift truck component can easily outlive the life expectancy of the entire machinery.
The forklift's cab is the part of the equipment where the operator sits and performs maneuvers. The cab can be open or it may have a roof, depending upon the specific model. On a work place, this lift truck part usually has a roof to minimize the risk of falling materials and comply with safety measures.
Brake Forklift Parts
Forklifts trucks have brakes which are required to be regularly checked in order to ensure they are in good working condition. Often, these components would need to be replaced due to extended wear or damage.
Wheels and Tires
The lift trucks wheels and tires are the parts most usually damaged. Problems occur because of slashes from rough and uneven floor boards and punctures from sharp things on the floor.
