Caterpillar Container Forklift

Caterpillar Container Forklift

A container forklift is specially utilized to unload and load huge, heavy freight containers. They are utilized to transport freight off and on trains, ships and truck beds. Container forklifts are the largest and most durable kinds of forklifts made. They need to be very maneuverable on uneven terrain and have enough torque and power to raise large containers safely. They typically have big pneumatic tires and heavy-duty diesel engines.

Like all kinds of forklifts, a container forklift utilizes forks to be able to raise the containers. Forks must be positioned to make sure the load is secure during transport. Several container forklift models are only meant to raise the containers a few meters off the ground. Other container handlers utilize a different technique for lifting containers to greater heights. A container handler makes use of an apparatus attached to the front of the vehicle to clamp down on either end of the container like jaws. The machinery is counterbalanced with weights to be able to maintain stability.

The main purpose of a container forklift is to lift and transfer containers. Standard forklifts do not have sufficient reach for working in ports. The forks are rated according to the maximum weight they could handle. The capabilities of the forklift should be posted prominently in the cockpit and should never be exceeded.
