Forklift Basics
A forklift is an all-around equipment. It is a small vehicle which has attachments on the front that allow it to move and lift various loads. Forklifts are common features inside factories and warehouses. The operator of a forklift needs to obtain special training, specially since these machinery function on rear-wheel drive and this can be hard to get used to until one is familiar with it. Because the forklift carries its load at the front, the center of gravity is always shifting and this results in the equipment being unstable quite often.

The lift truck operator would sit inside the area known as the "cat." Its an area protected by metal bars that stretch overhead similar to a roof. On the front of the equipment, the mast is situated. The mast is the mechanism which raises and lowers the load utilizing hydraulic cylinders.

Forklift Parts
It is always a good idea to check the internet and the local area phone directory when searching for remanufactured forklift components and aftermarket forklift parts information. Lots of places offer a full range of forklift accessories, support products and forklift parts.

Structural Components
The top portion of a lift truck is referred to as the overhead guard. The foot guard is the portion which separates the load from the cabin. A counterweight is situated at the back of the forklift and is installed there in an effort to keep the machinery from falling over.

The blades and Apron
The load apron is typically responsible for keeping the load positioned well on the metal arms, or forks, cradle the load. The forks could be tilted in order to balance the cargo. This is accomplished utilizing the tilting ram and the hydraulic hoist arm which powers the upward fork movement.

The Lift Structure
The load apron guard extends above the apron. It functions to keep the load balanced when the tines carry it along the track of the arms of the upright.

The internal engine on the forklift enables power to be sent to the wheels of the machine. This is what moves the forklift. The wheels have brakes installed in order to allow the driver the chance to slow down or stop the equipment as required.

The lift is operated using hoist controls which resemble a bunch of stick-shaped levers. The lift truck is driven by utilizing the steering wheel to turn, like a car or truck.

Load Rating Plate
The specific safety rating plate is bolted in the cabin. This load rating plate details the weight limitations for every particular forklift.
