Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

The rough terrain lift truck is a great machinery for numerous outdoor material handling and construction tasks. Typically, rough terrain forklift units are used to lift objects such as concrete, bricks, steel beams, lumber and various other heavy stuff.

There are two key ways that a rough terrain unit lift truck differs from the traditional lift truck: they utilize internal combustion engines for their power source and they utilize thick treaded, inflatable tires to allow operators to drive them over uneven or loose terrain.

The rough terrain forklift should be a strong and rugged equipment, with a lot of 4 wheel drive units being able to handle a lot of tons of material. These equipment are carefully calibrated in order to offer a counterbalance at the back of the lift. This counterbalance is what prevents the load from making the lift tip forward. Some rough terrain units offer 4-wheel drive as well as 4-wheel steering. The majority of rough terrain lift trucks utilize a hydraulic system that is responsible for lowering and lifting the forks.

The rough terrain model is almost exclusively powered by an IC engine. These engines offer more power, greater speeds and superior acceleration over the electric engine. There are a variety of different IC engines which run on various other kinds of fuels. Like for instance, some of the most common types of fuels for these models comprise gasoline, compressed natural gas or CNG, liquid propane or LP and diesel. Diesel is the most common fuel choice and it is also the cheapest, however, it is not as commonly found as gas. One of the key benefits of the IC or internal combustion engines is that they really lessen refueling time.

The tire choice on a rough terrain forklift is an extremely important factor. With the right tires, rough terrain forklifts are capable of riding over uneven ground because of the traction provided by the tires. There are some rough terrain lift trucks which enable people to drive these equipment over ice, rocks, wood, mud and snow, virtually transforming them into an unstoppable equipment. The majority of these tires are similar to conventional tires found on trucks and automobiles and are filled with air, although, certain units are made out of solid rubber.

A great addition to any construction site is a rough terrain lift truck. These machines allow operators to move thousands of tons of material over hazardous and rough ground.
