Raw Materials
The telescoping boom rough terrain forklift's cab, body, boom and frame are generally made by a forklift manufacturer. Steel is the most common materials utilized to make these as they have tremendous strength. Sometimes aluminum or steel forgings are utilized also. It is common for non-metallic materials like for instance nylon plastic blocks to be used as guides within the boom assembly. The other components are usually bought as finished products and the lift truck maker installs them.

Pre-assembled bought products can consist of several of the following: seat, transmission, axles, engine, tires, wheels and hoses, backup-alarm, lights, hydraulic cylinders and gauges. Usually, some materials such as the fuel and lubricants and hydraulic fluids are purchased in bulk. These liquids are added as required when the machinery is assembled and has passed the meticulous testing sessions.

The common design that is most standard of telescoping boom rough terrain forklifts is a narrow and long design that has a set of wheels at the front of the model and another set situated towards the rear of the machine. The unit's boom is mounted at the forklift's rear off of a pivot feature that is raised a few feet above the frame's level. Generally, the cab is mounted on the frame structure's left-hand side. Normally, the cab's bottom half is low and situated between the tires. The hydraulic fuel tank and the fuel tank are mounted opposite the cab on the right-hand side. Along the center-line of the vehicle, the transmission and the engine are mounted in the frame.

Various manufacturers have contributed their own unique designs beyond this basic configuration. Now, there are many different options offered on the market. Certain units of forklifts make use of a single hydraulic cylinder to be able to raise the boom, and other models make use of 2 cylinders. Some units use a side-to-side hydraulic frame leveling capability. This particular feature allows the frame to tilt up to 10 degrees relative to the axles so as to allow the machinery to compensate for extreme axle articulation. This is used for example, when the tires on one side of the lift truck are located down in a rut and the tires on the other side of the equipment are up, situated on a mound of dirt.

One more common design feature comprises fork attachments that are capable of swinging up to 45 degrees both left and right, in order to enable accurate load placement.
