Clark Counterbalance Forklifts
The forklift is a material handling machinery used to raise and move loads from one place to another. Every component of a forklift has a specific function. Various parts can be used to move the load vertically or horizontally.
The forklift mast refers to all the parts that lower and lift the load. There are different types of masts for lifting loads to various heights: triplex, quad, simplex and duplex.
There are four various ways you could power a forklift: electric, gas, diesel and propane. The battery is located inside the cab beneath the seat. The propane tank is on the back of the truck. The fuel tank on diesel and gas forklifts is underneath the back of the truck.
Situated within the center of the truck is the forklift cab. This is where the operator sits and accesses all the controls and informational gauges. The gas pedal, steering wheel, brake, lifting controls and tilting controls are all located inside the cab.
Carrying all the biggest forklift components is the truck frame. This consists of the counterweights located at the back that prevents the truck from tipping over when loaded. The frame consists of the overhead guard that protects the operator. The undercarriage holds the wheels, driveshaft and axles.
