Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

The rough terrain forklift is a great machinery for numerous outdoor material handling and construction tasks. Normally, rough terrain forklift units are used to carry items like concrete, bricks, steel beams, lumber and other heavy items.

A rough terrain lift truck is different form a regular lift truck in 2 main ways: they use thick treaded, inflatable tires to allow operators to drive them over uneven or loose terrain and they utilize IC engines for their power source.

These pieces of machines are extremely strong and rugged vehicles. A lot of models of rough terrain, heavy duty forklifts are capable of lifting several tons of material at the same time. These machinery are calibrated carefully in order to provide a counterbalance at the rear of the lift. This counterbalance is what stops the load from making the lift tip forward. Certain rough terrain units provide 4-wheel steering as well as 4-wheel drive. Most rough terrain lift trucks make use of a hydraulic system that is responsible for raising and lowering the forks.

The rough terrain unit is almost exclusively powered by an internal combustion engine. These engines provide more power, greater speeds and superior acceleration over the electric engine. There are a range of different IC engines which run on other types of fuels. For instance, some of the most common fuel choices for these models comprise gasoline, compressed natural gas or CNG, diesel and LP or liquid propane. Diesel is the most common type of fuel and it is also the least expensive, however, it is not as commonly found as gas. One of the main benefits of the IC or internal combustion engines is that they greatly lessen refueling time.

One more very important factor on the rough terrain forklift is the choice in tire. Rough terrains should have tires that enable for movement across uneven terrain. There are some rough terrain forklifts which allow people to drive these machinery over ice, rocks, wood, snow and mud, practically transforming them into an unstoppable machinery. The majority of these tires are similar to standard tires found on cars and trucks and are filled with air, however, certain units are made out of solid rubber.

A great addition to any construction site is a rough terrain forklift. These types of machinery enable operators to move thousands of tons of material over hazardous and uneven ground.
