Caterpillar Container Forklift

Caterpillar Container Forklift

A type of equipment that is specifically used to unload and load heavy, large freight containers is called a container forklift. They are utilized to transport freight off and on truck beds, trains and ships. Container forklifts are the most sturdy and biggest kinds of forklifts manufactured. They have to be extremely maneuverable on uneven terrain and have sufficient torque and power to safely raise bulky containers. Usually, they have large pneumatic tires and heavy-duty diesel engines.

Like all types of forklifts, a container forklift utilizes forks to raise the containers. Forks must be positioned to make certain the load is secure during transport. Several container forklift models are just meant to raise the containers several meters off the ground. Other container handlers utilize a different method for lifting containers to greater heights. A container handler utilizes a device affixed to the front of the vehicle to clamp down on either end of the container like jaws. The machine is counterbalanced with weights to be able to maintain stability.

Carrying and transporting containers is the main purpose of a container forklift. Standard forklifts do not have sufficient reach for working in ports. The forks are rated according to the maximum weight they can handle. The capabilities of the forklift should never be exceeded and must be posted prominently in the cockpit.
