Caterpillar Diesel Forklifts

The kind of vehicle usually found within factories, warehouses and different work locations where moving heavy materials from one location to another is required is called a forklift. The mast is the mechanism located on the front of the forklift that hydraulically lowers and lifts the load. The "cat" is the protected area where the operator of the forklift sits.

Forklifts are capable of carrying loads between one and five tons in weight. Various types can be utilized to lift shipping containers and loads that are much heavier.

The tires of a forklift should be inspected and maintained frequently. The types of tires on various forklifts differ based on factors such as weight of the loads, ground surfaces and frequency of use. Each and every driver of a forklift must have access to replacement tires, a forklift jack and tire press.

Tire Maintenance Instructions
Perform tire inspections regularly. Watch for indications of damage and wear to the tires. If the wear on the tire exceeds 40%, it needs to be replaced.

When you buy tires, be certain you purchase the right type - pneumatic, polyurethane or solid.

When you have to replace the tires, the forklift jack must be positioned under the tire. You can easily change the tires if you lift the forklift high enough.

You can use the tire press to pull the tire from the rim and remove the damaged tire. Install the new tire and properly secure it. If you are changing more than one tire and you have just one jack, lower the forklift, then reposition the jack at the next tire.

A repair company could offer on-site tire repair. If the tire is extremely large for both in-house and mobile tire presses, the damaged tire must be transported to a shop that has a stationary tire press.
