Lift Truck Components in More Detail
There are many parts which make up a lift truck. The forklifts key parts comprise the truck frame, the engine components, the tilt cylinders, the overhead guard and the wheels. Additionally, a lift truck consists of a variety of attachments. All the components making up a lift truck are of equal importance as they work together to make the machine's functions possible. The subsequent paragraphs describe some of the forklift parts in detail.

The Overhead Guard - this guard forms the forklift truck's metal roof. It sits over the cab area and protects the machine operator whilst he or she is sitting and driving. The overhead guard ensures that nothing falling from above onto the truck would hurt the driver or damage the controls in the cab. The overhead guard is essential to the frame assembly on various models.

The Mast - Mounted either to the front axle or the forklift frame, the mast is the vertical lift truck component made of interlocking rails. The mast enables the forks to move upwards and down whilst providing lateral stability. The interlocking rails can either have bushings or bushings as guides. There are a couple of ways the mast may be operated: chain operated with motive power provided by a hydraulic motor or hydraulically by one or more hydraulic cylinders.

Lift Truck Carriage - the forks and different other kinds of attachments are mounted to the carriage. The carriage is attached to the mast directly to the hydraulic cylinder or it is connected by chains. To allow the forks to be lowered and raised, the carriage may have either rollers or bushings to guide it in the interlocking mast rails.

Load Back Rest - While the carriage is raised to full height, there is a back rest made of metal which keeps a load from falling backwards. The back rest is either bolted or welded on to the carriage.

Lift Truck Attachments - a variety of attachments can be fixed to the front of the forklift truck. The most common type of attachment is forks. In addition, there are L-shaped members, rollers, rotators, roll clamps, pole handlers and so on. These different types of attachments are helpful for transporting various types of loads.
