Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough terrain forklifts are excellent for many outdoor construction and loading requirements. Usually, rough terrain lift truck units are used to lift objects like steel beams, lumber, concrete, bricks and various other heavy things.

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 loose or uneven terrain and they utilize internal combustion engines for their power source.

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

The rough terrain unit is almost exclusively powered by an internal combustion engine. These engines provide more power, superior acceleration and greater speeds over the electric engine. There are a variety of different IC engines which run on different other types of fuels. Like for example, amongst the most common kinds of fuels for these models include 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 cheapest, however, it is not as frequently found as gas. Among the internal combustion or IC engines' key advantages is that they greatly lessen refueling time.

The tire choice on a rough terrain lift truck is an extremely important factor. With the right tires, rough terrain forklifts are capable of riding over uneven ground because of the traction provided by the tires. There are certain rough terrain lift trucks that enable people to drive these machines over rocks, wood, ice, snow and mud, virtually transforming them into an unstoppable equipment. The majority of these tires are similar to traditional tires found on automobiles and trucks and are filled with air, however, some models are made out of solid rubber.

A great addition to any construction site is a rough terrain lift truck. These types of equipment allow operators to move thousands of tons of material over rough and hazardous ground.
