Caterpillar Telescopic Forklifts
In the industry of transporting heavy materials around a warehouse, conventional forklifts are usually utilized. Other applications, such as mining, require forklifts built for rough terrain. Telescopic forklifts are ideal for off-road application. Specific design features of a telescopic forklift should be taken into consideration prior to buying.
Telescopic Forklift Features
A telescopic forklift is an enclosed vehicle with a protective covering that features large windows. The big wheels are suited to off-road travel. The forklift is designed to maneuver easily through a work site. An extendable boom is mounted to the forklift's back. There are numerous options for accessories to attach to the tip of the boom. Like for instance, the forklift could be outfitted with a bucket or a fork attachment. There are lots of forklift companies these days. The leaders in the industry are Caterpillar, Hyster, Komatsu and Bobcat. These companies all produce high quality forklifts for industrial application.
Selecting the right telescopic forklift for the intended application needs some consideration of your company's particular lifting requirements. Prior to buying a telescopic forklift, determine your largest lifting weight requirements, and then choose a forklift which could lift more than that. If the telescopic forklift is too small to handle the maximum loads of the company, a tip over can result.
Make sure that the equipment is well maintained if your company chooses to purchase something that is used. Inspect the treads on the telescopic forklift's tires. If the tires are worn, they would need to be replaced to prevent accidents caused by the forklift slipping and turning over.
