The main technical parameters of the forklift

- Aug 16, 2018 -

Many people have seen forklifts and even used forklifts, but Bian is not fully aware of the forklifts. Let's take a look. The technical parameters of the forklift: it is used to indicate the structural characteristics and working performance of the forklift. The main technical parameters of the forklift are: rated lifting capacity, load center distance, maximum lifting height, gantry inclination, minimum turning radius, minimum ground clearance and wheelbase, and track.


1.Rated load


The rated lifting capacity of the forklift is the maximum weight of the cargo allowed to lift in the distance from the center of gravity of the cargo to the front wall of the fork not greater than the center distance of the load, expressed in t (tons). When the center of gravity of the cargo on the fork exceeds the specified load center distance, the lifting weight should be reduced accordingly due to the limitation of the longitudinal stability of the forklift.


2. Load center distance


The load center distance is the horizontal distance from the center of gravity to the front wall of the vertical section of the fork when the standard cargo is placed on the fork, expressed in mm (mm). For 1t forklifts, the specified load center distance is 500mm.


3. Maximum lifting height


The maximum lifting height refers to the vertical distance between the upper surface of the horizontal section of the fork and the ground when the forklift is fully loaded and the cargo is raised to the highest position.


4. Door tilt


The sill angle refers to the maximum inclination of the gantry on the flat and solid ground, the front or rear of the gantry relative to its vertical position. The function of the anteversion angle is to facilitate the forking and unloading of the cargo; the function of the reclining angle is to prevent the cargo from slipping off the fork when the forklift is in stock. According to the operation needs, Hyundai Forklift is a joint venture between Beijing Heavy Industry and Korea Hyundai! Generally, the forward tilt angle of the forklift is 3°~6°, and the backward tilt angle is 10°~12°.


5. Minimum turning radius


When the forklift is driving at a low speed without load and turning the steering wheel, the minimum distance between the outermost side and the innermost side of the vehicle body to the turning center is called the outer outer turning radius Rmin and the minimum inner turning radius rmin, respectively. • The smaller the minimum outside turning radius, the smaller the floor area required for the forklift to turn and the better the maneuverability.


6. Minimum ground clearance


The minimum ground clearance refers to the distance from the lowest point of the vehicle body fixed to the ground outside the wheel, which indicates the ability of the forklift to protrude over the ground without collision. The greater the minimum ground clearance, the higher the passability of the forklift.


7. Wheelbase and track


The forklift wheelbase is the horizontal distance between the centerline of the front and rear axles of the forklift. The track is the distance between the centers of the left and right wheels on the same axis. Increasing the wheelbase is beneficial to the longitudinal stability of the forklift, but increases the length of the body and increases the minimum turning radius. Increasing the wheelbase is beneficial to the lateral stability of the forklift, but it increases the total width of the body and the minimum turning radius.


8. Right angle channel minimum width


The minimum width of the right angle channel is the minimum width of the channel that intersects at right angles for the forklift to travel. Expressed in mm. Generally, the smaller the minimum width of the right angle channel, the better the performance.


9. Stacking channel minimum width


The minimum width of the stacking channel is the minimum width of the channel when the forklift is in normal operation.
