Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Utilize a Pneumatic Forklift
Pneumatic forklifts are common in warehouse and shipping operations. Also referred to as pump trucks or pallet trucks, they are utilized to transport things and supplies around on wooden pallets utilizing metal forks which are mounted on a wheeled counterweight. The counterweight includes a pump that lifts the forks off the ground. A pallet truck is designed to be operated by a single person.

To be able to prevent loosing control while lifting heavy loads, pallet trucks should always be operated with care. Equipment should be inspected before operating. Clear the wheels area of any obstructions. Check that the handle turns smoothly. The pallet must be stacked carefully to guarantee that nothing would fall off during transportation.

On the end of the pallet truck's handle, squeeze the level found on the inside of the metal loop to be able to release the air in the pump and lower the forks. The forks can then be pushed into the slots of the pallet. The forks should be in the middle to be able to guarantee equal distribution of the pallet's weight across them. Lift the forks from the ground by pumping the handle of the pneumatic lift until the pallet has completely cleared the ground. Do not raise the pallet too high or the forklift can unbalance.

Pull on the handle and drag it behind you if you want to move the pallet. It is not safe to push the pallet in front of you as the thrust could cause it to lose control. Take turns slowly and don't attempt to stop abruptly. Gradually stop, squeeze the lever, and the forks would lower to the ground. Finally, remove the forks from the pallet by pulling them out. Return the pallet truck to its permanent place.
