Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

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

A rough terrain lift truck is different form a regular lift truck in 2 main ways: they utilize thick treaded, inflatable tires to allow operators to drive them over loose or uneven terrain and they use internal combustion engines for their power source.

These pieces of machinery are very rugged and strong vehicles. Numerous models of rough terrain, heavy duty lift trucks are capable of lifting several tons of material at the same time. These machinery are carefully calibrated in order to provide a counterbalance at the back of the lift. This counterbalance is what stops the load from making the lift tip forward. Some rough terrain models provide 4-wheel steering and 4-wheel drive. Most rough terrain forklifts make use of a hydraulic system which is responsible for lowering and raising the forks.

Rough terrain forklifts are powered by IC engines. These engines provide more power compared to electric engines, and allow for greater acceleration and speed. There are a variety of different IC engines which run on different other kinds of fuels. For instance, amongst the most frequent types of fuels for these units include CNG or compressed natural gas, gasoline, diesel and LP or liquid propane. Diesel is the most common fuel choice and it is also the least expensive, although, it is not as commonly found as gas. Among the main benefits of the internal combustion or IC engines is that they really reduce refueling time.

The tire choice on a rough terrain forklift is an extremely important factor. With the right tires, rough terrain lift trucks are capable of riding over uneven ground due to the traction provided by the tires. There are some rough terrain lift trucks that enable people to drive these equipment over wood, ice, rocks, mud and snow, practically transforming them into an unstoppable equipment. Most of these tires are similar to conventional tires found on trucks and automobiles 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 machines enable operators to move thousands of tons of material over rough and hazardous ground.
