Forklift Parts FAQ

  • What are the parts of a forklift called?

    A forklift consists of several essential parts, each serving a specific function. Here are some of the main parts of a forklift:

    1. Forks: These are the two arms that extend from the front of the forklift and slide under the pallet or load for lifting.
    2. Mast: The vertical assembly on the front of the forklift raises and lowers the load. It consists of interlocking rails or channels.
    3. Lift Cylinder: The hydraulic cylinder responsible for raising and lowering the mast.
    4. Carriage: The component to which the forks are attached. It moves up and down the mast and provides support for the load.
    5. Load Backrest: A vertical metal plate attached to the carriage prevents the load from shifting backwards toward the operator.
    6. Counterweight: Located at the rear of the forklift, it helps balance the weight of the load being lifted.
    7. Overhead Guard: A protective structure over the operator's compartment to shield them from falling objects.
    8. Tires: Forklifts typically have either cushion tires (ideal for indoor use on smooth surfaces) or pneumatic tires (better for outdoor use on rough terrain).
    9. Operator Compartment: The area where the driver operates the forklift. It includes the seat, controls, steering wheel, and other instruments.
    10. Steering Wheel: Used to control the direction of the forklift.
    11. Dashboard/Control Panel: Displays vital information about the forklift's status, such as fuel level, battery charge, and operational indicators.
    12. Brake Pedal and Accelerator: Control the speed and stopping of the forklift.
    13. Transmission: Typically automatic, it controls the forklift's movement and speed.
    14. Engine/Power Source: Forklifts can be powered by internal combustion engines (gasoline, diesel, or propane) or electric batteries.
    15. Hydraulic Pump: Powers the hydraulic system, which is essential for lifting and tilting operations.
    16. Tilt Cylinder: Allows the forks to tilt forward or backwards to accommodate the load.
    17. Stabiliser Legs (Optional): Extend from the sides of the forklift to provide extra stability when lifting heavy loads.

    Understanding these components is crucial when shopping for replacement parts.
