Doosan Big Forklifts

Size
On the rear of the lift truck is a counterbalance, which allows the lift truck to raise extremely heavy things. The counterbalance gives balance so that the machine will not tip over while carrying and transporting heavy cargo. Forklifts are rated based on their load capacity. A small forklift which could carry 1800 kilograms weighs approximately 4000 kilograms, which is the same as two full-size pickup trucks. The biggest forklifts could carry stuff as heavy as 36,000 kilograms.

Considerations
In utilizing a forklift, there are many safety issues. For example, travel in reverse while driving down a ramp. You should also haul a load in reverse if the cargo is bulky and interferes with vision. Operators must know how to safely mount the lift utilizing the "three-point stance." This includes putting the right hand on the back of the seat, while holding the upright of the safety cage with the left hand and placing the left foot on the step. Never jump out of a lift truck even during a tip over. It is a lot safer to stay inside the confines of the lift. Any slip or fall on a forklift can result in serious injuries.

Potential
In many businesses, the lift truck is considered an indispensable since they are required to rapidly raise and move goods, unload and load products safely and with little to no physical exertion. Pedestrian safety is a primary consideration when working in public spaces. Operators must always give pedestrians the right-of-way. A forklift must never be driven on uneven grounds or on a highway. The driver should have a seat belt tightly fastened all the time when driving.

Expert Insight
Forklifts will always be vital pieces of equipment for businesses as forklifts are an important tool in any culture which makes and consumes mass-produced products. OSHA supervises compliance standards for companies that use forklifts and provides licensing and certification protocols. The forklift Rodeo is an entertainment event for operators and other workers that includes an obstacle course and other interesting spectacles.
