Raw Materials
The telescoping boom rough terrain forklift's cab, body, boom and frame are generally produced by a forklift maker. Steel is the most popular materials utilized to make these because they have tremendous strength. At times aluminum or steel forgings are utilized too. It is common for non-metallic materials like for example nylon plastic blocks to be used as guides within the boom assembly. The other parts are normally purchased as finished products and the forklift manufacturer installs them.

Pre-assembled bought products can include several of the following: transmission, seat, axles, engine, wheels, hoses and tires, lights, back-up alarms, hydraulic cylinders and gauges. Most often, certain materials like for instance the hydraulic fluid and fuel and lubricants are bought in bulk. These liquids are added as needed once the machinery is assembled and has passed the rigorous testing sessions.

Design
The narrow and long design of the telescoping boom rough terrain forklift is most common, with a set of wheels at the front of the unit and another set located towards the rear of the machine. The boom portion of the model is mounted at the forklift's rear off of a pivot feature which is elevated several feet above the frame's level. Normally, the cab is mounted on the frame structure's left-hand side. Normally, the cab's bottom half is low and located between the tires. The hydraulic fuel tank and the fuel tank are mounted on the right-hand side, opposite the cab. Along the vehicle's center-line, the engine and the transmission are mounted in the frame.

Beyond this basic configuration, various manufacturers have contributed to their own unique design. On the market now, there are numerous options offered. Certain units of forklifts make use of a single hydraulic cylinder to be able to elevate the boom, and other units utilize 2 cylinders. Several units make use of a side-to-side hydraulic frame leveling capability. This feature enables the frame to tilt up to 10 degrees relative to the axles so as to allow the machinery to compensate for extreme axle articulation. This is used for example, when the tires on one side of the forklift are located down in a rut and the tires on the other side of the equipment are up, located on a mound of dirt.

Another popular design feature comprises fork attachments that are capable of swinging up to 45 degrees both right and left, in order to allow accurate load positioning.
