Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Eagle Picher Rough Terrain Forklifts

Rough terrain lift trucks are ideal for many outdoor loading and construction needs. Usually, rough terrain forklift units are used to lift items like lumber, steel beams, bricks, concrete and various other heavy items.

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

These pieces of machines are really rugged and strong vehicles. A lot of units of rough terrain, heavy duty lift trucks are capable of lifting several tons of material at the same time. These kinds of equipment are carefully calibrated in order to offer a counterbalance at the rear of the lift. This counterbalance is what stops the load from making the lift tip forward. Some rough terrain units offer 4-wheel drive and 4-wheel steering. The majority of rough terrain lift trucks utilize a hydraulic system which is responsible for lowering and raising the forks.

The rough terrain model is almost exclusively powered by an IC engine. These engines offer more power, superior acceleration and greater speeds over the electric engine. There are a range of different IC engines which run on other kinds of fuels. For instance, some of the most frequent types of fuels for these models include gasoline, compressed natural gas or CNG, diesel and LP or liquid propane. Diesel is the most frequent fuel choice and it is also the cheapest, however, it is not as frequently found as gas. One of the key benefits of the internal combustion or IC engines is that they really decrease refueling time.

One more extremely important factor on the rough terrain forklift is the choice in tire. Rough terrains need to have tires which allow for movement across uneven terrain. There are some rough terrain lift trucks which enable people to drive these machinery over ice, rocks, wood, mud and snow, virtually transforming them into an unstoppable equipment. The majority of these tires are similar to typical tires found on cars and trucks and are filled with air, however, some units are made out of solid rubber.

A rough terrain lift truck is a great addition to any construction site. These machines enable operators to transport thousands of tons of material over hazardous and uneven ground.
