Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Caterpillar Pneumatic Tire Forklifts

Utilize a Pneumatic Forklift
Pneumatic forklifts are common in warehouse and shipping operations. Also known as pallet trucks or pump trucks, they are used in order to move products and supplies around on wooden pallets using metal forks mounted on a wheeled counterweight. The counterweight contains a pump that raises the forks off the ground. A pallet truck is intended to be operated by one individual.

To prevent loosing control while lifting heavy loads, pallet trucks must always be operated carefully. Equipment must be checked before operating. Clear the wheels area of any obstructions. Check that the handle smoothly turns. The pallet should be carefully stacked to guarantee that nothing would fall off during transportation.

To be able to release air in the pump and lower the forks, squeeze the lever located on the inside of the metal loop on the end of the pallet truck's handle. The forks could then be pushed into the slots of the pallet. The forks must be in the middle to ensure even distribution of the pallet's weight across them. Raise the forks from the ground by pumping the pneumatic lift's handle until the pallet has completely cleared the ground. Do not lift the pallet very high or the forklift could unbalance.

Pull on the handle and then drag it behind you if you want to move the pallet. It is dangerous to push the pallet in front of you because the thrust can cause it to lose control. Take turns slowly and don't attempt to stop suddenly. Gradually stop, squeeze the lever, and the forks will lower to the ground. Finally, remove the forks from the pallet by pulling them out. Return the pallet truck to its permanent location.
