Caterpillar Container Forklift

Caterpillar Container Forklift

A container forklift is specifically utilized to unload and load huge, heavy freight containers. They are used to transport freight off and on truck beds, trains and ships. Container forklifts are the most sturdy and biggest types of forklifts made. They need to be extremely maneuverable on terrain which is uneven and have enough power and torque to lift large containers safely. They typically have heavy-duty diesel engines and large pneumatic tires.

A container forklift, like all kinds of forklift, uses forks to be able to raise the containers. Forks need to be positioned to ensure the load is secure during transport. Several container forklift models are only designed to raise the containers several meters off the ground. Other container handlers use another method for carrying containers to greater heights. A container handler uses an apparatus affixed to the front of the vehicle to clamp down on either end of the container like jaws. The machinery is counterbalanced with weights to maintain stability.

The main purpose of a container forklift is to lift and transfer containers. Standard forklifts do not have sufficient reach for working in ports. The forks are rated according to the maximum weight they could handle. The capabilities of the forklift should be posted prominently in the cockpit and should never be exceeded.
