Forklift or a lift truck as it is sometimes called is a machine that is capable of lifting heavy objects and transporting them to different locations. There are several important characteristics that each forklift possesses. First of all, most of the forklift trucks (if not all) will use the rear wheel steering. That means the forklift uses rear wheels to make a turn. This gives the forklift operator more vehicle control (especially important when lifting something with the forks). You should be able to become comfortable with rear wheel steering during your forklift training. The operator of the forklift will be able to make turns in a very tight circle.

Another important characteristic is the fact that a forklift will usually weigh more than a regular car. Depending on a type of forklift it can even be heavier that a truck. This heavy weight is necessary to allow the forklift to lift heavy objects while providing the necessary stability and control. Also the weight is necessary to provide stability when the lifted objects are moved from one place to another. Another reason for the extra weight is the fact that forklift trucks often have a short width, many times fewer than 4 5 feet. The weight of the forklift will determine the maximum weight of the load it can lift.

Another thing to mention about forklift trucks is that they are very powerful? You should be very careful when you are driving the forklift or lifting some object. There are many different forklift types produced by many manufacturers like Toyota, Mitsubishi and Clark. Each of these forklift trucks will have its own specific benefits. For example, many Toyota forklift trucks offer the Active Control Rear Stabilizer for extra side stability and System of Active Stability for electronically monitoring of forklift functioning and operations. Other electronic equipment is usually installed on different forklift models.
