MATTERS NEEDING ATTENTION IN SELECTING FORKLIFT FOR RACKS
A. Forklift tonnage configuration. Mainly have: 1.5T, 1.8T, 2T, 2.5T, 3T; choose that kind of purchase configuration needs to see the weight of goods, and the highest fork height. As the height increases, the maximum safety of forklift truck decreases. For example, a 2T battery forklift truck 5 meters high can fork up to 2T when working at low position, but when fork up to 5 meters high, its safe weight may be only 800KG, or up to 1000KG. Exceeding this weight may be dangerous due to overload. It is important to know and understand.
B. Forklift drive. There are mainly battery forklift trucks, but also diesel forklift trucks; because of the indoor and outdoor operations, so consider the two configuration proportions. In contrast, battery forklifts are much less powerful than diesel forklifts. However, the battery forklift truck has the advantages of environmental protection, less noise, small turning radius and low operation cost. Diesel forklift has the advantages of high power, fast speed and high efficiency.
C. Lift height of fork lift truck. Considering the need of elevated operation in the warehouse and the height of the warehouse, the lifting height of the forklift truck should be taken into consideration from the standard configuration of 3.5 meters, 4.5 meters, 5.5 meters and 6 meters, and several collocations should be considered separately according to the low-level operation and the high-level operation to reduce the total procurement cost.
D. Forklift height. Considering that forklift trucks have to work inside containers, the height of forklift gantry should be considered. It requires at least two gantry frames under 2.3 meters of net height in containers. However, the lifting height of forklift trucks will conflict with the height of gantry frames, and the lifting height is too high. Whether it is three gantry frames or two gantry frames, the height of the gantry frames is 2. 4 meters, so the two cannot be concurrently.
E. Considering the accuracy and flexibility of forklift operation, we need to configure the side shifter.
F. The number of forklift tires. Considering the width of forklift operation passage, in the case of high-cost forward forklift trucks cannot be purchased, but also consider the choice of three or four wheels, three-wheel turning radius is much smaller;
G. The elastic configuration of G and forklift truck. Considering that there may be cylindrical warehouse, large cotton bags and other goods need to be operated, that is, to increase the holder and other accessories, but also to consider whether to reserve hydraulic pipeline when the forklift truck leaves the factory;
H. Forklift tires. The problem of pneumatic tire and solid tire should be considered. The standard configuration of forklift trucks is usually air tyres, but easy to burst, and not wear-resistant, increase maintenance costs, so the budget permits, can consider the use of solid tyres forklift trucks;
I. Diesel forklift engine, to consider whether the imported engine or domestic engine, which is the core of forklift performance, and there are many brands to choose, need to seriously compare and analyze;
J. Subsequent maintenance cost. Battery forklift trucks also need to consider the choice of DC motor or AC motor, the AC inside also need to distinguish between full AC and partial AC, because this involves a follow-up maintenance cost issues;
