Pallet Trucks
size.  Always  place  the  highest  and  strongest  cases at each end of the pallet and the smaller and more fragile  cases  in  the  center.  This  arrangement provides  a  stronger  surface  for  a  second  tier  of cases  on  a  pallet  and  also  makes  it  possible  to place  a  second  loaded  pallet  on  top  for  storage. Forklift Trucks A  forklift  truck  is  a  vehicle  designed  to  pick up,  carry,  and  stack  unit  loads  of  supplies  and equipment. Standard forklift trucks are available with lifting capacities of 2,000 to 20,000 pounds and lifting heights of 100 to 210 inches. They may be powered by gasoline or diesel engine or battery- electric  motor.  The  battery-electric  type  is normally  used  only  for  inside  operation  where carbon   monoxide   from   internal   combustion engines  would  be  a  safety  hazard.  Forklifts  are equipped with a telescopic mast that permits loads to be lifted beyond the height of the mast itself. These loads are counterbalanced by the weight of the truck with the front wheels acting as the center of   balance. Forklifts are excellent for handling palletized unit  loads,  and  they  can  be  used  for  loads assembled on skids or in boxes. The forks can be replaced  with  special  attachments  to  adapt  the forklift to handle special material such as drums, reels,  and  so  forth,  but  the  forklift  is  normally used  for  loading  and  unloading  palletized  loads on trailers, trucks, railroad cars, and warehouse platforms. The forklift illustrated in figure 4-5 is a solid rubber tire warehouse type powered by a gasoline  engine. There are so many different makes and models of forklift trucks that it is difficult to generalize on   their   controls.   Forklifts   have   controls   for reverse  and  forward,  are  front  wheel  drive,  and steering  is  performed  through  the  rear  wheels. There is also another set of controls for the fork. These controls usually consist of two levers; one to raise and lower the fork and one to tilt the mast (supporting frame). The mast is tilted forward to Figure  4-5.—Forklift  truck. 4-8
