 Caterpillar Forklift Engine

With the difference of combustion procedure, engines are categorized as internal combustion engine and external combustion engine. Forklift engines are one sort of internal combustion engine. Here chemical energy is converted into mechanical energy to mobilize heavy-duty vehicle.   

These are four stages to complete one cycle of forklift engine-

  • Air and fuel mixture enters into the combustion chamber of the cylinder by inlet valve, where the piston tends to move down and the pressure is reduced.
  • The piston starts moving up, squeezing the air-fuel mixture into a smaller volume. It increases the temperature of the air-fuel mixture and make ignition easier.
  • Ignition occurs at this stage and the piston moves downward. Massive power produces in this period.
  • In last stage the piston moves from bottom to top center. This allows the exhaust valve to open, and the piston pushes out the leftover gases.

So, the power is produced. It is now to be translated to the wheel of the vehicle. A connected crankshaft with piston does the job rest.


Two most important parts of the engine are cylinder and spark plug.

Cylinder is called as the core of the engine. For heavy-duty vehicle, more than one cylinder is required. To get maximum power the cylinders are arranged in an efficient way, such as flat type, V type or inline assemble. 


 Spark plug plays another important role in IC engine as it provides a necessary spark to cause ignition. A good spark plug is essential for perfect combustion. Late ignition and early ignition may occur if the spark plug is choked.
