 Caterpillar Forklift Brake Cables

The Caterpillar Forklift Brake Cable is an essential part of braking assembly which is used for transmitting the force of the brake paddle. When the brake paddle is being pressed, the linear force is then transmitted into a pulling force which sends its hydraulic pressure onto the brake lines to the cylinder. The wheel cylinder, then uses mechanical force to the brake shoe to press the brake drum to stop or slowing down the wheel. Failure of controlling the wheeler leads to an accident which may cause loss of lives and damage to material.


Disc brake and drum brake system are used in caterpillar forklift engine, where disc brake takes immediate action to stop the wheel and drum brake slows down progressively. But the fact is that, it is not safe to stop a heavy truck immediately rather slowing down its speed. That’s why drum brake is eventually used in a forklift truck. Other reasons for choice drum brake system are:

  • It is less expensive
  • It has ability to perform parking brake.


Nowadays mostly, the caterpillar forklift truck uses both braking systems; disc type in front wheel and drum type in the rear.


The better cable you use, the better feedback you will get. Obviously it is to be said that, after a certain time the cable should be replaced. Solid Lift Parts Inc. identifies the brake cables needed for your caterpillar forklift model. So, contact today to get yourself the right items, right away!
