The prime function of the caterpillar forklift is to lift heavy loads proficiently. It is packed with forks which use hydraulic power to move the loads up, down, back, forth and sideways. Because of its heavy duty operations, it is fitted with a mast to work as a vertical stabilizer. The mast consists of rollers which keep the fork steady at a level. Meanwhile, a Caterpillar Forklift Mast Chain is used to strengthen the structure. This chain can also be referred as leaf or balance chain due to its function.
A forklift mast chain consists of a simple structure. It has a link plate and a pin. These components are maintained with grease to keep away the corrosion from making them damaged or rusty. The chain has high tensile strength on a psa, so that it can tolerate different extreme conditions. It requires continuous maintenance like being greased and oiled to make sure the service life is long.
Maintenance of the forklift mast chain aids it to function smoothly and last long. But, over the course of its usage time, it gradually wears down. If this occurs, a replacement should be bought and installed. Taking this measure in the initial stage of the damage may prevent the possibility of forklift malfunctions, ensuring safety, and the ease of the forklift operations.
