 Caterpillar Forklift Differential

Caterpillar Forklift differential is the torque transmitting medium to wheel. It is more similar to simple gear chain. The internal combustion engine rotates at very high revolution per minute. So it is required to reduce the speed of rotation in the wheel. The differential is the machine which exactly does this job.


Forklift differential plays three vital roles:


  • It transmits the engine power to the wheel.
  • It works as a final gear reducer of the forklift.  
  • Persuasively slow down the rotational speed when it reaches the wheel.


The differential is a device which can divide the engine torque into two parts, so that both wheels can rotate at different speeds. Normal car or similar automobile uses a single differential operating system, where heavy-duty truck uses two differentials. That’s why it is called a four-wheeled vehicle then.


There are a couple of types of differential assemble. Different types are adopted by the type of vehicle whether it is truck or car. The most popular and simplest type is named as open type differential. This transmits the same amount of torque on each wheel. But in time, there is an improvement to the open differentials which is called limited slip differential. Clutch-type LSD has some similarity as Open type differential, but it has some extra features. Torsen differential is the latest type of differential, which can lock up if a torque imbalance occurs.
