 Caterpillar Forklift Hand Brake

Caterpillar Forklift Handbrakes are known as the secondary safety braking appliance which does the work of bypassing the primary hydraulic braking system if it fails anyhow. The alternate names for this are e-brakes, emergency brakes and parking brakes. It has four different types of levers like- stick lever, center lever, pedal lever and the electric push button in the console.     

Hand brakes can be applied for the scenarios like below:

  • When the forklift is parked
  • When forklift’s general operation is performed
  • At the time of going up or down a hill or slope


The brakes get loosen up when the hand brake lever is pulled up. In that case if the brake does not work properly, then the cable is needed to be adjusted. For avoiding unwanted circumstances, proper attention to the quality of the hand brake and its proper use should be given.         


Things to remember while using the hand brake:

  • Hand brakes must be used at all times as it is a safety feature.
  • The truck should completely stop before the operator can pull the brake handle. This is the right way to use a hand brake.
  • Operator of a truck may be in need of stopping the truck immediately when necessary. So, the hand brakes should be reliable enough.
