 Caterpillar Forklift Transmission

A Caterpillar Forklift Transmission is a machine which transmits engine power to the wheel. Generally it is connected to the engine crankshaft by a flywheel. It allows the engine and wheel to rotate in a relative velocity with each other. Basically, internal combustion engine rotates in high revolution per minute. Transmitter adjusts the relative speed of the wheel.

The manual transmission system was used long time ago. The automatic transmission system is easy to operate and safe. Most of the modern vehicle uses automatic transmission system as it is reliable and user friendly.

Forklift transmission system has three basic parts:

  • Planetary gear set
  • Torque converter
  • Computer sensor


The planetary gear set is used to change gears, torque converter is used instead of the clutch and it keeps the engine running. Computer sensor is used to monitor engine load, forklift speed, pedal position, etc.

Manual Transmission System

Manual Transmission was standard before the invention of the modern transmission system. Many older heavy-duty forklift trucks can be found, which still uses manual transmission. This system was cheaper and lighter and it gives better feedback.

Automatic Transmission System

Automatic transmission system is very easy to use. However, it was very complex and expensive at the very beginning. But with the mechanical revolution, it became cheaper. The system is fuel efficient and it gives an instant response.
