The primary function of a forklift is to lift heavy loads efficiently. To achieve this, it is equipped with a set of forks that uses hydraulic systems, moving the loads up, down, sideways, back and forth. Due to its heavy-duty functions, the forklift is equipped with a mast as a vertical stabilizer. This mast is equipped with rollers that hold the fork at a level while a Forklift Mast Chain reinforces its structure. This chain may also be called balance or leaf chain because of its function.
A forklift mast chain is a simple structure, including a link plate and a pin. The number of chains in the lift truck is determined by the number of links and pitch lacings. These parts are packed and maintained with grease to keep corrosion from getting them rusty or damaged. The chain is designed to have very high tensile strength on a per section area basis, allowing it to withstand the stress and different extreme conditions. It needs consistent maintenance such as being oiled and greased to ensure the longevity of its service life.
Maintaining the forklift mast chainhelps it last long and function smoothly. But, over long time of use, it wears out. When this happens, a replacement should be purchased and installed. Doing so at the first sign of damage can prevent the forklift downtimes that may occur, ensure safety, and ensure the smoothness of the forklift functions. The two choices of replacements are as follows: the original equipment (OE) or an aftermarket product, where the latter is more inexpensive.
