1 FORKLIFT STABILITY MATERIAL HANDING AND ROBOTICS I. Practical course Dávid HURI office door number: 324/6

2 What is a powered industrial truck (P.I.T.)? Definition: A powered vehicle used to carry, push, pull, lift, stack or tier materials. Another way of describing powered industrial trucks is that they include standard forklifts and special use forklifts and industrial vehicles. They are all regulated by the DOSH P.I.T. regulations WAC The Industrial Truck Association list seven classes of PITs

3 Class 1 Electric Truck Has the following: 1. Electric motor 2. A counter-weight in the rear 3. Solid or pneumatic (air filled) tires 4. Operator sits and drives. The "mast is the telescoping track on which the forks and load are raised and lowered. Solid tires for smooth surfaces. Pneumatic tires are used for rougher surfaces. Forks on a forklift. Some trucks have a solid platform and are called "platform trucks". Counter-weight and battery.

4 Class 2 Electric Truck Characteristics: 1. Electric motor 2. Narrow construction to fit in aisles 3. Solid tires On some models, forks reach in and out as well as up, down and tilt. Other models have the forks on the side (called "Side Loaders ) or allow the forks to pivot to the side (called "Front/Side Loaders ). The operator stands on a platform which moves up and down. Sometimes called an order picker Straddle legs add stability for forklifts that don't use a counter-weight

5 Class 3 Hand Truck Electric Motor Hand or Hand/Rider Trucks Characteristics: 1. Motorized 2. Walk behind or ride 3. Low or high lift 4. Counter-weight or straddle This motorized pallet jack has a counter-weight. Straddle legs are provided on more compact or reach models. The operator can walk behind or stand on the platform and hold onto the grab bar.

6 Class 4 Truck Characteristics: 1. Propane internal combustion engine 2. Solid tires 3. One of the most common types Propane/liquid petroleum gas (LPG) fuel cylinder. Other forklifts run on diesel or gasoline. Propane Solid Tire Forklift

7 Class 5 Truck Characteristics: 1. Gasoline, diesel or propane engines 2. Pneumatic tires 3. Used outdoors in many cases. Pneumatic (air filled) tires with tread are used for traction and stability on rough or wet surfaces.

8 Class 6 Industrial Tractor Truck Characteristics: 1. Electric or internal combustion engine 2. Solid or pneumatic tires 3. Specialty vehicles 4. Pull or carry loads (no forks) created by Dávid Huri Industrial Tractor Wikimedia Commons Straddle carrier Yard Tractor

9 Class 7 Rough Terrain Truck Characteristics: created by Dávid Huri 1. Used outdoors in uneven or muddy locations 2. Pneumatic tires 3. Gasoline or diesel-powered Log Yard Forklift Rough Terrain Reach Forklift Boom both lifts and extends to place the load at an elevated location. Usually found on construction sites. Rough Terrain Mast Forklift

11 COMPONENTS OF A FORKLIFT TRUCK

12 Forklift Operating Manual Since there are numerous makes, models and types of forklifts, it is important to check for warnings in the specific forklift operator s manual. The manual should be kept on the forklift at all times. OSHA

13 Forklift Nameplate The nameplate will list the type of forklift and the capacity Type Weight Load capacity OSHA This forklift is a propane (LP) powered forklift, weighing 3800kg with a lifting capacity of up to 2200 kg.

14 Forklift Load Capacity Chart created by Dávid Huri

15 Injury tipes created by Dávid Huri

16 Stability of Lift Trucks Tipovers occur from: Overloading Load too high Mast tilted beyond vertical Sharp turns Braking abruptly Pot holes Overhead obstructions Wet, uneven surfaces Ramps Low tire pressure & Excessive speed

17 STABILITY TRIANGLE Center of Steering Axle Drive Tire B Vehicle Center of Gravity (Unloaded) A Notes: Drive Tire C Center of Gravity of Vehicle and Maximum Load (Theoretical) 1. When the vehicle is loaded, the combined center of gravity (CG) shifts toward line B-C. Theoretically the maximum load will result in the CG at the line B-C. In actual practice, the combined CG should never be at line B-C. 2. The addition of additional counterweight will cause the truck CG to shift toward point A and result in a truck that is less stable laterally.

18 STABILITY TRIANGLE Load CG Vertical Stability Line (Line of Action) Combined CG Truck CG Truck CG Load CG Combined CG Vertical Stability Line (Line of Action) The vehicle is stable This vehicle is unstable and will continue to tip over

19 How loads affect forklifts OSHA A forklift balances a load with a counterweight at the back. The front wheels act as a fulcrum or balance point. The center of gravity moves upward when the forks are raised.

20 Center of Gravity Will Shift STATIC FORCES are affected by: a) load characteristics b) lift height c) amount of tilt d) tire condition DYNAMIC FORCES are affected by: a) acceleration b) travel speeds c) braking d) surface condition Counterbalance load is carried at front of vehicle and is offset or counterbalanced by the weight of the vehicle located behind the drive tires which act as a pivot point internal combustion-engine, steer axle, transmission, counterweight, and frame electric powered battery, control panel, motors and pumps, steer axle, counterweight, and frame 20

21 Don t travel with a raised load created by Dávid Huri

22 Forklift Load Capacity created by Dávid Huri OSHA While carrying a load near the maximum allowable capacity, be aware of the following: Danger of tipover Danger of losing load Danger of being struck by falling load

23 Moving the load created by Dávid Huri Use extra caution when handling loads that approach the truck's maximum rated capacity: Tilt the mast & forks back and position the heaviest part of the load against the carriage. Travel with the mast tilted back to keep the load stable. Never travel with the load tilted forward. Tilting the load forward increases the load distance and makes the load less stable

24 Stacking loads on pallets Loose loads are subject to falling. Off center loads can also be subject to falling or cause the forklift to tip over. The photos below show the correct way to load pallets. Avoid using damaged pallets.

25 Forklift Work Platforms Never lift other workers on forks unless you use an approved work platform with railings as shown. Dangerous!! Safe

26 Order Picker Fall Protection In warehouses order picker forklifts, the vehicle must have either: Standard guardrails on all open sides or A safety harness and lanyard

27 Why a safety harness is needed on an order picker forklift While working in a warehouse using an order picking forklift, a worker tried to stand on a shelf to adjust the position of the load on the pallet. His foot slipped from the rack and he fell from the fourth tier to the floor. A safety harness would have stopped his fall.
