Doosan Gas Forklifts

The lift truck's turning radius is also known as the turning circle, which is vital information for the driver to have. It gives the operator the information of how much space is required to turn the lift truck around. Like for example, a tighter turning radius allows the equipment to function successfully in tight places and crowded areas, therefore enhancing the maneuverability of the forklift. Drivers who do not know this measurement can cause damage to the property or to the machine.

Make the necessary steering geometry alignment corrections prior to checking the turning radius. The test must start with an operator trainer assisting inside the cab where they can help to control the machine's functions. Another person on the ground utilizes a spray bottle or a hose to wet the outside and inside of the model's wheels. After that, drive the equipment in a whole circle with the wheels turned to the maximum angle. Repeat the procedure once and continue if necessary to wet the wheels.

Measure the watermarks left by the tires utilizing a tape measure when your measurement test has been completed. The watermark test starts from the midpoint of the tire mark to a similar point across the circle's diameter. For the outside turning diameter, measure the watermark left by the exterior tires from one side of the circle to the circle's opposite side. You could determine the inside turning radius by stretching the tape measure across the circle left by the interior tires. After that, divide these numbers in 2 in order to determine the turning radius. Be sure to note that the turning center is the midpoint of the circle's diameter.

In order to determine the wall-to-wall turning diameter, drop a plumb line from the extreme outside radial extension on the vehicle. After this is accomplished, the next step is to locate the point on the pavement directly underneath. This point to the turning center indicates the vehicle clearance radius. As a rule, wall-to-wall turning diameter is twice the clearance radius of the machine.
