Drive Axles

The piece of equipment that is elastically fastened to the frame of the vehicle utilizing a lift mast is known as the lift truck drive axle. The lift mast affixes to the drive axle and could be inclined, by no less than one tilting cylinder, around the drive axle's axial centerline. Frontward bearing components combined with back bearing parts of a torque bearing system are responsible for fastening the vehicle and the drive axle framework. The drive axle can be pivoted around a swiveling axis oriented horizontally and transversely in the vicinity of the rear bearing components. The lift mast could also be inclined relative to the drive axle. The tilting cylinder is affixed to the vehicle frame and the lift mast in an articulated fashion. This enables the tilting cylinder to be oriented almost parallel to a plane extending from the axial centerline and to the swiveling axis.

Forklift models like for instance H40, H45 and H35 that are manufactured in Aschaffenburg, Germany by Linde AG, have the lift mast tilt capably affixedconnected on the vehicle frame. The drive axle is elastically affixed to the lift truck frame using a multitude of bearing tools. The drive axle contains a tubular axle body along with extension arms affixed to it and extend rearwards. This particular type of drive axle is elastically connected to the vehicle frame using rear bearing parts on the extension arms along with forward bearing devices located on the axle body. There are two back and two front bearing devices. Each one is separated in the transverse direction of the lift truck from the other bearing machine in its respective pair.

The drive and braking torques of the drive axle are maintained through the back bearing parts on the frame using the extension arms. The lift mast and the load produce the forces which are transmitted into the roadway or floor by the framework of the vehicle through the drive axle's anterior bearing parts. It is essential to be certain the components of the drive axle are configured in a firm enough method so as to maintain stability of the forklift truck. The bearing parts could minimize minor road surface irregularities or bumps throughout travel to a limited extent and offer a bit smoother operation.
