A forklift mast is a vertical structure that is attached to the front of a forklift. It is used to support the load that is being lifted by the forklift, and it typically has several stages of telescoping sections that can be raised and lowered to adjust the height of the load. The mast is typically made of metal and is designed to be strong and durable, able to withstand the weight of heavy loads. It is an essential component of a forklift, as it allows the 4x4 forklift to lift and move heavy objects.
Rough Terrain Forklift Masts are typically made of steel, as steel is a strong and durable material that can withstand the weight and forces involved in lifting heavy loads. Specialty steel may be used for the mast to enhance its strength and durability. For example, alloy steel, which is a type of steel that contains other elements such as chromium, manganese, or molybdenum, can be used to increase the strength and wear resistance of the steel. Other types of steel, such as high-strength low-alloy steel or quenched and tempered steel, may also be used in the construction of forklift masts.
U-steel, also known as channel steel or C-steel, is a type of steel with a cross-sectional shape that resembles the letter U. It is typically hot rolled, which means that it is formed into shape while the steel is in a heated state, and then allowed to cool to room temperature. Hot rolling allows the steel to be shaped more easily and with greater precision, and it also helps to improve the strength and ductility of the steel.
The mast U-steel of the Kaystar off-road forklift is made of Hot rolled U-steel produced by Shandong Laigang .
