my new work vehicle
model MD 30
type side lift
power 24 volt
max speed 8kmh
4 wheel steering
ok so by now your thinking WTF,
it's a forklift we just had delivered and my new toy at work.
i took some photos and will explain what everything does under each one
so here we go
this is what it looks like
this is how you get in and out seat is on a pivot with locking device and pressure sensor so if your not on the seat and its not locked in place all power is disconnected to wheels and lifting mechanism.
accelerator and brake pedals recessed into floor
rearview mirror and camera monitor 2 cameras atm 3rd coming
as when you have a long load you cant see the end of it while driving forward
this is the joystick that controls the tines and mast and wheel direction
the buttons are horn/tines close/tines open/two arrows not used/T traction control/the button in the centre is your direction switch as well as the buttons on the dash monitor in next photo.
normal steering mode when wheels turn so do these on monitor
crab walk good for reversing away from racking and other things
360 mode for turning on the spot
also has left and right motion but i forgot to take a photo of that
this is the steering wheel tiny little thing but very touchy
battery pack 24 volt all the tubing is to fill with fluid if a cell gets low just hook up the hose to the bottle of distilled water and auto fill takes over when the gauge stops spinning remove hose batteries are full simple really
all the caps with the white dots are the water level gauges if a cell is low the dot drops down and you know you need water.
if your wondering where the key is there isn't one it works on security code you need to punch into it before you drive it every driver has their own code
so far has only done 8 hours since new so still getting used to it but is great fun to drive.
