Reasons Why Moffett Forklifts are Safer than Others?

Reasons Why Moffett Forklifts are Safer than Others?

REASONS WHY MOFFETT FORKLIFTS ARE SAFER THAN OTHERS?

As a forklift driver, you know the importance of operating a forklift that prioritizes safety above all else. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimates that thousands of serious and non-serious injuries are caused to forklift drivers every year. A considerable number of these are because of poor safety features. However, the same cannot be said for all of these machines because Moffett forklift parts and safety features have proved better than others. They have revolutionized the way on-site operations and safety hazards are handled and addressed. This blog will discuss why these machines are safer than their counterparts. So please, read till the end.  

Factors that Make Moffett Forklifts Safe

Safety isn’t just about making a vehicle with better quality material and incorporating many safety features. There are other factors as well, like the design. The four essential things that make these machines safer than others are discussed in detail below. 

Design 

Moffett’s or a flatbed truck with a forklift is one of the ideal pieces of equipment to handle heavy industrial material at any type of workplace. They are small, sturdy, robust, and can be maneuvered with confidence through narrow spaces. Their design gives them a lower center of gravity. The hydraulic stabilizers offer these forklifts the leverage to lift loads and maintain a combined center of gravity. It helps to keep the load in the triangle of stability. That is why these forklifts are safe and extremely popular among the many thriving industries of North America. 

Top-notch Safety Features

As already mentioned, the safety features of Moffett forklifts are better than their counterparts. They include:

  • Interlocking seat belt for the driver.

  • Overhead guard, tested by Rollover Protective Structure (ROPS) and Falling Object Protective Structure (FOPS).

  • Maximum visibility all around the forklift, i.e., a 360 degrees view. 

  • Flashing beacon, work lights, and reverse beeper

  • LED road light while being transported on a flatbed truck.

Stability on Rough Terrain

These forklifts provide superior stability over rough terrains such as mud, rocks, gravel, and uneven surfaces. That is especially impressive since most forklifts can’t keep stable when operated on a rough surface outside the warehouse. The conventional forklifts tend to tip over when their center of gravity changes while carrying a load over uneven surfaces. That happens because the weight of the forklift and the load combine to become heavier than the counterbalance. Meanwhile, the Moffett forklift parts like the horizontally moving mast ensure that the center of gravity remains low to prevent the vehicle from tipping over.

 

These are three of the essential features of these reliable industrial machines that you can use on any terrain. If you seek to purchase this equipment from a trustworthy and reliable vendor, we suggest you contact Bobby Park Truck & Equipment to get your desired machines. 

We have created a list of some common questions customers ask and have provided their answers as well. Please read them below to get some additional information.
