What type of suspension in Forklift?

It is reality to put a suspension on a fork lift yet to what indicate. Why would any one need a machine that is intended to grab stuff, and need one that hang & inclined in light of the fact that it grabbed a substantial burden?

farm lift.

Most of the Farm home made forklifts start with an old 1 1/2 dually farm truck. Shorten the frame, turn the rear end upside down, mocify the seating and steering, We have a home made Farm forklift made by a guy that had a shop down the road. He started with a 57 chevy 1/2 ton, later 350, 350, and a one ton rear end, The original front suspension uses the stock springs and shocks, redesigned steering linkage and seat so I sit facing the lift and the rear end is turned upside down,mounted solid. The "factory" forklift with side shift mast is mounted on the Frame tight to the rear axle. It has a very short wheelbase, is scarry to drive on the road. most of the time I drive with my foot on the brake. The Toyota warehouse forklift has no suspension, but the rear steer "front" axle has a center pivot. The long reach construction lift we use for stacking Hay has 4 wheel steer or 2 wheel steer, hydralic cylinders for a "suspension" so I can level the load on sloping ground.
