Nimble Forklift

23 comments
This is a Forklift model with gear-based virtual pivot steering and elevated forklift mast built with stud-less Technic pieces.

The core of this concept is the possibility of using Technic gears to build a virtual pivot steering mechanism for forklifts that enables tight angle steering with up to 90 degrees wheel turn.

The model additionally implements an elevated forklift mast which enables reaching high shelves in the warehouse when the mast is extended and driving underneath when the mast is retracted.


This model was made with leftover elements from other builds I've made at the time and it's just to present the ideas of tight angle steering and elevated mast in forklifts.

If you like this model, please take look at my other ideas, you will find more interesting builds there.
