This means more efficient and streamlined unloading, which is just one of the factors of growing your bottom line and your operation as a whole.

Lonestar Forklift is proud to be a certified Navigator Forklift dealer. Since 1987, Chrisman Manufacturing, Inc. has been a leading forklift manufacturer in the United States.

A Guide to Rig-Out Installation for Navigator Forklifts

Forklifts make quick work of heavy lifting jobs, but they aren’t like any other pieces of equipment or machinery that you can load into the back of a work truck. Fortunately, there’s a reliable, user-friendly, and practical solution for individuals and companies with mobile forklift needs: Truck-mounted Navigator forklifts. Unlike other types of forklifts in Dallas, truck-mounted lift trucks require the installation of a special rig-out assembly. Here are some quick tips and pointers for rig-out installation for Navigator forklifts.

Research Load Limits and Capabilities

The first thing you must do before installing the rig-out assembly is to check with the manufacturer of your truck and/or trailer for information on load limits and capabilities. The installation guide provided by Navigator is not specific to any type of truck and/or trailer, so you must research on your own to make sure your equipment can handle a truck-mounted forklift.

Get Manufacturer Approval

After you confirm the load limits and capabilities of your truck and/or trailer, you will need to fill out the appropriate rig-out mounting application and fax it to Navigator for approval. You will need to provide specific vehicle dimensions on your application such as the centerline of the rear axle to the end of bed, distance from the bottom of the bed to ground, front and rear axle weight, and front and rear axle capacity.

Hire a Professional Welder

All rig-out assembly welds should be completed by a AWS D1.1 certified welder. If you do not have a professional welder on staff who meets these requirements, you will need to hire an outside welder to complete the installation. The strength of the rig-out assembly depends on the quality of these welds, so don’t cut any corners or take any shortcuts.

The History of LuiGong

LuiGong is known for building world-class machines that can tackle any job, anytime, anywhere. However, LuiGong was not always the globally-respected, multinational corporation it is today. The company was founded in 1958, and its first machine was an 80 horsepower bulldozer. In 1966, LuiGong manufactured China’s first modernized wheel loader, the Z435. LuiGong continued to grow through the second half of the 20 th century, but the company’s biggest growth came between 2000 and 2009. Watch this video to learn more about the history of LuiGong.
