Industrial Truck - Masts Product Image
Masts in many trucks are made from STEEL OF WEST VIRGINIA special channels in combination with special I-beams, J-bars or offset J-bars. Close tolerances and straightness are achieved with these special sections, thus allowing the equipment to function effectively in a fully-loaded and extended condition.

Original lift truck designs used standard materials and proved inadequate in achieving the combined requirements of strength, close tolerance, straightness and economy. Today our special sections are able to meet these customer-specific requirements. Special chemistry, web and flange thickness, weldability, surface hardness and impact resistance are carefully incorporated into the recommended design.

The use of special mast sections significantly reduces manufacturing costs by reducing material weight and in-plant operations. Thus, the custom-designed shapes with close-fitting tolerances result in both an improved product and process for the manufacturer.
