Summary

The power steering cylinder is a very important part of the steering system on many Clark forklift models. These devices make it easy to move the vehicle, even in tight spaces. They are highly resistant hydraulic cylinders, so they can withstand a lot of pressure. But that doesn't mean they are indestructible. Like any other forklift element, they need to receive proper maintenance to extend their lifespan. When a Clark forklift power steering cylinder doesn't work as it should, it makes it hard to turn the vehicle. That is why if they can no longer perform their job, the best thing to do is replace them as soon as possible.

The Main Function of a Clark Forklift Power Steering

Clark forklift models that work with a hydraulic power steering system have a main hydraulic cylinder connected to the steering wheels on the rear of the forklift. When the driver turns the steering wheel in a certain direction, the internal rod of the cylinder moves in such a way that it turns the wheels with it. Because it works by a hydraulic system and not by a mechanical one, the driver's effort when turning the steering wheel is minimal, which considerably facilitates the vehicle's maneuverability.

How Does a Clark Forklift Power Steering Cylinder Works?

Clark forklift power steering cylinders are hydraulic cylinders that turn the vehicle's steering wheels in the desired direction and angle when the driver turns the steering wheel. Like all hydraulic cylinders, they work by Pascal's principle, which states that a change in pressure at any point in a fluid is transmitted through the fluid so that the same change occurs everywhere.

A power steering cylinder has two chambers filled with hydraulic fluid separated by a piston. When the hydraulic pressure in one chamber increases, it will push the piston in the opposite direction. When the piston moves, so do the internal rods connected to it. The end of the rod is connected to the mechanism in which the forklift wheels pivot.

To grasp this process, it is highly recommended to check out the following video:

Find the Steering Cylinder in Your Clark Forklift

Clark forklift power steering cylinders are located on the rear side of many Clark lift trucks. It is fixed to the steering axle of the vehicle. At the ends of the steering cylinder barrel, it will attach the hydraulic hoses from which the hydraulic steering fluid will go in and out through the inner chambers. The ends of the cylinder rods are connected to the steering linkage.

The fact of having the steering system on the rear side makes the forklift maneuverability much greater, especially in sharp spaces. This configuration allows the driver to make tighter turns, especially when the vehicle is moving backward.
