Description: In Korea, the main work of tractor is limited use farm work such as tillage, suspension, transportation, etc. In order to expand the use of tractor, it is necessary to develop a tractor attaching type working machine capable of various farm work.
Therefore, this study carried out to develop the tractor-attached forklift for use as transport and load of post-harvest heavy agricultural products such as cabbage, radish, potato, sweet potato, etc. in field.
Forklift was designed to operated hydraulic on the basis of 40 kW class tractor. The Dimension is 1,123 * 882 * 1,376 mm(L*W*H) and weighs 450 kg. Forklift is mounted 3-pont hitch ahead of tractor, and permissible loadage is 800 kg. The result of loading test of the front and rear wheels by each loading weight, when the loading weight was 800 kg, is measured the rear loading 20 kg. The maximum load weight should be decided less than 800 kg for safety work.
In order to investigate safety of forklift, overturning angle of each load weight was measured. The results of overturning angle test tended to decrease gradually when load was increased. A permissible overturning angle is 7
