Bidirectional Forklift
Bidirectional Forklift

Firstly, the cab may rotate to any angle within 180 degree, so as to avoid block effectively. Secondly, the truck may rotate to any angle too, to turn to a different direction with least turning radius. Thirdly, the counterweight moves with the barycenter of the truck and lifted goods, in order to keep the truck stable. At last, the length of metal bars can be changed according to the size of goods, increasing safety. Summery, the cab of the new forklift truck may turn back and the truck can be driven in opposite direction after it is loaded with goods, avoiding sight block and promising safety.
