Toyota (SAS) System. Swing lock axle

swing lock axle Under normal conditions, the centre mounted rear axle of a forklift truck articulates via a single pivoting central mount. The swing lock cylinder shown here is connected from the chassis to the rear axle and upon receiving a signal from the controller, instantly locks the axle and prevents it from articulating. This has the effect of changing the truck's stability triangle into a rectangle.
