A fork lift truck with accessory equipment is used to transport the casting ladles in the foundry of an engine factory. In the past, the bearing of the connecting rod for horizontal adjustment was equipped with gunmetal bushes. At that time, the service life of this bearing amounted to only a few weeks.
