How to Maintain Your Forklift Accessories and Parts
A forklift’s accessories, parts, and components are in a constant state of motion. This motion creates a “wear and tear” effect on forklifts which hinders peak performance. Some of the parts that can be effected include batteries, attachments, chargers, and clamps. Companies know that a truck with increased downtime is a detriment to not only their productivity but their company as a whole. Proper maintenance is the proper way to deal with these effects of wear and tear.
BENEFITS OF REGULAR MAINTENANCE ON FORKLIFTS CAN LEAD TO:
- Maintaining a higher resale value.
- Improving performance for the truck’s components, accessories, and attachments.
- Cost reductions by finding smaller problems which could potentially lead to bigger problems in the future.
- A safer working environment for the truck operators and for the entire facility as a whole.
- More up-time for the truck, which reduces the cost over time.
NEGLIGENCE OF PROPER MAINTENANCE ON FORKLIFTS CAN LEAD TO:
- More expense in the long run due to components, accessories, and attachments needing to be replaced at a more frequent rate.
- An unsafe work environment.
- Increased downtime the truck will have to operate, reducing its longevity.
- Reduced performance for the truck.
- Decreased productivity.
- Forklifts running poorly.
- Increased emissions.
