5 Forklift Maintenance Tips
Forklift maintenance is vital for your forklift fleet management. Proper maintenance will help your business save money over the long run by having better running and lasting equipment.
Your forklifts are an important asset for your business, and properly maintaining them will help them hold their value.
Follow these main preventative maintenance tips:
1. Regular Preventative Maintenance and Inspections
Your forklift fleet must be on a regular preventative maintenance schedule to keep them operating at peak performance which will reduce your long-term maintenance costs.
Educating your forklift drivers on how to spot and act on any issues they spot no matter how small should be a priority.
2. Oil Change Every Three Months
Follow the manufacturer’s manual for your forklift for regular oil changes. Most recommend changing the oil every 3 months. You need to maintain a written schedule for your forklifts. Missed oil changes can cause sludge buildup on the engine and result in a decreased performance. Poor maintenance will cause more downtime and increased costs for your forklifts.
3. Regularly Clean and Lubricate Your Forklift
Your forklifts are doing a lot of heavy lifting every day. For them to work at optimal performance, you need to keep the forklifts clean of dirt, dust, and build-up. Along with cleaning, keeping all the forklift parts well-oiled and lubricated to work properly and
avoid damage or corrosion.
4. Battery Maintenance
Establishing a battery inspection timetable suitable for all users is difficult because battery usage and the quality of routine maintenance differ from one plant to the next.
If routine maintenance is followed and the batteries are cycled once a day, five days a week, an annual inspection should be sufficient to identify any problems. Contact Forklift Express for any questions and to make sure your routine maintenance schedule is adequate for your fleet and the conditions your forklifts operate under.
5. Tire Maintenance
Your tire pressure should be checked every month. Tires can be damaged or incur increased wear and tear if they are improperly inflated. Improperly inflated tires can reduce your forklift’s performance and increase fuel consumption.
