Daily Maintenance of forklift.

Apr 13, 2023

Many businesses require forklifts for their daily operations. A forklift is a valuable piece of machinery for businesses that need it to transport materials as well as goods. Forklifts are widely used, and there are many different types. It is necessary to select the type of forklift in combination with specific operating conditions. Power type is an important factor to consider when choosing a forklift. Forklifts come in diesel forklift, gasoline forklift or electric forklift , and regardless of the fuel type, routine maintenance checks are required to ensure the safe and smooth operation of the vehicle on a daily basis.

Operators of any forklift need to be qualified to operate it. It's a legal requirement, like getting a driver's license. Forklift training is a key component, and one of the first things to be taught is the routine day-to-day inspections that must be done on the machine before use. This is the case with diesel, petrol or electric trucks, which should be checked for the following:

4 wheel electric forklift

Electric forklift:

1. Check the battery electrolyte level after charging the battery

2. Check the hydraulic oil level

3. Check that all wheel nuts are tight

4. Check the hose for leaks and damage

5. Visually inspect the tire for damage and inflation pressure

6. Top up the battery with distilled/deionized water

Also, make sure the battery is charged after each shift and avoid random charging.

Diesel/Natural Gas Forklifts

Diesel/Natural Gas Forklifts:

1. Check radiator water level

2. Check the oil level

3. Check that all wheel nuts are tight

4. Check the fuel level

5. Visually inspect the water reservoir

6. Check the hose for leaks and damage

7. Visually inspect the tire for damage and inflation pressure

Ensuring that the above inspections are performed will not only extend the life of your forklift and keep it safe, but will also reduce any costs incurred. Any neglect or misuse of a forklift can result in damage and thus unnecessary expenses, so it is wise to ensure that the operator signs off on such duties on a daily basis.

All in all, making sure your machinery is well maintained and routinely inspected will not only extend the life and safety of any machinery your business owns, but it will also ensure that no extra costs are incurred and that the smooth running of your business is safeguarded.
