TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

To make certain that the operator of the lift truck remains safe and to avoid forklift misuse wherever possible, the counterbalance forklift driver is encouraged to take these following measures to keep the machine running optimally.

Tires: Tires should be replaced when they are worn badly or are missing chunks. If the tire is in rough shape, they can cause sharp jarring impacts to the driver, the axle components, to the wheel components, and to the load itself. Demanding operations require utilizing proper tires for maximum functioning of the forklift truck. In order to be certain that your equipment has the proper type of tires, ask your local dealer for an application survey.

Forks: Driving a lift truck with worn tires can add to the premature wearing of the bottom of the forks. This could really jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, that creates a potentially dangerous work setting. Being sure to complete routine fork inspections by in-house maintenance technicians and by operators has to happen on a regular basis so as to make sure that your equipment is operating at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Drivers who ride on the inching pedal can cause damage to the transmission. To be able to prevent major part failure and breakdown, the inching pedal should ideally only be engaged when you are approaching a rack and when you want to apply the brakes while revving the engine. When the engine is revving, the hydraulics are allowed to work at full speed. When the hydraulics are not being used, the brake pedal is utilized for regular stopping of the truck.

Impact: Forklifts will ultimately encounter numerous impacts with their surroundings and environment when driving fast. Possible impacts can incorporate the forks, wheels, tires, backrests and attachments. Following what operators drive what units by assigning equipment to a driver can help track who is accountable for the misuse to the machine. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as alternatives on your lift truck can really help you to greatly lessen impact damage.

Training: Ongoing training and regular training is key to make certain that your equipment is well maintained. Users of the equipment need to be on board with proper maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new operators are taught properly and know how to carry out the required inspections daily so they can correctly operate the equipment before utilizing it.
