TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

To be able to prevent lift truck abuse wherever possible, counterbalance forklift drivers are encouraged to take the following measures to keep the machine running as safe as possible and to ensure that the driver remains safe.

Tires: When tires are worn badly or missing chunks, they should be replaced. Tires which are in terrible shape can cause jarring impacts to the driver, the axle components, to the wheel components and to the load itself. Challenging operations require utilizing correct tires for maximum functioning of the forklift truck. In order to be certain that your machine has the proper tires, ask for an application survey from your local dealer.

Forks: Driving a forklift 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, which can result in a potentially dangerous working environment. Being sure to complete frequent fork inspections by operators and by in-house maintenance technicians has to happen regularly so as to make certain that your machine is working at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Drivers who ride on the inching pedal could cause damage to the transmission. To be able to avoid major part failure and breakdown, the inching pedal must ideally just 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 could work at full speed. When the hydraulics are not being utilized, the brake pedal is used for regular stopping of the truck.

Impact: Whenever the unfortunate circumstance of a forklift encountering an impact to surroundings and products at high travel speeds happens, forks, wheels, tires, backrests and attachments all suffer. Following which operators drive what models by assigning machines to an operator can help track who is accountable for the abuse to the machine. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as options on your forklift truck can help you to really lessen impact damage.

Training: Ongoing training and regular training is key to make sure that your machinery is correctly maintained. Users of the equipment need to be on board with proper maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new drivers are correctly taught and know how to perform the necessary inspections daily so they can properly operate the machinery before using it.
