TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

In order to avoid forklift misuse wherever possible, counterbalance lift truck operators are encouraged to take the following measures to keep the machinery running in a safely manner and to make certain that the operator remains safe.

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

Forks: Moreover, operating a lift truck with poorly worn tires could also cause premature wear on the bottom of the forks. This could really jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, that creates a potentially dangerous working environment. Being certain to carry out frequent fork checks by in-house maintenance technicians and by operators has to happen regularly so as to make certain that your machinery is operating at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Operators who ride on the inching pedal could cause damage to the transmission. To be able to avoid major component failure and breakdown, the inching pedal should ideally just be engaged when you want to apply the brakes while revving the engine and when you are approaching a rack. When the engine is revving, the hydraulics can 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 lift truck encountering an impact to surroundings and products at high travel speeds happens, forks, wheels, backrests, tires and attachments all suffer. Following what operators drive which units by assigning machines to an operator can help track who is accountable for the abuse to the equipment. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as alternatives on your lift truck could really help you to greatly reduce impact damage.

Training: Ongoing training and regular training is key to make sure that your equipment is properly maintained. Users of the machinery have to be on board with good maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new operators are trained properly and know how to carry out the required checks daily so they could correctly operate the equipment prior to utilizing it.
