Kalmar Dual Fuel Forklifts

In nearly all situations, most people spend quite a lot of money purchasing their lift truck. Hence, it is very important to take good care of it so as to protect your investment well into the long run. It is a good idea to know the procedures which are undertaken in maintaining and taking care of this equipment.

One of the best ways to tell how good the engine is running is by starting the forklift up and listening closely to see how it runs. For example, if there are any knocks or misses, the equipment is defective and this must raise several concerns. In addition listen carefully for any squealing noise which come from the belts since these noises would provide you with a wealth of information.

When performing maintenance, several of the main parts you would have to pay attention to consist of the safety warning devices, horn, the overhead guard, the lights and the gauges. Any faulty parts or burnt out light bulbs must be replaced as soon as they are noticed. It is also essential to inspect the wiring.

When the above parts have been inspected carefully, proceed to the battery compartment in order to see if the terminals are clean. If the terminals are not clean, be sure to clean them well. Each and every cell of the battery needs to be checked so as to make sure that the fill level is topped up to the regulated amount.

An oil change is the next step to drain all the oil out of the equipment and then change the filters. The transmission filter, fuel filters and the hydraulic filter must be frequently replaced. Before fitting them, be sure to write the date on the new filters by using a permanent marker to be able to keep track.

When the oil change has been completed and new filters have been fitted, visually check the drive axle from underneath the machinery. Be certain to grease the axle if there is any grease fitting. Check the engine belts for any cracks or frays. If you find any, fix the issue accordingly. After that, check every other component of the machine including the wheels. If any type of fault or concern is detected, be sure to address it immediately so as to make certain the machinery is running at its safest and optimum levels.
