Forklift Maintenance and Repair Services
Forklifts and hand trucks or pallet trucks have to be in good working condition in order to move bulk materials safely at warehouses, ports, shipping docks and construction sites. Your company's capital investment would serve you well in the long term if you have dependable forklift maintenance and repair services offering repair, inspection, maintenance and overhaul.
Companies may opt to train their own employees in house to provide forklift maintenance and forklift repair services, particularly within large operations which have fleets of forklifts. The manufacturer of the machine usually provides excellent documentation, such as on line guides, CDs and repair manuals, to guide both service engineers and mechanics. The correct set of tools and documentation is all you need for regular maintenance and for fixing and diagnosing minor issues. Common problems that require occasional addressing include those related to power systems, emission and fuel systems, hydraulics, transmissions, diesel engines and brakes. If the problems need specialized knowledge or are more complicated, dealers or suppliers can often be depended upon to offer assistance from certified service repair centers. Most service repair centers are very responsive to calls and provide emergency 24-hour service and diagnostic testing.
Other forklift parts which may need repair and maintenance are the following: axles and tires, levels of fluids, lights, alarms or horns, gauges and instruments, and carriage. Forklift attachments also require maintenance, like rotators, sideshifters, roll and barrel clamps, man baskets and drum handlers.
