TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

In order to prevent lift truck abuse wherever possible, counterbalance lift truck operators are encouraged to take the following actions to keep the machinery working in a safely manner and to ensure that the operator remains safe.

Tires: Whenever 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 proper tires for utmost functioning of the forklift truck. So as to be certain that your machinery has the proper type of tires, ask for an application survey from your local dealer.

Forks: Driving a lift truck with worn tires could add to the premature wearing of the bottom of the forks. This can greatly jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, which creates a potentially dangerous working environment. Being sure to carry out routine fork inspections by operators and by in-house maintenance technicians has to occur on a regular basis so as to make sure that your machinery is working at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Damage to the transmission system is a problem that is caused by drivers who ride the inching pedal. In order to prevent major component breakdown and failure, the inching pedal should 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 are allowed to work at full speed. When the hydraulics are not being utilized, the brake pedal is utilized for regular stopping of the truck.

Impact: Forklifts would ultimately encounter numerous impacts with their surroundings and environment when driving fast. Possible impacts can incorporate the forks, wheels, backrests, tires and attachments. Following which operators drive which units by assigning equipment to a driver could help track who is responsible for the abuse to the equipment. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as options on your forklift truck could help you to really decrease impact damage.

Training: The key to making certain that your equipment is well maintained is ongoing and regular training. The equipment users have to be on board with proper maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new drivers are properly trained and know how to carry out the necessary inspections daily so they can correctly operate the machinery prior to utilizing it.
