Forklifts are vehicles commonly found inside warehouses, factories and other work locations where it is necessary to move heavy materials from one location to another. The mast is the mechanism situated on the front of the forklift that hydraulically lowers and lifts the load. The "cat" is the area that is protected where the operator of the forklift sits.
Forklifts are capable of lifting loads between one and five tons in weight. Various models could be used to lift shipping containers and much heavier loads.
Forklift tires must be maintained and checked regularly. The kinds of tires on various forklifts differ according to factors like for instance weight of the loads, ground surfaces and frequency of use. Each and every forklift driver must have access to tire press, replacement tires and a forklift jack.
Tire Maintenance Instructions
You should regularly inspect the tires. Watch for signs of damage and wear to the tires. If the wear on the tire exceeds 40 percent, it needs to be replaced.
When purchasing tires, ensure that you are purchasing the correct kind - solid, pneumatic or polyurethane.
When you need to replace the tires, the forklift jack must be positioned under the tire. You can easily change the tires if you lift the forklift high enough.
You can utilize the tire press to pull the tire from the rim and remove the damaged tire. Install the new tire and secure it properly. If you are changing more than one tire and you have only one jack, lower the forklift, then reposition the jack at the next tire.
On-site tire repair can be performed by a repair company. If the tire is extremely big for both mobile and in-house tire presses, the tire that is damaged would have to be transported to a shop that has a stationary tire press.
