Nissan Stand Up Forklift

Nissan Stand Up Forklift

Compared to a sit-down model, the stand-up forklift unit is totally different to utilize. The way at which you pick up loads and your movements are totally different. If you do not have correct training for operating a stand-up unit, you can potentially cause harm to yourself or to co-employees. When operating a stand-up model, you need to follow the correct safety rules. There are several basic operating standards which should be met when utilizing a stand-up model.

When starting, stand up on the forklift so as to get a feel for the steering knob and the controls. The steering is handled with the knob steering plate as opposed to a steering wheel. Remember that this specific knob moves very fast, hence, you need to be accustomed to moving it carefully so as to be sure not to over steer. The horn is situated on the control handle, like with the control for forwards, backwards and the fork movement. The floor pedal allows the forklift power to move.

Turn the key to start the equipment's engine if you are set to start. The forks should not be extended at this stage. When you are moving all-around the floor, the forks should be pointed slightly upwards. Do not drive with extended forks. If you are traveling forwards, move the control handle forward and to make the lift move forward, step on the pedal. If you are backing up, be certain to beep your horn in order to alert people around you. Look behind you before stepping on the pedal so as to make sure the path is clear and safe. Then, while stepping on the pedal, pull the control handle towards you. Always stay focused and alert and make sure that you are operating in a safe manner at all times.

When approaching a corner with the lift truck, turn the steering knob towards the direction you are heading. Make sure to keep your foot on the accelerator and keep your hands on the control handle. When turning right, the steering knob would move in a clockwise direction while moving forward. If you are turning left, your steering knob will go in a counter-clockwise direction.

If you have just operated sit down units, the stand-up versions could take some getting used to. If you take some time to know the machinery and with some training, you would be able to quickly and efficiently handle loads in little time.
