TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

To be able to avoid lift truck abuse wherever possible, counterbalance forklift drivers are encouraged to take the following actions to keep the machinery running in a safely manner and to make certain that the driver remains safe.

Tires: Tires should be replaced when they are missing chunks or are worn badly. If the tire is in rough shape, they could cause sharp jarring impacts to the driver, the axle components, to the wheel components, and to the load itself. Challenging operations require using proper types of tires for maximum performance of the forklift truck. So as to be certain that your machine has the proper tires, ask your local dealer for an application survey.

Forks: Additionally, driving a forklift with poorly worn tires could also cause premature wear on the bottom of the forks. This can really jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, which creates a potentially dangerous working environment. Being certain to carry out routine fork checks by in-house maintenance technicians and by operators has to happen on a regular basis so as to make sure that your machinery is operating at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Operators who ride on the inching pedal could cause damage to the transmission. To be able to prevent major part breakdown and failure, the inching pedal must ideally only be engaged when you want to apply the brakes while revving the engine and when you are approaching a rack. When the engine is revving, the hydraulics are allowed to work at full speed. When the hydraulics are not being used, the brake pedal is used for regular stopping of the truck.

Impact: Lift trucks would ultimately encounter numerous impacts with their surroundings and environment when operating at high speeds. Possible impacts can include the wheels, forks, tires, backrests and attachments. Following what operators drive which models by assigning equipment to an operator could help track who is responsible for the abuse to the machinery. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as alternatives on your lift truck can help you to greatly decrease impact damage.

Training: Ongoing training and regular training is vital to make certain that your machine is well maintained. Users of the machinery have to be on board with good maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new operators are taught correctly and know how to perform the required inspections every day so they can properly operate the machine before using it.
