Mitsubishi Outdoor Forklifts

The outdoor lift trucks made by Mitsubishi have earned a great reputation of operating at peak performance. You do however have to take good care of it and do frequent repairs in order to get the longest life possible from your equipment. If you take care of your forklift it would perform in an optimum way and as safely and efficiently as possible. The following tips below would help you increase engine life and maintain engine performance.

Carry Out Pre-Shift or Daily Inspections: By frequently inspecting all of the fluid levels in the engine, in addition to the additional related items described in the Maintenance and Operation Manual of the lift truck, you will considerably maintain your equipment's longevity and performance.

A PM or Planned Maintenance Program should be established and followed: A good planned maintenance program will really follow the engine maintenance schedule which the manufacturer has set out. Several of the major things the planned maintenance program includes are regularly replacing appropriate filters and the engine oil.

It is also very helpful to implement an engine oil analysis. This analysis would breakdown all the elements and materials found in the oil. For example, unusually high amounts of silica or metals could indicate there may be a failed part in of the engine. Furthermore, these findings can indicate that the engine is ingesting dirty air. If all these concerns are dealt with and investigated early, you will greatly help reduce repair expenses and increase the overall engine life.

Check and Change the Air Filter: Poor fuel economy or weak engine performance could be the outcome if you overlook to check and or replace the air filter in the engine on a regular basis. For instance, engine life could be drastically reduced if you are working with a restricted air filter that allows dirty and unfiltered air to be pulled into the engine.

Inspect the Cooling System: The life of an engine and its performance could be greatly affected by the cooling system. The engine is engineered and designed to work within a particular temperature range. Once that range is exceeded, damage may occur to the engine's internal components. Regular maintenance should consist of replacing the engine coolant too. Failure to perform this type of maintenance can cause damaged engine components, specially regarding any components which are made of aluminum.
