Nissan Stand Up Forklift

Nissan Stand Up Forklift

It is completely different to operate a stand-up lift truck as opposed to a sit-down model. The way you move and pick up cargo in addition to your movements are totally different. If you do not have correct training for utilizing a stand-up model, you can possibly cause harm co-employees or to yourself. When using a stand-up model, you must follow the proper safety regulations. There are a few basic operating standards which should be met when operating a stand-up model.

To begin on a stand-up unit forklift, it is essential to get a good feel for the steering knob and the controls. Instead of a steering wheel, the steering is handled using the knob steering plate. Take note that this knob moves really fast, thus, you should get used to moving it gently so as to be sure not to over steer. The horn is located on the control handle, like with the control for forwards, backwards and the movement of the forks. The floor pedal enables the forklift power to move.

When you are set to begin, turn the key to start the machine. Be sure that your forks are not extended. If you are moving around the floor, the forks must be pointed a little upwards. Do not drive with the forks in their extended position. If you are moving forward, move the control handle forward and to make the lift move forward, step on the pedal. If you are backing up, be sure to beep your horn in order to warn those around you. Look behind you before stepping on the pedal in order to make sure the way is clear and safe. Next, while stepping on the pedal, pull the control handle towards you. Stay focused and alert and make sure that you are always operating in a safe manner.

When approaching a corner with the lift truck, turn the steering knob in 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 during forward travel. If you are turning left, your steering knob would go in a counter-clockwise direction.

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