TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

In order to prevent forklift abuse wherever possible, counterbalance forklift operators are encouraged to take the following actions to keep the machine functioning in a safely manner and to make certain that the driver remains safe.

Tires: Tires should be replaced when they are worn badly or are missing chunks. If the tire is in rough shape, they could cause sharp jarring impacts to the operator, the axle components, to the wheel components, and to the load itself. Demanding applications involve utilizing correct kinds of tires for utmost performance of the forklift truck. In order to be certain that your machinery has the correct kind of tires, ask for an application survey from your local dealer.

Forks: Operating a lift truck with worn tires could add to the premature wearing of the bottom of the forks. This could really jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, that creates a potentially dangerous working environment. Being sure to complete frequent fork inspections by operators and by in-house maintenance technicians has to occur regularly so as to make sure that your machinery is operating at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Damage to the transmission system is an issue that is caused by operators who ride the inching pedal. To be able to prevent major part failure and breakdown, the inching pedal must ideally only be engaged when you are approaching a rack and when you want to apply the brakes while revving the engine. When the engine is revving, the hydraulics can work at full speed. When the hydraulics are not being used, the brake pedal is utilized for regular stopping of the truck.

Impact: Lift trucks will ultimately encounter numerous impacts with their environment and surroundings when driving fast. Possible impacts could incorporate the forks, wheels, backrests, tires and attachments. Following what operators drive which units by assigning equipment to an operator could help track who is responsible for the abuse to the machine. By installing an impact monitor, a keyless access system or a vehicle speed limiter as alternatives on your forklift truck could really help you to greatly reduce impact damage.

Training: The key to making certain that your equipment is properly maintained is regular and ongoing training. The equipment users have to be on board with proper maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new drivers are taught properly and know how to perform the required daily inspections so they could correctly operate the machinery before utilizing it.
