TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

To be able to avoid forklift misuse wherever possible, counterbalance forklift operators are encouraged to take the following measures to keep the machine functioning in a safely manner and to make sure that the driver remains safe.

Tires: Whenever tires are worn badly or missing chunks, they must be replaced. Tires that are in poor shape could cause jarring impacts to the operator, the axle parts, to the wheel parts and to the load itself. Challenging operations involve utilizing correct tires for maximum functioning of the forklift truck. So as to be certain that your machine has the correct type of tires, ask for an application survey from your local dealer.

Forks: Moreover, driving a forklift with badly worn tires can also generate premature wear on the bottom of the forks. This can greatly jeopardize the ability of the forklift's truck to lift, which could result in a potentially dangerous work setting. Being certain to complete frequent fork inspections by operators and by in-house maintenance technicians has to happen regularly in order to make sure that your equipment is operating at maximum capacity.

Transmission: Damage to the transmission system is a problem that is caused by operators who ride the inching pedal. In order to avoid major component breakdown and failure, the inching pedal should ideally just 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 will ultimately encounter numerous impacts with their environment and surroundings when driving at high speeds. Possible impacts may incorporate the forks, wheels, tires, backrests and attachments. Following what operators drive what units by assigning machinery to an operator could help track who is accountable for the misuse to the machine. By installing an impact monitor, a vehicle speed limiter or a keyless access system as alternatives on your forklift truck can help you to really decrease impact damage.

Training: Ongoing training and regular training is important to make sure that your equipment is well maintained. Users of the machinery need to be on board with proper maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new operators are trained properly and know how to carry out the necessary inspections daily so they could correctly operate the machine prior to using it.
