TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

TCM Counterbalance Forklifts

To make sure that the operator of the forklift remains safe and to avoid lift truck abuse wherever possible, the counterbalance forklift operator is encouraged to take these following actions to keep the machine running optimally.

Tires: Whenever tires are worn badly or missing chunks, they should be replaced. Tires which are in terrible shape could cause jarring impacts to the driver, the axle parts, to the wheel parts and to the load itself. Challenging applications involve using correct tires for maximum functioning of the lift truck. In order to be certain that your equipment has the correct type of tires, ask your local dealer for an application survey.

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

Transmission: Operators who ride on the inching pedal could cause damage to the transmission. In order to prevent major component breakdown and failure, the inching pedal should 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: Whenever the unfortunate circumstance of a forklift encountering an impact to surroundings and products at high travel speeds happens, forks, wheels, tires, backrests and attachments all suffer. Following which operators drive which models by assigning equipment to a driver 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 forklift truck could help you to greatly decrease impact damage.

Training: The key to making sure that your equipment is correctly maintained is regular and ongoing training. The equipment users need to be on board with good maintenance and safety applications. It is required that all new drivers are correctly taught and know how to perform the necessary inspections every day so they can correctly operate the equipment prior to utilizing it.
