A few tips to help you look after your fork lift are:
One of the most important factors to the smooth running of a fork lift is the person who is actually operating it, as a trained driver is one that is safe, careful and will be able spot any problem as soon as it arises.
Regularly Check the Tyres
Tyres are the only suspension on a fork lift, so letting them wear down excessively could also result in drive-train wear, mast bearing wear or an accelerated wheel bearing – all of which are much more costly to repair than the expense of new tyres.
Keep the Machine Clean
Quite an obvious tip, but one many might neglect in a busy working environment. Whether you’re using a fork lift on a muddy reclamation yard Peterborough or a seemingly clean warehouse, your fork lift will still require a regular cleaning to ensure the smooth running of all components.
