10 ways to effectively reduce the cost of forklift use

Forklift maintenance can effectively extend the life of the forklift, and it is also a guarantee for safe work, so that your forklift can be in optimal working condition at any time. In some logistics distribution centers and warehouses that require high logistics efficiency, due to the large daily shipments, in order to reduce the logistics cost, the forklift is almost 24 hours working, then how do we carry out simple maintenance on the forklift to protect our work? What about efficiency?



Frequent replacement of wearable tires, this is a must-do work, just like a sports car, due to full-load work, tire wear is very serious, so the sports car race must be better to run a tire, so that you can continue the game, the forklift is the same, For example, internal combustion forklifts, electric forklifts, such tires will be used, and tire wear or even block will make the forklift not stable during the work, resulting in huge vibration, which has great damage to the electrical system and hydraulic system.

Therefore, when we choose a forklift, in addition to choosing a more wear-resistant tire, it is based on the actual situation of the road surface. When choosing a forklift, we must pay attention to the material and type of the wheel. Whether it needs a shock wheel or a load wheel, a tire, their What are the characteristics of materials and hardness (for example: polyurethane wheels are often used in indoor forklifts, such as electric pallet trucks, electric stackers, because they are wear-resistant, work noise is small, and the damping wheel is used The ground is not very flat.)


To keep the working environment of the forklift clean, pay attention to the cleaning work of the forklift itself. The environment in which the forklift works, such as warehouses and production workshops, generally has some debris such as wooden pallet chips, cling film, garbage, rags, production waste, etc. How are these sundries wrapped around fork wheels or tires, especially manual trucks and Manual stacking will have a profound impact on work efficiency, so it is necessary to check and timely remove the effects of these debris on the work of the forklift, and always clean the floor of the forklift workplace, even considering plastic pallets or metal pallets. Instead of wooden pallets.


When hydraulic oil and lubricating oil are added in time, the forklift machinery needs more maintenance, and the shortage of hydraulic oil will cause the forklift to fail to reach the rated height and rated load of its work, which will also affect the working efficiency.


It is necessary to operate the forklift according to the operation manual of the forklift. Do not operate it by mistake. If the operation is light, it will damage the forklift. If it is heavy, it will cause a forklift accident.


To reduce impact damage, in too narrow aisles, it is best to arrange a well-trained forklift driver to work in this distance, and pay attention to the vibration alarm and turning lights to avoid hitting people.


Take more time to train your forklift operators and teach them safety knowledge. This will reduce the damage rate to the forklift itself and the cargo, and also greatly reduce the forklift failure rate.


To arrange preventive maintenance, it is best to develop maintenance plans, regularly maintain and maintain the forklifts, and in the long run, develop maintenance plans and implement them to save a lot of money, which can prevent major components from failing, and also eliminate many expensive repairs. Cost to extend the life of your forklift.


To have a strict forklift management system, when the forklift is not suitable, please remove the key to avoid unnecessary damage caused by other non-operators. To tell the operator during the forklift process, for some narrow aisles, you must first get off the width of the aisle to estimate whether the forklift and cargo can pass safely.


After working every day, take half an hour or an hour to listen to the "sound" of the forklift. Since the forklift is often in full working condition, please ensure the working sound of the forklift to ensure the normal working of the forklift to ensure the working sound of the forklift. Whether it is normal, whether it can be resolved tomorrow.


Battery maintenance and battery charging training are a must. The battery of the forklift is very important. Many batteries are lead-acid batteries, but a small number of batteries are maintenance-free batteries. Most of the batteries need special maintenance. At this time, pay attention to check the distilled water of the forklift. If it is not enough, please add it in time. Attention should be paid when charging, although most rechargeable batteries are smart charging, but still can not be plugged in for a long time, otherwise it will cause damage to the charger. Due to the special nature of the battery, it is best to train your forklift operator to avoid costly repairs due to improper battery maintenance.
