Reliable Forklift Preventative Maintenance Plans

Forklifts are helpful machines and vital equipment for businesses that frequently handle large quantities of material or need to frequently transport those items. They are significant investments for companies. To help protect those investments, we offer forklift preventative maintenance plans and checklists. Our checklist is a series of essential items we check when reviewing your forklift. These items include checking the fluid, looking for visible damage, inspecting tires daily, and reviewing the inspection decal. Here is a better look at some of the items our technicians check when looking over your forklift:

  • Checklist for Every Forklift We Inspect – Regardless of the type or power source, we inspect the engine oil and air filter, lubricate the chassis and mast components, and thoroughly inspect the other systems within the forklift. We’ll also review and clear the radiator, check the fuel system, and thoroughly inspect the brake system. We follow OSHA and manufacturer requirements for each inspection.
  • Internal Combustion Engine – We’ll review the engine oil levels, inspect all fluid levels, and refill if needed. We’ll then examine the radiator, air filter, and any hose and belts to ensure there are no hidden complications.
  • Battery Powered – It’s standard to review water levels and check for sulfur deposits that can hinder battery performance or lead to a short circuit. Finally, we’ll inspect all the wires to ensure nothing is exposed, loose, or frayed.
  • Liquid Propane – First, we’ll inspect the tank to ensure it’s properly mounted and doesn’t have any leakage. Then we’ll look at the position of the relief valve to ensure it points upwards.

The Importance of Forklift Preventative Maintenance

While forklifts are built to last, certain parts and components are prone to wear and tear due to constant use. To protect your forklift and your investment, forklift preventative maintenance is essential. Regular maintenance can help ensure optimal performance while reducing costly emergency repairs. Consistent care ensures your forklifts are easier to maneuver and makes your warehouse operations more efficient. Our forklift preventative maintenance plan is recommended every 250 hours of run time. We run forklifts through a 100+ point inspection and create maintenance schedules designed to keep your machines running smoothly while catering to their use time. These plans result in less downtown, longer equipment life, and a better trade-in value on your next forklift purchase.

What Are the Benefits of Forklift Preventative Maintenance?

You may understand the importance of forklifts to your business and how they need maintenance and servicing to keep them running efficiently. It's possible you may still need to consider how forklift preventative maintenance can benefit your business or how it helps you avoid substantial risk. Routine preventative maintenance can help protect the operator's life in case of an accident or mechanical failure. It also helps avoid unexpected part failures, resulting in ordering expeditated replacement parts and incurring additional costs on overtime labor or a rental forklift until your fleet is operational again. Our forklift preventative maintenance plans help avoid hidden fees such as employee idle times, the premium cost of ordering parts, reduced efficiency, and more. Preventive maintenance is essential, and if you have any questions, contact us. Our representatives are standing by to help.
