Manitou Forklifts Massachusetts
Regular inspections could greatly help to lessen forklift repairs and save you copious amounts of money in the long-run. The standing joke in the business is a lift truck technician coining the saying "Pay me now, or pay me later," since it normally costs more to procrastinate when it comes to forklifts. Like for example, the minor fixes which go unrepaired could later turn into costly repairs.
Oil leaks are a very serious problem if they are left unchecked. Check for damage or oil leaks on a regular basis. Oil leakage can cause uncontrolled mast movement and this could be very unsafe. Whether the leaks are outside or in the cylinder, the end result can lead to cylinder drift and loss of vital fluid. When damage or leaks are detected, you normally would need to replace the complete cylinder assembly or the seals.
Be sure to pay attention as you don't want mast lift chains to stretch beyond acceptable limits. Watch carefully for any signs of damage or wear and tear. Check frequently with a chain wear gauge so as to monitor the wear. If the chain is rusted or worn beyond 2 percent, you must replace the chain. Following these tips would help keep your equipment functioning optimally.
When utilizing the lift control lever, the mast has to be moved down and up smoothly, making sure to check if the mast is moving smoothly backwards and forwards. You might have to lubricate the mast strip sliding surfaces if the sliding surfaces are binding. Lubricate their fittings also, because there is a fitting located on either side of the inner mast. The lift bracket side rollers are another lubrication spot.
The forks need to be inspected for wear, cracks and damage as worn or cracked forks could fail with out any warnings. Of course, any damaged fork means taking the truck out of service at once. If the cracks are deeper than just on the surface, they should be replaced because they truly can't be safely fixed.
