Improve the Performance of Your Forklift With Our Maintenance Tips

In order to keep your forklift performing effectively, we recommend following the tips below to maintain productivity for your business.

1. Stick to a Regular Oil Change Schedule

Regular oil changes enhance longevity and lifespan. It is recommended to change the oil every three months to increase fuel efficiency, improve overall performance and prevent any combustion problems.

2. Check the Tyres

Checking your tyre pressures can help to avoid any accidents in your warehouse. It is recommended that your tyres are checked on a weekly basis.

3. Regular Battery Maintenance

To keep your forklift running smoothly, and to extend its life, it is necessary to keep the battery working efficiently. Keep your forklift battery at a safe temperature. Cleaning the top of the forklift batteries with battery cleaner or warm water is not only a good maintenance practice; it is also required on some batteries to maintain the warranty.
