Top signs and symptoms when your forklift requires maintenance or repair
Forklifts are the key factors of the equipment using indoor/outdoor operation such as construction site, logistics, and warehousing industries. They have a big role in cutting out extra time, reducing costs, and offering a safer work platform for your workers.
Do you know how the downtime of Forklift costs you heavily?
In fact, proper Forklift Maintenance can help avoid the extra financial burden and increase productivity. However, in order to keep your forklifts in good condition, you need to know when you need to have maintenance/ repair…
Regular inspection can obviously help eliminate most of the issues at its root. However, what about those problems that have already surfaced? Are your operators can find those problem.
Below is a Checklist to find the signs of your forklift when it requires repair.
Top Signs when Your Forklift Need Maintenance
Inspection every month is a good way to understand the condition of your machines.
But even if your forklift seems in good condition, it could be damaged inside.
To that end, operators should know what they need to pay attention to in order to avoid further damage to forklifts. Our forklift checklist will help sort that out.
Check out these signs so that you don’t miss out on subtle cues indicating a need for forklift repairs.
1. Forklift Chain Is Damaged
Damage in forklift chains can become the cause of machine failure. In fact, the forklift may halt in the middle of a job resulting in increased downtime and project costs.
Forklift chains usually don’t require replacing as long as they are well lubricated with oil. However, any sign of corrosion, rust, kinking, or overly extended chain indicates the need for repairs or replacements.
Missing out on these signs can end up costing you heavily as chains are an important component of the internal functioning of a forklift.
It should also be noted that not getting the chain replaced on time can also damage the load you’re carrying.
2. Oil Leak
This is one of the most important aspects to include in your forklift checklist. Look out for leaks within or beneath the forklift. If the oil is leaking, there’s a good chance it will be visible around the job site.
Oil leaking is a sign that less oil is available to lubricate the different moving parts of the machinery. Thus, leading to increased friction and grinding of gears, which interrupts the smooth functioning of the forklift.
Most of the operators make the mistake of adding in more oil or just wiping it, which is, obviously, not an exact solution. Repairing the root cause of the oil leak is important. Otherwise, it may lead to hydraulic system failure.
3. Battery Drainage
Since the battery forklift has no exhausted gas it’s environmentally friendly and suitable to use for indoor operations.
The battery is easy to take care and no need to refill the fuel but it’s time to check carefully the battery condition if you find that it’s not charged as usual. To assess the condition, we can compare the current charging time with previous records.
Generally speaking, it’s recommended to charge the battery when 20 – 30% remaining.
Using the right charger and filling the battery fluid at the right level can also help keep the battery in good condition for a long period of time.
4. Forks Are Worn Or Damaged
Forks are clearly essential to forklift operation. It seems quite tough and seems not broken easily but if you are not taking care of their condition it can be an economic as well as safety hazard. On the financial front, damaged forks are may not be able to hold the weight and damage the goods in transit.
Moreover, errors in loading and unloading goods can affect the safety of on-site workers. It’s natural for forks to get damaged with time depending on the load and the amount of operation.
Because of these reasons, you should take immediate action when you notice surface cracks, bents, or misalignment of the forks.
Additionally, wear and tear because of long-term use also reduce the fork capacity. Visually check the condition of the fork on a regular basis, and if there is a problem take immediate actions.
Keep these basic tips in your mind and don’t forget regular checks to avoid financial damage and to ensure your safety. It takes some time but small steps prevent major accidents.
Other warning signs for repairs
Except for the above-mentioned common issues, kindly check the below list. It helps you to maintain the forklift in good condition and for longer life.
・High emission of white or black smoke from the exhaust system, carrying a strong odor.
➡Time to check the filter/exhausting air system.
・Check driving technic of the operator.
➡Rough forklift operation cause to damage the tire.
・Seat get high temperature.
➡Might have engine/battery trouble.
・Slow mechanical response while lifting or using attachments.
➡Might have trouble with electric system/ hydraulic system.
・Wear and damage in mast sticks.
➡Hindering the lifting functions and leads to a major accident.
As long as you keep checking these points regularly, the life of the forklift becomes longer and you can use it in good conditions. Also no need to worry about having sudden expenses for the repair costs.
