Maintenance is not just a good idea, it’s a requirement.

    Proper maintenance starts with the daily checks of the forklift.  But other aspects of the working environment are also important to maintain, including wheel chocks, trailer locks, dock plates, lighting, and travel lane markings for trucks and pedestrians.

    Daily checks on each lift truck are a requirement in many countries.  Using Hyster’s Daily Pre-Operation Check-List can be helpful. 

    A Periodic Maintenance program ensures each lift truck in a fleet receives timely, thorough inspections. In addition to ensuring up-time and productivity, proper maintenance and inspections improve confidence that trucks are operating safely.
