  • Problem with old Forklift: Buying an old or used forklift, it I very obvious that there will be obvious issues. While using the old forklift we may with bundles of problems .So let’s look forward the problems that we can face:
  • Lift Problems: Defects in managing loads, hydraulic issues are the key problems that can be observed in case of lift problems. Added to these problems are Mechanical defects are also found in case of old forklifts. Forklift that basically can’t lift is basically useless and worthless.
  • Electrical problem: Certain important operational issues may takes place as indoor forklifts are electrically driven by batteries, drive and transmission. So several problems may appear in operation of the forklifts. Electrical issues may be trivial or serious. But it is potentially expensive.
  • Steering, brakes and suspension Problems: Problems related to these parts are related to onsite safety and performance. Even many at times it is truly very unsafe if there is problem related to steering or suspension problems.
  • Benefits of New Forklifts: Forklifts are very useful machines and can be used in warehousing and storage facility. It is mostly common in Brisbane. Without these machineries, warehousing is very difficult and cannot be operated efficiently. It can be even use with ease and comfort .It is mostly used for carrying heavy goods and supplies from one place to another with less effort. The most advantageous feature of Forklifts that has been observed is that they have the capability to reach things located at higher positions.
  1. Great lifting and Loading Capacities: Forklifts are small but compact machines designed to work in compact and tight areas. They are capable of lifting different loads of varying capacities. We are very lucky that we are being offered with forklifts with varying capacities and different configuration according to our own needs.
  2. Ease of Maintenance: Forklifts are generally simple operations and maintenance is truly guaranteed. Proper and essential maintenance is required for long service and also keeping the machine in a good working condition. Most forklift manufacturer of today offers a preventive and maintenance full plan.
  3. Increased Safety: Before forklifts, people are customized for lifting and moving loads such as ropes, cables, pulleys and other combinations. Improvised lifting machineries are not at all safe. Forklifts of today are really very safe. This is due to improved and increased safety conditions to the workers. Forklift operators are also trained how to use the machineries in order to enhance the safety.
  4. Fuel Efficiency: Electric forklifts offer extreme of fuel efficiency. Diesel no longer the internal combustion options. LPG and CNG can also have benefits in the area of fuel efficiency.
  5. Air quality and noise reduction: Electric and LPG OR CNG forklifts offer the improved quality of internal usage and prevent air pollution and noise. This results in low emission of alternative fuel forklifts.
  6. Service: Forklift vendors offer both full maintenance and preventive service plans. While full maintenance plans covers breakdown and repairs, maintenance over oil and filter changes and transmission servicing and general maintenance.
  7. Affordable: Vendors often offer leasing and financing options either directly or through third party. For lot of small businesses leases are preferred option as they reduce the upfront cost of new equipment.

While viewing through these advantages we can determine what types of forklifts are preferred to be chosen by us.

  • Operators must be qualified: Trained individuals should only make an access to the forklifts. They should also contain the license to use it.
  • Appropriate Clothing must be worn: It is to be ensured that operators should have safety work wear consisting of hats, safety shoes and jackets etc. Loose fitting clothes are not allowed as they are caught in the machinery. If hands containing grease then the operators are not allowed to hold the machine parts.
  • Examine equipment before use: Routine check should be done by the operators in order to enhance safety. Things that should always be checked are breaks, control of the steering, devices that helps to warn and tyres. If any noted damage is observed then the forklift is not allowed to be used, needs to be repaired. There should be convenient position for stacking and pickup facility.
  • Starting up the Forklift:
  • For safety purposes it is very important to make use of the steps and hand grabs to seat them comfortably in the forklift.
  • Ensure that equipment controls are in reach of the operator. Seat positions and mirrors are adjusted according to the operator’s needs.
  • Forklifts are not allowed to be started until their seat belts are fastened around them and they are comfortably seated in the position. All body parts are safely inside the confines of the operator’s cabin.
  • Considering The Surrounding Environment:
  • While working the operator must be very careful regarding the working sites rules and guidelines.
  • Operator should drive the equipment only in machinery designated roadways.
  • All signs including the maximum floor loadings and the clearance heights should be maintained.
  • Cautious precautions should be taken regarding the load height, mast or an upright post and tall overhead guard of the forklift should be aware off while entering the existing buildings.
  • Near the edge of the loading dock or ramp the forklift should be driven very carefully.
  • Not to be operated on bridge plates unless they can support the forklift.
  • Operate at Safe Speed: Never try to proceed past the limit. While taking the turns and corners it should done very carefully to minimise the risk of tipping.
  • Avoid Hazard:
  • Hazards like bumps or uneven ground surfaces or slippery.
  • Hazards like lose ground objects can be seen.
  • Use horns positively when closing on a corner or while taking turns and loops.
  • Keep a safe distance from other trucks and vehicles
  • Make sure there is always enough space to stop readily
  • Ensure load is stable and secure
  • Make sure of clear Visibility
  • Forklifts are for carrying loads only.
  • Keep clear of the mast
  • Driving on Ramps
  • Ensure Forklift is not overloaded.
