Now that the days are getting a little shorter and the temperatures will soon be dropping along with the leaves, it’s time to prepare for the end of the Summer and your seasonal forklift maintenance.
As always, every shift should begin and end with the routine internal and external maintenance inspection as required by OSHA.
In addition to that procedure, let’s check your forks and look for cracks, bends, blade wear and other extreme damage that could compromise the integrity of the forks.
Check the welds on the forklift to make sure they are intact and not showing any signs of failing.
Take a good hard look at your tires, check the treads and make sure they are filled properly and not missing any rubber.
