Batteries seem to have become a regular part of our hi-tech lifestyles. At any given time you’re charging several items and something else is running out of juice at exactly the wrong moment.
You pay attention to how to best manage the batteries in your smartphone, but you need to pay just as much attention to your batter-operated forklift to keep it working at peak performance.
For starters, focus on your batteries. Water regularly, perform gravity checks and voltage testing and never over-discharge. Equalize your charge twice a month. If you own a batter-operated forklift you know about all these processes but if you do have any questions we can certainly help.
Wear and tear on the other parts of the battery-powered forklift are very similar to internal combustion or LP powered. Consider your battery as the “engine” of the electric lift and keep it watered, etc, and the regular maintenance of the rest of the forklift is the same.
