You don’t have to be a meteorologist or a Game of Thrones fan to know that Winter is coming. That nip in the air and the falling leaves should be enough to tell you that it’s time to prepare your forklift for Winter weather.
It’s something you might not even think about, but the fact is your forklift is every bit susceptible to Winter’s bite as your car or home is, and Fall is the best time to start getting ready.
Typical cold weather damage includes cracked engine blocks, oil coagulation, and broken hydraulic pump shafts. Batteries weakened by Summer’s heat fail in cold weather.
If you don’t prep and protect your battery, engine and hydraulic systems you might dodge any serious problems but if there is trouble, it can get expensive- sometimes to the tune of thousands of dollars. You’re gambling against Mother Nature and everyone knows the House always wins.
