Signs Your Straight Mast Forklift Needs Repair
Damaged Lift Chains – With proper maintenance and lubrication, forklift chains can operate for approximately 6,000 hours. However, damaged chains pose major risks for business operations. If you notice rust, kinking segment, corrosion, and damaged links, bring your straight mast forklift for immediate repairs. Failing to take necessary actions to replace or repair your forklift chains can potentially damage your equipment’s internal mechanisms. Prevent this from happening by conducting regular inspections.
Distorted Forks – Over time, forks lose their shape and bend. A distorted fork becomes a liability for your business as it can be the cause of damaged goods and safety issues for forklift drivers and pedestrians. No matter the cause, this calls for the attention of immediate repair and replacement.
Fast-Draining Battery – You should charge batteries when they are in the 20 to 30 percent battery life range to maximize their life span. Otherwise, they may not hold a charge quicker than they normally do. Other signs of battery problems involve flickering display lights and low response time. Problems that occur in the battery itself can lead to smoke and acid corrosion.
Stuck Mast – It is necessary to have the mast well-lubricated for smooth performance. Otherwise, its mechanism may jolt as you drive, which could be the cause of serious load damage or injuries.
