How can you extend your forklift’s life span?

We all well know the importance of getting those most out of our forklifts – and there are some very simple things we can do to extend the lifespan of our forklifts. Take a look at what you can do to get the most out of your forklift below.

Change the engine oil. Easily forgotten, very simple but hugely effective. Ideally you should change the oil in your forklift every 200 hours of usage. Whilst changing the oil it also makes sense to schedule regular maintenance checks, just in case. Better safe than sorry!

Stay clean! Not just the forklift, but make sure that the environment your forklift is operating in is clean too. Dry and clean environments to store your forklift in when you’re not using it too are incredibly important for keeping your forklift in top shape for longer.

Investment in training is vital. Having someone use a forklift without training can cause damage that will shorten the lifespan of your vehicle. Full and regular training will have a huge impact on the longevity of your forklift.
