Don’t Let Your Electric Forklift Maintenance Give You Shock

July 9, 2009 at 10:29 AMRing Power
Electric Forklift Maintenance

Electric forklifts are ideal for working indoors in many type of businesses, as well as capable of being operated outdoors, typically only on dry, well paved surfaces. Electric forklifts are available in a wide range of capacities too. Although it is true that electric Electric Forklift Maintenanceforklifts have less moving parts and require less overall maintenance, but they are not totally maintenance free. Here are a seven tips to keep your electric forklift operating smoothly.

BATTERY A battery operating in extreme heat may cause internal components on your electric forklift to wear faster. A lift truck operating with less power than required can burn contactors which in turn can damage the motor and battery resulting in higher cost.

HYDRAULIC OIL Hydraulic oil breaks down chemically and accumulates contaminants over time regardless of engine hours. Heat cycles also break down additives in engine oil and deteriorate lubricating capabilities, which can result in accelerated wear of the forklift's hydraulic components.

CONTACTOR TIPS Worn contactor tips can stick and cause electric motors to stay in the “on” position. Failure to maintain tips can cause damage to motor and battery, resulting in higher cost.

MOTORS & BRUSHES Excessive dirt and debris could accelerate wear of motor components and damage the commutator or armature. A damaged commutator bar can accelerate wear on brushes.

SWITCHES Wear on hydraulic control switches may cause the hydraulic functions to operate improperly or not operate at all. The result could be unexpected downtime or damage to the product and/or front end components.

BRAKING SYSTEM A maladjusted braking system, including the parking brake actuation switch, may reduce power to motors or enable the lift truck to be driven with the brake applied, resulting in accelerated wear of brake components.

STEERING SYSTEM Wheel bearings, tie rods and other steer axle components wear over time. Excessive wear can result in a “loose” or “wandering” steering condition. Leaks can contaminate the operating environment.

FRONT END SYSTEM Worn or cracked forks can fail without warning. Chain worn beyond 2% should be replaced. Improper mast sequencing may prohibit the mast and rollers from operating smoothly. If fork heel thickness is reduced to 90% of original thickness, the lift truck should not return to service.

Forklift Cooling System Maintenance

May 22, 2009 at 8:01 AMRing Power
Forklift Cooling Systems

Why is your forklift's cooling system maintenance such a hot topic?   forklift cooling radiator

Shift after shift, forklifts can encounter extreme temperature changes and prolonged exposure to harsh chemicals. Operating under these conditions negatively affects the cooling system, often causing corrosion, heat cracking, dry rot, and chemical deterioration. As a result, overheating occurs. Individual forklift cooling system components should be inspected on a regular basis to help minimize downtime and product damage.

  1. A low coolant level reduces cooling capability. Coolant also deteriorates chemically over time, leading to damage of cooling system components.

  2. Non-OEM rubber hoses often soften and then collapse, reducing coolant flow. As a result, overheating can occur.

  3. A forklift with loose belts and worn pulleys can contribute to overheating due to slippage.

  4. Clogged, bent or damaged fins can restrict airflow through the radiator core, causing overheating damage to the engine and transmission.

  5. Loose or damaged fan blades can cause the fan to be out of balance and vibrate, damaging bearings and radiator.

  6. If the radiator tank pressure cap does not maintain the correct pressure, it will not allow the radiator to obtain the proper water flow — which can cause your forklift to overheat.

  7. Since the radiator cools transmission fluid, an inefficient or leaking cooling system can result in damage to the transmission.

 Some forklift operating environments or applications may require optional equipment. E-mail Ring Power Lift Trucks for complete details, order parts for your forklift or to schedule a service appointment.
