SEVERAL USEFUL TIPS

We are happy to include a number of handy tips.

CHARGE BATTERIES

Battery-driven machines should always be charged at the end of the day. Use a good-quality extension lead (maximum length 25 metres, minimum cross section 1.5m�) and do not connect more than 2 machines to a reel. Make sure there is a reliable electric supply, and avoid too many being connected to a single group. Power flow is required for charging electric forklifts. The average charging time required is 8 hours. Charging batteries is a chemical process that needs to be continuous. This means interim charging of a machine is absolutely pointless and can even be counterproductive. To avoid any problems we advise you to rent a diesel powered generator!

REFUELLING OF DIESEL MACHINES

Make sure you do not continue to use diesel driven machines until the tank is completely empty. This will result in unnecessary delays, as a service mechanic will then have to bleed the fuel lines. So keep a regular eye on the fuel level. We can provide you with fuel tanks, thus insuring a continuous stock of fuel on-site.

NON MARKING TIRES

Non-marking tires: A large number of machines for indoor use are fitted with non-marking tires. Your client requires this sometimes.

OPERATION OF MACHINES

Operating machines: When operating machines, remember that these will respond immediately to your commands, so move the operating joysticks carefully and smoothly!

CLEAN FUEL

Clean fuel: If you need to use a forklift extensively and a diesel-powered machine is not permitted, than you could opt for a LPG-driven forklift. This is clean fuel. Make good use of our knowledge and calls us with all your questions!
