[/vc_column_text][et_separator top=”16″ element_id=”89771″ element_css=”.et-separator-89771 .line {margin-top:16px;margin-bottom:24px;border-bottom-color:#e0e0e0;border-bottom-style:solid;}”][et_accordion collapsible=”true”][et_accordion_item open=”true” title=”How can I tell how much weight a forklift will pick up?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]On all brands of forklifts, information is located on a capacity plate, showing load center and capacity ratings. The plate is installed from the factory, and as attachments are added or removed in the field, new factory plates can be ordered and placed on the forklift.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”What information do I need to have ready when I call for parts pricing?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Equipment make, model number, and serial number[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Does ForksMax works on all brands and makes of Forklifts?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Yes, ForksMax works on all brands and makes of material handling equipment, dock and doors, as well as compact construction equipment.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Why not wait until my forklift breaks before getting a PM?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]The PM (Preventing Maintenance) can prolong the time between repairs, keep the equipment operating longer, and reduce overall expenses.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”How do I know when it’s time to get new tires for the forklift truck?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]There are many reasons to replace tires. Chunking and cracking of the tire tread is one reason.  Normal wear is expected with regular use, so check the tread. There could be a safety line on the tire to indicate replacement wear.  Some tires have no wear line, and in these cases, use the top of the tire size or tire brand name as the wear line. If your equipment has pneumatic (air filled) tires, a flat tire causes most repairs due to puncture. Sometimes we can patch, but the patch repair possibility depends on the puncture size and location.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”How do I know when it’s time for new forks?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Once wear reaches 10% on the heel, the fork must be replaced. Ten percent wear results in a 20% reduction in rated fork capacity and represents a significant exposure for accident.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Are forklifts required to have a back-up alarm?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Yes, because the operator’s view to the rear is obstructed, For example, a forklift with an enclosed cab should have a back-up alarm because the cab itself is an obstruction to vision. In addition, if the alarm is supplied by the original equipment manufacturer(OEM), you are not allowed to alter or move it.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Does a forklift need to have a seat belt?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Yes. This has been a ANSI standard since 1993, although most of the major manufacturers have been outfitting their forklifts with seat belts well before that date. OSHA enforces the seat belt rule under general duty.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Do older forklifts need to be retrofitted with a seat belt if they didn’t come with one?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Yes, but if for some reason it is not possible, you must be able to show that you made every effort to comply with OSHA requirement to retrofit.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Does ForksMax sell parts for all material handling equipment?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Yes, ForksMax sells forklift parts for all makes and models.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”How long does it take to get a United Forklifts technician to come out to my location?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]United Forklifts will respond in five hours or less.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Why should I preform a PM on my electric pallet jack or electrical stackers?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Just like the larger forklifts, pallet jacks and electrical stackers have a manufactures list of scheduled maintenance that need to be done according to the manual.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][et_accordion_item title=”Which forklift is the most cost effective, electric or internal combustion?”][vc_column_text animation_delay=”0″]Overall, electric forklifts will have the lowest cost of ownership. They have fewer moving parts and therefore require lower maintenance requirements. They require no oil changes, tune ups, etc. The cost of charging electric forklift batteries is also less than fueling a LPG, Gasoline or diesel powered forklift.  However, electric forklifts have a higher investment up front because of the price of the industrial battery and charger.[/vc_column_text][/et_accordion_item][/et_accordion][et_gap height=”48″ element_id=”717507″ element_css=”.et-gap-717507 {height:48px;}”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
