This YouTube video by Toyota Industrial Equipment talks about the most common parts that need replacement in forklift repairs.
Maintenance of your forklift is needed is important for operator safety. It’s also needed for operational productivity and efficiency.
As a result, it’s not if parts need to be replaced. It’s when they need to be swapped out.
If forklift repairs aren’t done in a timely manner the result is considerable downtime. This has been estimated as much as $3,000 per minute.
The power steering hoses and rubber parts are the most common replacements on an electric forklift. The reservoir tank and hydraulic hoses along with the wheel and master cylinder should be replaced for each 2,000 hours of operation.
The items listed for for electric forklift repairs also apply to those that run on an internal combustion (IC) engine. In other words, they’re gas powered. Here, the fuel hose must be replaced every two years or four thousand hours.
