QUESTIONS TO BE PAID ATTENTION TO WHEN RENTING A FORKLIFT.
Carrying capacity. First of all, when ordering a loader, you need to know the weight of the load, which must be moved. Lifting capacity for forklifts is usually given when lifting at 3 meters, and the loading center is 500 mm. When choosing a forklift truck, it is necessary to take into account the dimensions of the cargo and the distribution of weight along the perimeter of the cargo, as well as the fact of a drop in the residual capacity when lifting more than 3 meters. To lift the long loader cargo should use long forks or extension forks. To increase the residual capacity, some models of forklifts are equipped with twin front wheels that contribute to greater stability of the loader.
Operating mode and operating conditions. In intensive operation, it is advisable to use a technique with internal combustion engines (diesel, gasoline, gas/gasoline), or with traction batteries, using several batteries. Indoors, when working with food, usually use electric or gas/gasoline equipment. On the street, usually, operate diesel or gasoline forklifts. In the cold season, it is not recommended to use electrical equipment when operating outside a heated room, because The temperature drop and low temperatures can disable the traction battery. When working indoors, where there is a possibility of puncturing tires (glass, construction debris) use a technique with solid wheels. When working on the street, more often used loaders with pneumatic tires, which protect the forklift suspension from increased loads. Important is the length of the route, the presence of ups and downs, ramps, descents, the width of the passage, the dimensions of the shelves, the presence of foreign objects above the passage (lamps, metal structures). Route analysis in conjunction with the operating conditions will tell you if you need other options that usually pay extra.
– When the loader is working in a container, the car. Wagon, or in a different room with height restrictions, use mast-free loaders for the possibility of processing the second tier.
– The lateral displacement of the carriage is used to ensure maneuverability and faster loading and unloading operations.
– Three-section mast is used for stacking to a height of 4.5 to 6 meters.
Selection of the manufacturer. The practice of using forklifts in rent showed that the most reliable and hardy equipment is made in Japan. Thus, the most suitable for US conditions are such brand of loaders as Toyota. This technology is widely available in the USA, whereby all consumables and spare parts for these trucks are always available from companies selling spare parts for loaders. In turn, this factor determines the speed of repair work if the breakdown occurred in the lease and the client needs to eliminate it within 1-2 hours.
Delivery of the loader. It is also important to organize the delivery of the loader. First of all, the delivery of the truck must be the responsibility of the company organizing the transportation of special equipment, which should be specified in the lease of equipment. As a rule, if the company forklift truck forklift organizes the delivery itself, then the acceptance of the equipment is carried out in the client’s warehouse and is fixed by signing the acceptance certificate on the client’s territory, which excludes the client’s responsibility for transportation. When ordering the loader, take into account that when transporting the loader, the height of the loader and vehicles should not exceed 4 meters. The place of unloading should be adapted for the evacuator (any territory on which it is difficult to unload the loader), or the onboard car (the presence of a landing stage or ramp).
