Which Steps Must Be Done At Least Daily Before Using A Forklift?

If you are wondering what steps need to be taken daily before making use of photographs then this article has got you covered with the details. You will not agree more that a great amount of stress goes into the operation of a Forklift and that is why you need to check it for maximum efficiency and safety.

Maintenance of tires in c series forklifts

Before operating the c series forklifts, you need to ensure that tires are inflated. They must be checked against any deep cuts or wear. Apart from tires, other warning devices must also be checked like lights. To ensure maximum safety you need to not only check the headlights but also different forms of light like tail lights, and working lights, etc. Devices like horns must also be checked for ensuring maximum safety.

Overhead guard

You might be already aware that c series forklifts are designed in such a way to ensure maximum safety. They are certain devices that are already present to prevent injury and one such device is an overhead guard. In order to state that overhead god is working optimally, search for the cracks before hopping onto the wheel. If you find none then you are good to go.


You might be already aware that forks are present in the c series forklifts for holding cargo and lifting it. You need to check whether your forks are bent or worn. By checking this area, you can prevent dangerous accidents. Ensure that no tracks are present, latches are in good condition, and carriage teeth are unworn.


These are the restraint devices vital for ensuring your safety thus make sure that they are not damaged in any way.


You need to make sure that the foot brakes are working properly. You can simply check it by pressing it and noticing any sort of smooth activity. If they are stopping smoothly then you are good to go. Similarly, you need to take care of the parking brake and its smooth function can be checked by seeing if it holds against slight acceleration. Another brake which you have to check is the dead man brake. You can simply check this by rising from the seat and seeing if it holds.

Check fluid levels in c series forklifts

This goes without saying but you need to check your fluid level before starting the c series forklifts. There are several levels to check like fuel oil, radiator coolant level, and hydraulic level. There is one thing which you need to keep in mind before checking out the levels and it has to do with the surface on which a forklift is stationed. To get accurate and correct readings make sure that the surface is completely flat and even.

Power and fuel sources

Bear in mind that fuel sources are different from the fluid levels and that is why you also need to check the fuel source is present within. Ensure that gas or diesel level is optimum if your Forklift is LPG. But if you own a Forklift which is battery powered then check for the electrolyte level present before operating the vehicle.

The F-TYPE Coupe visual message is defined by three key ‘heart lines’, that visual message beginning with the formidable grille. It is from the twin ‘shark gill’ openings that sit either side of the grille that the essential first heart line – which mirrors the design of the F-TYPE Convertible – flows and begins to take shape. Running up through the headlamp, and accentuated by the LED ‘J blade’ signature running lamps, the line then arcs up over the front wheel arch before dropping elegantly as it runs through the door, washing out into the muscular rear haunch.
