The main purpose of an electric forklifts is to transport goods, but before transporting goods, operators must pay attention to many aspects, such as the placement of goods when loading and unloading. We all know that if there is a problem with the placement of goods, it will become evident. But in addition, the staff should pay attention to many aspects. 

When the electric storage forklift is in operation, no one is allowed to stand on the forklift. Moreover, when using a fork to fork the goods, the driver should pay attention that the fork tip should not touch other goods or objects, so as to avoid damage to the goods. The correct opening method should be to fork the forks as deep as possible under the goods, and then adjust the distance between the two forks to load the goods according to the requirements, so that the load of the two forks is balanced and should not be skewed.
Generally, there are two types of side shifters configured on forklift trucks. One side shift device is integrated with the fork frame (that is, an integral type), and the sliding device is a guide column type, that is, a sleeve is added to the fixed shaft. The sleeve and the side shifting frame are welded together to slide back and forth on the fixed shaft together. Sideshift cylinders are also single-acting cylinders only. The other side shifter is a split type, the structure of the side shifter is simple, and the installation and maintenance are convenient. When installing, just hang the side shifter on the existing standard fork frame and it can be used. If the side shifter fails, just remove it and hang the fork on the standard fork frame, and the forklift can be used as usual. The side shifter allows the left and right lateral side shifts of the goods on the fork to be generally divided into 50mm, 100mm and 150mm, which facilitates the insertion and stacking of goods, greatly improves the flexibility and handling efficiency of the forklift, and is suitable for forklift handling and stacking in various workplaces.

Even in winter, many projects are in a hurry, and the construction speed will not slow down as the temperature drops. So what should be paid attention to when using forklifts in low temperature conditions?

1. Before entering the cold-proof period, do season-changing maintenance work in advance. Use cold-zone lubricating oil for all relevant parts of the engine and chassis, and accelerate slowly in the early stage of operation.
2. When a cold engine is started, due to the high viscosity of the oil and poor fluidity, the lubricating oil film between the moving parts is insufficient, and semi-liquid friction or even dry friction occurs after starting. At the same time, due to the low temperature, the gasoline cannot be fully burned, diluting the lubricating oil on the cylinder wall, reducing the lubricating efficiency of the lubricating oil, aggravating the wear of the engine parts, and shortening the service life of the engine. Therefore, in the case of poor heating conditions in the severe cold season, preheating should be carried out, and the method of adding hot water is generally used to increase the temperature of the engine.
3. Clean the gasoline tank, gasoline filter, carburetor, hydraulic tank, etc. frequently to prevent water from freezing.
4. For forklifts stored in the open air, the coolant should be drained or antifreeze should be added to avoid freezing cracking of the engine.
5. It is forbidden to make sharp turns and brake suddenly when the forklift is driving. When driving on slopes or working on site in ice and snowy weather, anti-skid measures such as bedding furnace ash and grass should be taken.
6. During the operation of the forklift, various measures should be taken to maintain the normal working temperature of the engine.
