Onsite maintenance of forklift batteries by operators is a very important process. To operate properly, the power systems of the forklift must be getting all of the power they need. That means your batteries must be in good condition.
These “routine” tasks are critical. If there are power problems, your forklift can become a real liability. The forklift may stall, fail to lift, or seize up in the middle of a job. That can mean danger to operators, risks to loads, and a very irritating range of fixes to deal with something that should never really have happened at all. Today, we’re looking into useful accessories to maintain your forklift battery.
Types of Forklift Battery Accessories
The accessories used for forklift maintenance include two must-haves:
Single Point Watering Kits
These are invaluable for managing the electrolyte levels in forklift batteries. They operate systematically, managing levels for each battery in your forklift. They’re a good, “no mistakes” way of managing battery levels very efficiently. They also make sure that every battery is properly maintained.
Modern watering guns are pressurised, flow-regulated and connected to the mains supply. The latest watering guns monitor electrolyte levels and signal when supply is low. These watering guns even tell you not to overfill, saving a lot of time and effort. It ensures built-in quality control on maintenance, a good value outcome for big batteries which need to be in top condition.
Where Do You Source Forklift Battery Accessories?
The best place to source your accessories is a specialist forklift battery service. With all due respect to other battery suppliers, forklift batteries are not the same thing. Modern forklifts use huge amounts of power and their batteries are often far more complex.
Your forklift battery specialists will know your machine type, know what sort of accessories it needs for service and be able to help with any battery issues. Most importantly, they can help with practical solutions for battery maintenance at all levels.
One of the big issues with onsite battery maintenance is that operators can only do so much. Sometimes, the maintenance issues aren’t routine; they’re real risks. If your operators have encountered battery problems or “repeat offenders” in your batteries, the experts can deliver the solutions along with your new accessories. Your accessories, in fact, may be the solutions you need, but it’s best to check out any issues before you get serious trouble from your batteries.
