Heyn's Top Tips for Rain Proofing Your Forklift Truck

    Forklift 30/11/2021

    Forklift productivity can take a bit of a downturn at this time of year with the poor weather conditions.  Avoid unneccessary downtime by preparing your forklift for the rain and snow.

    Here are some top tips to help you prepare:
    1. Ensure Maximum Visibility for your truck - Test your horn and your lights to ensure they are both working.  Perhaps invest in some additional lighting if required for the darker evenings.
    2.  Cover Your Forklift  - Use lightweight covers to protect your truck from the elements.  These affordable covers help to minimise any productivity issues and malfunctions within the truck caused by the extreme weather. 
    3. Invest in a Weather Proof Cab - Cabs are available to fit your existing fleet.  They are made from a lightweight construction and are built to withstand most weather conditions. 
    4. Operate Your Forklift Safely - Ensure all staff are adequately trained and give them a refresher if required.  Drive slowly and maintain a clear line of sight at all times.  

    Heyn Forklift Solutions stock all of the products mentioned so please do not hesitate to get in touch to discuss your requirements for rain-proofing your fleet.   You can also sign up for a FREE Winter Service Check on your fleet HERE.
