Forklift Service Programs

A typical lift truck has hundreds of moving parts that can wear to the point of failure if they are not lubricated, adjusted, or replaced on a regular basis. The Yale Tough Test 200 Point Inspection program is designed to expose those neglected areas of your lift truck to help ensure you get the life expectancy out of your forklift.

A well maintained lift truck fleet can help improve the productivity of your material handling operations. From years of experience, we have found our best maintenance practices can make your forklifts more productive through the reduction of unscheduled downtime. By committing to a maintenance schedule recommended by the professional staff at our Kansas shops, and performed by our skilled technicians, you can be assured that your fleet is in good hands.

How would you like to have a fixed, monthly billing program for OM services? With our budget OM program, you can be assured of no spikes in your Operational Maintenance cost for the year. Our Budget OM program is available for all makes of lift trucks.

Reduce unscheduled forklift downtime and extend the life of major assemblies in your lift truck with our Fluid Analysis Service. By having your lift trucks’ fluids analyzed periodically, we can discover early warning signs of accelerated component wear and help reduce unforeseen, expensive repair costs.

We have found that regularly scheduled inspections of forklifts can help reduce unscheduled downtime. Our experienced personnel have the necessary gauges on hand to measure wear that can occur with forks, tires, and load chains. Ask about how our Fork, Tire and Chain inspection programs here in KS can help keep your life trucks operating safely and productively.

  • Fundamentals of Safe Operation
  • Operator Responsibility
  • Operating Environments
  • Characteristics of Lift Trucks
  • Data Plates
  • Load Centers

  • And much more…
