Start the engine, run back and forth, operate, control all functions, listen to the sound of the car, if you see any part with abnormal sounds, hissing, howling…. Then pay special attention to it. If that part is in an important form such as the engine, hydraulic ben, lifting mechanism, etc., it means that this old forklift is already sick. We quickly come to a decision.

Let the vehicle operate with a load of about 1/2 of the specified load, lift it and keep it in a suspended position a few tens of centimeters above the ground, turn off the engine! After 5 minutes, measure the height again to see how much it has dropped, a few centimeters is acceptable, but up to 10cm there is a problem with ben.

Ask the operator where the air outlet of the oil system is located, then let it operate for about 10 minutes and then check if the oil is bubbling at the air outlet (Make sure the air is completely drained before) if so. ie the system is not closed.

The oil pump is the heart of the forklift, the card pump or the gear pump are available, the gear pump is durable and seems to be more suitable for Vietnam, the pump shaft is a common place to open, need to see if it’s dry. or wet with oil, having an oil pressure gauge is best.

For the forklift truck to suddenly and heavy load, see if the automatic throttle mechanism is good, when lifting, if it jerks up, there is a problem.

The lifting piston neck must be dry, not scratched

Lift chain (If any) must not be loose, lower it to check

See if the front tire is still good

Fork lifts, lifts must absolutely not have welds
