How to store a forklift

We’ve already taken a took at how to store a forklift for a short period of time, But sometimes you might need to store your forklift for longer than 6 months.  So we wanted to help give some instruction for Long Term Storage of your forklift.

6 Months – Long–Term Storage

If you are looking to store your forklift, make sure you do the following steps to prepare the forklift for storage for 6 months or longer:

  1. Make sure you complete all the short–term storage procedures.
  1. Wrap or cover all exterior lights, radiator grille, and air vents with a moisture barrier cover. Use tape to hold the covers in position.
  1. Make sure you remove the batteries from the forklift. Just make sure you store the batteries in an approved space. Be sure to follow whatever your local regulations are. Batteries that are stored for long periods can become damaged so we recommend that you try to use the batteries elsewhere if you can .
  1. Also spray exterior surfaces and the frame with a preservative coating.

Following the above steps will help you preserve your forklift and help keep its value.
