How to evaluate the performance of the forklift

  • 2022-11-22

With the increase of market transparency and the strengthening of the brand building of various forklift manufacturers, the procurement behavior of enterprises will become more rational, and both enterprises and forklift suppliers will tend to pursue a win-win situation and establish long-term, mutual trust and cooperative relations. For companies that have not yet used forklifts and have a large amount of material handling, it may be necessary to compare the cost and comprehensive benefits of manual handling and forklift handling. Now the price, type and function of forklifts have changed greatly, and there are often better than manual handling. choose. In the comprehensive evaluation, many companies often cannot make a reasonable judgment on the product quality because they do not understand the professional knowledge and technology of forklift trucks. Generally speaking, the superior performance of high-quality forklifts is often reflected in many aspects such as high efficiency, low cost, high reliability, good ergonomic design and convenient service. So how to evaluate the performance of a forklift?

1. High efficiency of forklifts

The high efficiency of a forklift does not just mean high speed, it also means that the operator needs to complete a work cycle in a short time, and can maintain this efficiency throughout the working time. Many factors can contribute to increased efficiency:

①The level of speed, such as driving speed, lifting and lowering speed, etc.;

②The application of ergonomic design reduces the number of operations;

③ The accuracy of the operation;

④ Application of ergonomic design to minimize fatigue;

⑤ good vision;

2. Low cost of forklifts

When an enterprise purchases and uses a forklift, the total annual cost includes: ① purchase cost; ② maintenance cost; ③ energy consumption cost; ④ labor cost;

Purchasing costs will be spread over the life of the forklift. Therefore, high-priced forklifts will reduce the purchase cost due to their longer life. Actual repair costs are not only related to the cost of repairing parts, but also to failure rates or downtime. Therefore, a high-quality forklift has lower maintenance costs due to its lower failure rate. The cost of energy consumption will vary with forklifts with different powertrains, such as electricity, diesel, LPG or gasoline. The labor cost varies with the number of drivers and their total monthly salary, and the number of drivers will be reduced by adopting high-efficiency hifoune forklifts.

3. High safety of forklifts

The safety design of the forklift should be able to fully guarantee the safety of the driver, the goods and the forklift itself. High-quality forklifts are often designed with safety in mind to every detail and every possibility.

4. Ergonomics of forklifts

Ergonomics is a science that is widely used in product design, especially improving the operating environment. The purpose is to maximize production efficiency by reducing driver fatigue and increasing operator comfort. In forklift design, ergonomics are reflected in all aspects:

①Reduce the fatigue of the driver during operation: the unique design can reduce the driver's operation action and make the operation more labor-saving;

②Comfort: The humanized design can keep the driver in a good mood and reduce operating errors

③Good vision: Provide a good vision for the forklift operation process, which can not only improve the efficiency, but also ensure the safety of the driver.

5. Easy to maintain

Consider whether the forklift is easy to maintain. All parts should be easily replaced, and the diagnosis and elimination of faults should be fast. The control systems of high-quality forklifts have been modularized and can be directly connected to a laptop computer, using diagnostic programs to quickly find faults or modify parameter settings (such as travel speed).

Before purchasing a forklift, in addition to understanding the price and tonnage of the forklift, an enterprise should also make a purchasing decision based on the specific working conditions and development plan of the enterprise, and comprehensively consider the strength, reputation, service guarantee and other factors of the forklift manufacturer. In addition to providing reliable after-sales service, a strong forklift supplier should have professional knowledge and help customers complete the selection of models and configurations.
