Daewoo Counterbalance Forklifts

Operating a Regular Counterbalance lift truck
1 Prior to utilizing the machine, perform a pre-shift inspection. OSHA guidelines do state that pre-shift checklists need to be carried out each day or each shift. Each and every different equipment along with its attachments has its own checklist listing steering, brakes, lights, emergency brakes, controls, horn and safety features.

2 Start up the machine and check controls. First ensure your seatbelt is fastened and the seat is securely in place and adjusted for your comfort. Look under the machine after you move it for any signs of leaks. The operation of each type of forklift is different.

3 The basic operation of a vehicle is really compared to a regular motor vehicle. The lift truck has a rear end swing of the lift truck occurs because the truck steers with its rear wheels. Forgetting this information is a main cause of injuries and accidents to employees. The almost 90-degree turn from the front wheels should be done with utmost caution. These top-heavy equipment have a high center of gravity even without a load. When lifting or moving a load this top-heaviness is exacerbated.

4 Keep forks close to the ground when traveling. Use care when approaching loads. Be sure the forks line up correctly with the pallet. Lift the load only as high as is needed, tilting it back to help stabilize the machine. Only drive backwards if the load is so big that it obstructs driver vision.

5 Prior to unloading and loading, check the wheels on trailers/trucks. When carrying a load, it is not advised to travel on inclines. The equipment could tip over on a slope. When driving on an incline is necessary, always drive up the slope and back down. The load must be kept on the uphill side of the truck.

6 The lift truck driver must always be in firm control all the time. Tipping over is the primary cause of operator injuries. The operator should never try to jump out of the truck in case of a tip-over. The safest way is to lean away from the direction of fall while holding the steering wheel and bracing your feet.
