Prepare yourself and your equipment because Old Man Winter is coming. Don’t let the wintry weather freeze your operations. It is important to winterize your forklifts and other material handling equipment to make sure your fleet is ready to thaw the freeze. Winter is a peak time for productivity for many businesses. So why risk avoidable equipment breakdowns and lost productivity when you can prevent them?
Winter weather can and will wreak havoc on your forklift fleet if precautions are not taken. Winters are harsh on forklifts and operators, but when proper preparation and maintenance is performed your business will profit from unnecessary mechanical failures and lost production.
