Forklift batteries

When selecting a battery, it is important to know the available size of the battery compartment, counter weight requirements, recommended amp hour capacity and the voltage of the lift truck. Other considerations include the number of shifts for your operation as well as the energy needed to fulfil a shift. Some of these questions aren’t easily answered without the help of an expert. We recommend an energy study to help with the recommendation of the correct battery type for your facility. Contact us for more information.

Battery watering systems

Monitoring the water level of your batteries and maintaining consistent levels is one of the most important requirements of proper battery care. Water evaporates at higher rates in the summer months or in high usage operations, so watering intervals are not the same for every facility. Utilizing a watering system can help ensure proper watering since the valves will only open to allow water through if water is low and will shut-off when they have reached the proper level. A watering system does not eliminate the need for periodic water level inspection, but they certainly provide a huge reduction in the cost of labor to water your batteries.
