Understand Load Balancing

Having a good understanding of load balancing is not only important to ensure safety when using your forklift, but it is also a necessary skill to enhance your productivity. Having a forklift tip, or drop its load due to incorrect balancing is going to lead to tasks taking a lot longer than they should, decreasing productivity. It is surprisingly common for operators to not be provided sufficient training regarding load balancing, and the dangers presented when a forklift is beyond its load capacity.

This is why we often recommend our clients to hire one of our highly experienced operators along with their machine hire. This allows you to rest assured that you will be getting the most out of your forklift hire without compromising safety. If you have a forklift of your own, we definitely recommend learning about load balancing and undertake the necessary training.

If you are planning to hire a forklift, our team will happily help make sure you select the right forklift for you. Get in touch to prevent any load-balancing issues.

Make the Most of your Space with Precision Manoeuvring

It is a common misconception that driving a forklift can be comparable to driving a car. This is far from the truth, with forklifts having some very noticeable differences that help it manoeuvre in smaller spaces. Ensuring that your operator is trained up to drive your forklift correctly is the most influential way to enhance productivity.

One main aspect of a forklift's design is the rear wheel steering. This tool allows the vehicle to make very sharp turns and manoeuvre with high precision, making it so useful in places like warehouses. With every inch of space being valuable, ensuring you have an operator that is able to use this to their advantage will highly increase your productivity.

How Forklifts Can Save you Time and Money

Forklifts can save you time and money in a variety of ways, from moving heavy loads quickly to the versatility a forklift can have with the right attachments. Moving heavy loads easily and efficiently is one of the most common benefits of a forklift. Reducing the need to put your staff in a dangerous situation as well as having the potential to reduce labour costs altogether.

Attachments can often be an overlooked feature of forklifts, however this is what can save you the most time. Having the right attachments for a forklift can mean that it can become versatile and remove the need for other machines. Whether it's having a cage that can transport workers to different areas of the job-site safely, or attaching a lifting hook that can lift materials weighing up to 5 ton.

The amount in which you can enhance productivity with attachments is undeniable. We highly recommend taking a look at the attachments you can hire along with your forklift at Tiger Plant.
