How Often Should I Schedule Maintenance and Repair Services? 

Your fleet’s maintenance needs depend on how frequently you use each piece of equipment and the conditions in which you run it. Older vehicles and those operating in dusty, grimy conditions require maintenance more often. 

Manufacturers recommend maintenance intervals according to operating hours. Check with your vehicle’s manufacturer for exact recommendations.

Generally, maintenance tasks like oil changes, ignition timing adjustments, chassis component lubrication and spark plug inspection should occur after 200 hours of use. More involved tasks like hydraulic filter replacement, radiator cleaning, chassis link adjustment and brake inspection should occur after 600 hours. 

Enter into a maintenance contract with Fitzgerald Equipment to ensure that each vehicle in your fleet receives the attention it needs when it needs it.  

Why Is Regular Maintenance Important?

Scheduling regular equipment maintenance and making the necessary repairs to your investments will benefit your organization in numerous ways: 

  • Productivity: Ensure your forklifts operate at full capacity so your crew can work efficiently. 
  • Financial savings: Preserve your equipment’s health and fix any issues before they worsen to avoid costly replacement expenses and minimize downtime. 
  • Safety: Maintain a safe working environment by preventing breakdowns and inefficiencies that could cause dangerous incidents. 
  • Loss prevention: Operate vehicles with confidence that they can handle heavy loads and safely transport products between destinations.
