Routine Servicing and Maintenance
Regular maintenance and care of your lift truck are not only important for economy and utilization reasons; it is essential for your safety. A faulty lift truck is a potential source of danger to the operator, and to other personnel working near it. As with all quality equipment, keep your lift truck in good operating condition by following the recommended schedule of maintenance.

Positioning Forks and Upright
When driving, with or without a load, it is good practice to have the forks slightly raised and tilt the upright (forks) backward. Having the forks raised and tilting back prevents the fork tips from catching on possible obstructions and reduces the wear on the fork blades from striking or dragging on the floor or ground. See the NOTICE and CAUTION below. Pull back on the lift control lever and raise the forks 6 to 8 inches (152 to 203 mm) above the floor. Then, using the tilt control, tilt the upright back slightly to raise the fork tips.
