The Lazy Man’s Guide to a Toyota Forklift Data Plate

Posted on

toyota forklift data plateI’ve visited plenty of customers who call their Toyota forklift a nickname like “Big Orange” or “The Boss” to be able to easily identify it from other forklifts in their fleet. These nicknames are great when communicating internally, but knowing and understanding your forklift’s model number will help you communicate more effectively with people externally, like your Toyota dealer or other company locations.

Every Forklift Fleet Management System Should Focus on These Four Things

Posted on

warehouse forklift fleet management infographicIn materials handling, telematics is the underlying technology that facilitates forklift fleet management systems. Although, it’s important to note that it doesn’t matter whether your forklift fleet consists of one truck or fifty, management systems can be incredibly useful and valuable.

If you’ve heard an anecdote beginning with, “Well, so-and-so said. . .” you are likely not alone. Part of our human nature means relying on our gut instincts and, while trusting your gut is something to be proud of, doing so isn’t always appropriate. Ensuring operational efficiency and the long-term value and ROI of capital equipment such as forklifts means having a good handle on how that equipment is being used within your operation. You may have a strong hunch about how equipment is being operated, but backing up that intuition with solid data is always the way to go! A vehicle management system (VMS) is a way to make sure you’re getting the right data to help you take firm, decisive action.

Trust me, I know how overwhelming data management can seem. And the data you’ll receive from a VMS like Toyota’s T-Matics Command or T-Matics Mobile can be overwhelming – unless you establish a few clear goals right from the beginning. Continue reading

Posted on

Despite their usefulness, forklift clamps are one of the most underappreciated attachments on the market. Day in and day out, they spend their time opening, closing, and sometimes swinging and rotating to get the job done. It really is a thankless job, isn’t it? Never appreciated for what they can do, but always put down the minute they start damaging product. But is it really their fault?

Well sometimes it is, but oftentimes it’s no fault of their own. These clamps are under a lot of pressure (both literally and figuratively). Each forklift comes with a fixed hydraulic pressure setting which affects how tightly your clamp is going to grip onto a particular load. Lucky for you, there are ways to adjust this pressure setting, and this article will help you find the right one for your application.
