Planned Maintenance: Invest in Your New Forklifts

Posted on

When you purchase a planned maintenance plan, you’ll pay a monthly fee to have your forklift serviced at every planned maintenance interval. Replacement parts and additional fixes are not included. … The first cost reduction you’ll see with a maintenance plan will be in downtime.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have even one thing about your job made easy? One area where …

  • You rarely (if ever) encounter unexpected downtime due to a repair emergency.
  • You have the luxury of being able to plan “workarounds” ahead of time because you know well in advance what’s happening and when.
  • You have peace of mind that, should you need a last-minute repair, a dedicated partner will have your back and keep your business moving.

Investing in a maintenance plan can make this dream-like scenario a reality for you in your operation’s equipment maintenance and repairs.

Too often, forklift manufacturers are unable or unwilling to provide the type of care and maintenance that can make fleet management easy. With Toyota, we’re dedicated to being your full-life material handling partner – long after the sale of a new forklift. Here’s what you need to know if you’re considering a maintenance plan, like Toyota 360 Support Plus.

What is Planned Maintenance — and How Can It Help You?

A maintenance plan is exactly what it sounds like: a way for you to plan any necessary, routine maintenance when it’s convenient to you and your business.

This affords you the opportunity to run the show on your own timetable — orchestrating maintenance on a tailor-made schedule so you can optimize workload and keep things moving. As an added bonus, having your forklifts regularly serviced also extends the longevity of your equipment and makes the need for unexpected emergency repairs far less likely.

Best of all? Agreeing to a maintenance plan up front can often SAVE you money on the cost of maintenance and repairs you would need to have done anyway — not to mention the cost of downtime you might encounter with a more “reactive” approach to maintenance.

Forklift Fleets, 7 Really Simple Things You Can Do To Optimize It

Posted on

toyota forklift fleetToday’s demands tell us that forklift fleet management systems have to do more with less. Job reductions make the headlines, but thinner budgets, productivity pressure and an increased demand for action create just as much havoc as downsizing middle managers and supervisors.

In today’s economic environment, it is more critical than ever to shine a spotlight on your highest cost centers and evaluate readily achievable savings opportunities without sacrificing quality or productivity. Every day your business is paying significant amounts of money to own and operate your forklift fleet. The cost for each truck can be over $250,000 per year – inclusive of operator salaries, benefits, overtime, truck leases, maintenance, damage, and battery/fuel expense. For a 50 vehicle fleet, that multiplies to over $12.5 million per year! Continue reading

Lift Truck Maintenance: Changing Currents and Approach

Posted on

toyota standup ac power forklift truckBeginning about 10 years or so ago, lift truck manufacturers started replacing DC motors and controllers with AC motors in electric lift trucks. The benefits of brushless motors and regenerative braking reduced maintenance costs by as much as $350 in parts alone each year and cut 45 minutes from the previous two-hour length of a planned maintenance (PM) event. An added benefit is the ability of AC motors to provide more access to data about the equipment’s condition, a capability that has become increasingly important as fleet maintenance solutions become more detail-oriented.

A New Focus on Forklift Truck Maintenance

Posted on

forklift fleet management charts and deskAs a discipline, forklift truck maintenance has developed at an impressive rate in recent years. Telematics and data collection technologies, enhanced equipment reliability, and an economic recession aided this swift transition and brought the industry’s chronic waste into sharp focus. Skimping on repairs and rotation is a great way to increase costs, not curb them.

Of course, plenty of fleets are still treated as mere costs of doing business. In those cases, the emphasis on execution rather than excellence results in organizations pouring virtually unlimited funds into equipment. Continue reading
