Pre shift checks and battery charging

battery charger

Pallet trucks have quite low voltage traction batteries, some as low as 12 volts. It is important to maintain them properly.

Make sure that they are topped up correctly with either distilled or demineralised water and charge them when they get NO MORE than 80% discharged.

Comprehensive information about batteries is available here.

Please note that the checks shown here are incomplete since it depends upon the truck type in use. These trucks are in category A but there are eight sub divisions in this category. For more details see the pallet, pallet stacker operator's test. Details of these are shown here
