Helpful tips for forklift battery charger maintenance:

Computer controlled systems give your forklift battery improved functionality, but they also add a layer of complexity to maintenance. Because this part of the battery is so complex, many forklift operators think a broken control board requires a total replacement. Our skilled technicians troubleshoot to find the exact source of a problem, and only replace the components that are broken.
Designate an area for battery charging that’s out of the way from high-traffic parts of your facility. The only employees who should charge the battery are those who have received training on the proper procedure. These employees should always double-check to ensure that the battery’s voltage/amperage matches that of the charger. Only add water to the battery once charging is complete.


Atlas Toyota is your destination for all forklift and industrial equipment battery accessories. We carry battery handling systems and battery pullers along with battery parts like vent caps, gauges, spill stations and eye wash stations.
