Recondition Your Equipment

Maintain and Save: Forklift Care

With winter coming it’s a good time to begin preparing your fleet for the season. Our Service Department is prepared to give you all the help you need to maintain your fleet this year and beyond.

We all know a forklift works better when you maintain it, and purchasing new machines may be out of the budgets for companies, especially if more than one is needed. Our Parts and Service Department is composed of highly trained professionals with radio and GPS dispatched fleet of over 50 service technicians for when you want to leave the repairs to us. Over time, all machines break down and need repairs, but remember good used forklifts work every bit as well as new ones do and at a much lower price without sacrificing quality or choice. Let the KMH Parts & Service Team give you a FREE QUOTE to completely recondition your aging material handling equipment instead of buying new. In many cases we can fully recondition two for what you can expect to pay for one new one.

Used & Maintained Equals a Larger Fleet, Longer Service

Being able to have more than one operational forklift allows the user to alternate forklifts, which puts less wear on the machines, extending their life and your budget. Increased productivity increases the amount of work that can be done over the same period of time. More productivity means you are investing less and benefiting more.

Why Maintain?

  • Un-maintained forklifts overheat & fail
  • Un-maintained forklifts have sluggish performance
  • Un-maintained forklifts are susceptible to wheel slippage
  • Un-maintained forklifts are at risk of failing safety inspections

Forklift Operator Training

Benefits of Operator Training

There is a distinct difference between teaching someone safe forklift operation and truly training them how to perform the function safely and effectively. KMH gives the highest level of in-depth training for you and your operators in order to keep everyone safe and in alignment with all regulations.

Proper training will also lower your costs in terms of less damage to your products,to your facility, and to operator injury. We teach you how to see small maintenance issues and fixing them before become big ones. Knowing proper methods of operating a forklift also results in less wear and tear on your equipment. All of this results in equipment that stays in better condition for a longer period of time, an increase in useful life of your forklifts, and lower operating costs.

OSHA and ANSI have requirements regarding forklifts. Ultimately it is up to you, the employer, to see that your operators and fleet managers are aware of the regulations and that your company is in compliance.

Operators that receive ongoing training are more efficient at operating your forklifts. This efficiency translates into more productive employees. Improved morale and efficiency gained from training will increase how much work each of your operators can accomplish in a day, and that improves your bottom line.
These best practices decrease the likelihood of injuries to operators and damage to equipment and property.

When observing an operator using material handling equipment, ask the following:

  • Is the driver wearing a seat belt?
  • Is the operator driving at safe speeds?
  • Does the driver sound the horn when approaching blind spots, end of aisles or backing up?
  • When transporting a load, is the load 6” to 10” off of the floor?
  • Is the driver’s visibility blocked?
  • Does the operator use a spotter when the load is blocking his visibility?

Companies that do not emphasize safety and ongoing training of their drivers are easy to spot with this quick observation.

KMH continually strives to educate our customers about lift truck operation, safety, and industrial regulations for both ANSI and OSHA. With proper forklift training, you can reduce your downtime due to improper operation and provide effective timely maintenance/repair of your lift truck fleet. We provide a range of forklift training classes at progressive levels to meet your needs!

KMH has worked with every spaces of all shapes and sizes, and we can help you design the perfect system to fit your current and future needs. From systems that are taller than they are wider, to anything that will take up a very small amount of space. If you use forklifts in your facility we have a racking system to match your operation perfectly as well. Forklifts can move around with relative ease when your facility’s space is properly maximized. Pallet flow racking is also extremely cost effective when you consider how much product you can store in a given area.

At KMH We Help You Consider

  • Cost of materials and installation
  • Placement of building doors and columns
  • Storage design
  • Floor space and building height
  • Desired storage density

There are many varieties of pallet racking, and all types allow for the storage of palletized materials in horizontal rows with multiple levels. Forklift trucks are usually required to place the loaded pallets onto the racks for storage. Always ensure that the proper equipment is being used for the moving any pallets off and onto your new racking system.

Different kinds of lift equipment, and sometimes even inventory, call for different layouts. At KMH we carefully work with you to be sure you are investing the optimized racking system for your operation. As an example, movable pallet rack systems operate on mobile carriages that eliminate unused aisle space and can nearly double you storage capacity. Flexible and adaptable, movable systems work within almost any building support or ceiling restrictions and can be reconfigured easily if needs change.

Storing more in less space is the key to efficiency.
Careful pre-planning by KMH will save you money, & maximize your racking investment.

Warehouse Automation

The Ultimate In Warehouse Technology

Choosing which technology should be applied to your warehouse can be a challenge because the quoted performance of any system is dependent upon many specific factors. KMH assists you in successfully applying warehouse technology that improves accuracy, business performance and ultimately profit. The ultimate objective when implementing new technology is to reach your financial and production goals. Our team will help you choose which technology works best for your company.

Common successful techniques that increase productivity in material handling are wireless technology, voice directed picking, pick-to-light, RFID and slotting. These solutions have been widely adopted in fulfillment operations with varying degrees of success.

Some of the ways KMH can help increase your ROI:

Pick-to-Light

Pick-to-Light

Faster order processing time with increased accuracy. A display indicates the quantity to be picked and the picker confirms the completion by pressing a pick-complete button adjacent to the light on the display.

RFID

RFID

Increase warehouse efficiency by reducing labor and logistic costs by broadcasting a signal with information about the product they are attached to and about the location of the product in the warehouse. RFID offers better control and management of your inventory.

Voice Directed Picking

Voice Directed Picking

Helping associates work hands free, eliminate distractions from having to use a computer or paper picking list, people can speak a location and product code to confirm he or she is picking from the correct location. Using voice technology incorrect picking and other errors can be reduced by 80 percent or more.

Slotting

Slotting

Correct slotting maximizes space, and ensures items are placed in properly sized locations. The issue of slotting affects the two largest labor costs: picking and replenishment. Usually 20% of active products account for 80% of all picking activity. These top-moving products should be located in the most ergonomic locations and in storage equipment that has been optimally sized. The return on investment for slotting is typically less than one year.
