9 Forklift Winterization Tips by G&W Equipment

9 Forklift Winterization Tips by G&W Equipment
Winters can be harsh on your forklifts and operators, but proper preparation and maintenance can position your business for a profitable season. Follow these nine forklift winterization tips to help ensure longer uptime during the months ahead.

1. Cold weather is hard on batteries. 

Have the battery and charging system checked for optimum performance.

2. Clean, flush and put new antifreeze in the cooling system.

As a general rule of thumb, this should be done every year.

3. Check the tire tread depth and tire pressure.

If snow and ice are a problem in your area, consider special tires designed to grip slick roads. During winter, tire pressure should be checked weekly.

4. Be diligent about changing the oil and filter at recommended intervals.

Dirty oil can spell trouble in winter. Consider changing to “winter weight” oil if you live in a cold climate.

5. Check critical components and fluids.

Have your technician check the fuel, air, hydraulic and transmission filters at the same time.

6. If you’re due for a tune-up, have it done before winter sets in.

Winter magnifies existing problems such as pings, hard starts, sluggish performance or rough idling.

7. Have the brakes checked.

Confirm that the lift truck’s braking system is working properly.

8. Have the exhaust system checked for carbon monoxide leaks.

Monoxide leaks can be especially dangerous during cold weather while stored inside buildings.

9. Check all warning lights, work lights and tail lights to ensure they are operating properly.

Ethics Across The Gaming Industry

ETHICS ACROSS THE GAMING INDUSTRY by Glenn E. Wichinsky and Keith C. Miller

All American law schools require a course called something like “Legal Ethics.” The class typically focuses on the Model Rules of Professional Conduct for practicing attorneys and helps students prepare for one part of the bar examination process, the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE). The MPRE is a sixty-question, two-hour, multiple-choice examination that is designed “to measure the examinee’s knowledge and understanding of established standards related to a lawyer’s professional conduct.” As the administrators of the MPRE openly acknowledge, the “MPRE is not a test to determine an individual’s personal ethical values.” Rather, the test is “based on the law governing the conduct of lawyers.”

While it is understandable that law schools may emphasize the Model Rules of Professional Conduct for their students, this vision of ethics is far too narrow for those involved in the gaming industry. Given the range of careers in gaming, it is important to recognize that in addition to rules of ethics for lawyers, there is an ethic that informs many aspects of the gaming industry. This ethic often is not codified by law but is functionally affected by one’s role in the industry. Whatever one’s role might be, careful attention to values of fairness, balance, and morality helps to foster a more positive image of the industry as a form of regulated entertainment. This image is in marked contrast to the one that previously associated gaming with organized crime and unsavory individuals, and where questions as to the basic immorality of gambling were prominent. Ultimately, the “personal ethical values” of all in the gaming industry are tested and judged by society. This article will address a few of the settings where how we discharge our responsibilities plays a critical role in how our industry is perceived.

The Manufacturer
The first situation we consider involves a manufacturer of gaming hardware, that is, the cabinet that a game board is integrated into in order to create the completed gaming device. In some instances the gaming hardware manufacturer may design and manufacture the gaming cabinets and market the content of the customer’s game contained inside the cabinet. By integrating the games into the cabinets and displaying them at gaming expositions, the manufacturer may give added exposure to the customer’s game and help increase the market audience. This exposure redounds to the benefit of the hardware manufacturer as well if it causes the customer to order additional products from the manufacturer.

Does the gaming cabinet manufacturer in this situation have ethical obligations? To whom would they be owed? Even in the absence of specific statutes or regulations as to what game content may be publicly displayed, a manufacturer would have an ethical obligation not to display game content that might be attractive to an under-age audience. Along the same lines, what about game content that displayed matching symbols of partially clothed men or women as a primary game, with a secondary game involving animated rabbits? Though the manufacturer may not be prohibited from displaying this content, it might well conclude as a matter of ethics and standards of decency that such content was sexist and cast men or women in a bad light.

Also, a cabinet manufacturer will likely be applying the proprietary designs of several of its customers in the manufacturing process. While these designs are subject to intellectual property and patent protections, a scrupulous and ethical manufacturer will take steps to maintain the confidentiality of this information. For example, work will be segregated by customer, and access to the factory manufacturing floor will be carefully limited. Advanced scheduling of visits to the factory, a log which documents the company or entity that a visitor represents, and maintenance of overall security are steps reflecting an awareness of the critical role of ethics and confidentiality in the manufacturing process.

The Casino
The second setting for observing an ethic that informs gaming involves the casino itself. The goal of a casino owner and operator is to attract customers to and maintain their interest in the casino’s gaming machines and table games. Each game on the floor of a bricks and mortar casino must maintain a certain level of profit. This is based upon the win per day, per unit, and meeting or exceeding what is referred to as the “house average.” A profitable casino is one that attracts customers, offers games that have “player appeal,” and has a management team that develops and executes a good marketing plan, and makes intelligent line item budget decisions.

Where do ethics enter the decision-making process of casino owners and operators? The pursuit of the business objective—to create a financially successful and profitable casino enterprise, and provide partners and investors a reasonable return on their investment—needs to be balanced by concerns about taking advantage of vulnerable players. Vulnerable players are those who are inclined to spend more money gambling than their reasonable discretionary entertainment budget can support.

One specific example of the interests that need to be weighed in this situation concerns the placement of automatic teller machines (ATM) on the casino floor. From an operations point of view, the ATM provides a quick means for players to access cash from their personal bank accounts in order to play in the casino. The surcharge on each transaction becomes another income stream to the casino, an income stream that is a function of whether the ATM is owned by the casino, is leased, or is vendor operated.

From an ethical perspective, however, some casino operators might conclude that placement of an ATM on the casino floor provides too strong of an inducement for a player to gamble beyond his means. Locating the ATM off the casino floor gives a player an opportunity to reflect before withdrawing more cash to gamble. While this may be regarded as inconvenient to, and by, the player, it is a measured step to blunt the momentum that often accompanies excessive, that is, “problem” gambling. Some might argue that this is a vain effort to protect the player against himself. But it also reflects a process of making business judgments in a considered manner with ethical concerns being put in the balance.

Such judgments are also made by regulators. Current technology exists which would provide connectivity between a specific gaming device and a player’s personal credit or debit card. But regulators are properly concerned that this provides too ready a means for problem gamblers to access their funds. All members of the gaming industry are concerned about problem gambling. Some of the concern relates to a fear that problem gambling damages the industry’s image and can lead to oppressive regulation. But this does not detract from the fact that ethical considerations should be a conscious part of the decision-making process for all people in the gaming industry.

Where do ethics enter the decision-making process of casino owners and operators?The Promoters
Another issue that broadly implicates ethics in gaming relates to the promotion of legislation that would create or expand gaming in a jurisdiction. Those in the gaming industry need to be sensitive to concerns of how pervasive gaming activities should be in a community. For example, questions of geographic separation and concentration are the subject of legislative and regulatory actions often initiated by those seeking to develop casino properties. There is an important balance to strike in providing attractive opportunities for business operators and investors, but in such a way that lessens the overall impact on the community. This can include measures such as zoning ordinances that restrict billboard placement of advertising for gaming operations and location restrictions connected to the proximity to a school, church or synagogue. These actions need to be grounded on, among other factors, an ethic of concern for the overall well-being of the community. A responsible and measured approach that acknowledges these considerations will still permit the industry to expand and flourish.

The Compliance Committee Member
Finally, membership on a gaming compliance committee implicates a number of ethical obligations. A person may learn of sensitive information pertaining to the company’s internal or financial operations that cannot be disclosed to anyone outside the compliance committee. The obligation one owes as an attorney or as a business executive to maintain a high standard of ethics and to maintain the confidentiality of sensitive company information is paramount in maintaining the confidential interests of the parties involved.

Conclusion
A focus on an ethic of responsibility and balance by those in the gaming industry is not only the “right thing to do,” it will enhance the public’s perception of the industry. Rather than being an impediment to the gaming industry, this attention to ethics will promote a more durable, trusted, and yes, profitable enterprise.

The Benefits of Renting a Forklift from G&W

G&W Equipment, Inc., is a locally owned and operated lift truck & material handling company in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia. G&W Equipment is an authorized dealer for Cat Lift Trucks, Mitsubishi Forklifts and Jungheinrich forklifts

Flexibility is critical for businesses and renting forklifts can be a surprisingly easy way to cut costs on a short-term basis. However, to maximize the benefits you can gain from a short-term forklift rental, you need to understand lift truck rental agreements and how they align to the needs of your specific business.

BUSINESS FACTORS TO CONSIDER

One of the first things to understand is the demand for more forklift capacity. Depending on your need, the cost to rent a forklift on a short-term basis can save you quite a bit if you’re able to secure a low weekly or monthly rate. Short-term rentals are great for:

  • Replacing existing lift trucks that are out for repair or being serviced
  • Meeting a temporary demand for a high capacity or extended reach
  • To meet seasonal demand increases
  • Retain productivity until a new forklift fits the budget
  • Testing new models to see which best fits your needs

FORKLIFT RENTAL COSTS ARE TEMPORARY

A temporary expense for a forklift rental provides decision makers with much greater flexibility in managing the budget. Let’s be honest, not every business has the ability to spend the money on a new or used forklift purchase, particularly when there are so many other business questions to answer, such as:

  • Do you need more flexibility in your budgeting?
  • Are you going to need more capital to grow your business?
  • Do you need to leave forklift maintenance to someone else (i.e. your local forklift dealer)?
  • Do you want guaranteed uptime (with a full-maintenance option)?

HOW MUCH TO RENT A FORKLIFT?

If you’ve never rented before, you might be surprised at the actual forklift rental cost and how affordable it can be. However, statistics show that companies that own their fleets tend to keep their forklifts longer than financially makes sense. In many cases, to the point they’re spending more money to keep the fleet running than the fleet is worth. For a short-term upgrade, you can get an industry-leading forklift at less cost. Contact our rental department today at https://www.gwequip.com/contact/

UNDERSTANDING FORKLIFT RENTAL AGREEMENTS

If you intend to go beyond a short-term rental, consider talking with your local MCFA lift truck dealer first to make sure you get the most out of your forklift rental. Talk to your dealer about the weights and size of loads, lift heights, surface and operating condition, and any other special needs your facility may have.

Once you have a good feel for your general lift truck needs, you can discuss specifics like:

  • The need for optional forklift features, like additional lights, attachments or alarms.
  • For electric lift trucks and batteries, you’ll want to review the battery charger requirements. Some electric forklift batteries require chargers that must be hard wired and may require a professional for installation. Discuss battery and charger details with your local MCFA forklift dealer to make sure you understand your options.
  • Establish a timeline of how long your rental will last. As rental rates can be assessed differently, spelling out the time period can save you money by getting reduced long-term rates or reducing the term of your rental to the tightest possible time period.
  • Understand charges for overtime if a forklift will be used over the typical 8-hour workday, 40-hour week and 160-hour work month.
  • Ask about charges for damages and the review process when you receive and return the forklift.
  • Review your insurance policy. While the dealer insures the equipment, you’ll want to make sure your company’s insurance covers the operator, other people at your facility and the facility in the event of an injury or property damage when the rented forklift is in use.

High Cost of Forklift Abuse by G&W Equipment

G&W Equipment, Inc. - Conduct Forklift Inspections Before the Problems Happen

Causes Of Forklift Truck And Facility Damage

1. Poor Floor Conditions:

    • Driving forklifts over debris such as wood, plastic wrap, twine and banding can cause radiator or axle damage.
    • If debris is blown into the engine compartment, it can also destroy the cooling system and cause engine failure.

2. Improper Operating Practices:

    • Congested work areas can cause impact damage to product, lift trucks or facilities.
    • Losing control of the forklift can cause product damage or personal injury.
    • Any impact to the forklift can damage tires, wheels, body panels, frame parts, forks, attachments and the load backrest.

3. Unsafe Lifting and Speed:

    • Serious damage or personal injury can occur when forklift trucks operate at high lift and travel speeds.
    • Tip overs can also result from raising a heavy load while traveling too fast.

4. Incorrect Equipment or Options:

    • Using the wrong equipment for the job can cause premature wear and failure to major components.
    • Proper equipment selection helps ensure efficient forklift truck operation and performance, and helps to lower overall maintenance costs.
    • Operating forklifts with worn or incorrect tires can be a major contributor to your maintenance expense.

AMT is your source for ATX's GigaPass RF R-PHY Gateway Solutions.

ATX’s GigaPass Gateway from AMT

Migrating legacy QAM-based video services to your CCAP is in most cases a prerequisite to moving to a Distributed Access Architecture (DAA). But limitations around the encryption capabilities of CCAP video cores are threatening to delay the move to a distributed architecture, as well as the resulting benefits

Offering a detour around this roadblock, and a way for MSOs to accelerate the evolution of their networks, is a new RF R-PHY video engine from ATX Networks. Available through AMT, the ATX GigaPass is a
QAM-to-IP mux pass-through solution that enables cable operators to proceed with DAA deployments while working out lingering content encryption issues. And MSOs in a position to migrate all subscribers to an IPTV service in the next few years can potentially use the GigaPass to forego the expense and complexity of building out a CCAP video core altogether.

For a more detailed description of both GigaPass applications, take a look at this blog from ATX. And dig even deeper into the details by downloading the GigaPass datasheet.

Conduct Forklift Inspections Before the Problems Happen

Did you know that you can increase efficiency and profitability of your operation by regularly inspecting the forklifts in your fleet?
Conduct Inspections Before the Problems Happen by G&W Equipment, Inc

Did you know that you can increase efficiency and profitability of your operation by regularly inspecting the forklifts in your fleet? Doing so can help you identify preventative or routine maintenance needs before they become a larger concern.

Here are a few of the critical lift truck components to check:

Tilt Cylinders

Look for oil leaks or damage; leaks can be external or inside the cylinder.
If you see signs of leaks or damage, you need to either replace the seals or the lift truck’s entire cylinder assembly.

Chains

Check for signs of wear or damage.
Use a chain wear gauge – if wear is beyond 2%, replace the chain.
Replace kinked or rusted chains.

Forklift Mast

Make sure the mast moves up, down, forward and back smoothly.
If the sliding surfaces are binding, you may need to lubricate. After lubricating, raise and lower the mast and tilt it forward and back a few times to get lubricant into the fittings.

Forks

Look for cracks, damage and wear.
Replace forks if there is wear beyond 10%. Bent forks, uneven fork tines or indications that the forks have been modified by cutting or welding near the tip indicate that the forks should also be replaced.

Our trained service technicians can walk you through proper forklift inspection techniques or help your business select the right planned forklift maintenance schedule for your needs.

Commercial Waterproofing and Roofing Consultants – South Florida

Benchmark Consulting Group
BENCHMARK CONSULTING GROUP, INC. exists to provide the best professional guidance to our commercial clients, in the design, analysis and the asset management of their roofing and waterproofing needs.

COMMERCIAL ROOFING

A roof system is a building asset. Owners today recognize the significance of the investment they have made in protecting their building and its contents from water damage, in terms of both the roof’s cost and its replacement value. Even though a manufacturer’s or contractor’s warranty may have been purchased, the building owner continues to be responsible for proper roof care and maintenance.

As a result, Owners are now routinely implementing scheduled roof inspection and maintenance programs. Commercial Roof Consultants can be a valuable resource in providing assistance to owners in developing roof maintenance programs and an effective plan of action.

COMMERCIAL WATERPROOFING

The primary function of building envelope is to protect against water intrusion. When a building envelope fails, the results are often costly, dramatic and disastrous. Poorly designed or maintained building envelopes can leave a trail of litigious problems that can take years and many dollars to diagnose and repair. Below grade waterproofing can also be a source of a building Owner’s nightmares.

By performing due diligence inspections and developing a written plan of action, a commercial waterproofing consultant can reduce or eliminate a building Owner’s exposure.

In order to service your rental needs in a more efficient manner, we are requesting from all rental customers a Certificate of Insurance from your insurance provider to be kept on file at G&W Equipment.

We are required to have this Insurance Certificate for all rental customers prior to delivery of any rental forklift.

Please have your Insurance Carrier forward this to us and we will retain it on file for one year. This will help eliminate any delays in delivering your rental forklift when you are in need of one.
