Questions to Ask When Purchasing a Forklift

A forklift is more than just machine—it’s an investment for the good of your business. Purchasing a forklift is not a decision that should not be taken lightly. Every forklift model has its advantages and choosing the model that best suits your material handling needs takes time and careful consideration.

Asking the right questions is vital when investing in new equipment. Whatever your forklift needs may be, make sure to ask these five questions when considering your next purchase.

What is my budget?

Deciding on a budget will not only save you time and resources, but it will also narrow down your options. If you’re not sure whether purchasing a new forklift is the right option for you, other possibilities include leasing, renting or buying used.

While buying a used forklift may seem tempting, keep in mind that buying used means you’ll get shorter life out of the machine. A new forklift is a larger investment, but purchase ensures brand new parts.

Will I be driving the forklift inside or outside?

It’s important to know where you will be operating to determine what type of forklift you should purchase. Electric forklifts are often thought of for use indoors. However, a Linde forklift with its splash-proof electrical system can also be a great option for outdoor use.

When it comes to the difference between indoor and outdoor forklifts, it comes down to the tires versus the power source. Electric forklifts commonly have cushion tires, which are ideal for smooth surfaces or loading docks. They also offer a smaller turning radius and last longer than their pneumatic counterpart.

Internal combustion engine forklifts with pneumatic or super-elastic tires have strong traction on rough or uneven terrain, making them the perfect choice for outdoor applications like construction sites or lumber yards.

What are the maintenance costs?

Owning a forklift is a big responsibility, so make sure to ask about maintenance costs when considering the purchase of a new machine. Typically, there are two types of maintenance agreements that are offered by the forklift dealer.

Planned Maintenance (PM) is a basic plan that states the dealer will perform service to the forklift over a determined schedule. Full Maintenance (FM) charges the customer a monthly fee to cover breakdown and maintenance over a certain period.

Does the brand of forklift matter?

While it may be tempting to purchase a forklift based solely on price, the brand of forklift does in fact matter. You should never buy a forklift based on price alone. Brands like Linde and Baoli are backed by more than 100 years of material handling expertise, making them more reliable. Small or unknown brands may be less expensive, but what you may save in up-front price, you’ll most likely pay for in replacement parts when your forklift breaks down.

Should I try before I buy?

You wouldn’t buy a car without test driving it, and the same should apply when purchasing a forklift. Before purchasing, request a demo to test the machine in your facility. Test driving a forklift will give you a good idea of how well it functions and how suitable it is for your needs.

By asking these questions and talking to a knowledgeable dealer, you can be sure that you are making a great investment for your business. At KION North America, we provide innovative forklift models to help your business become more productive and profitable.

Product Spotlight: Baoli KBG25C

Released in October, Baoli KBG25C is the first internal combustion, LPG-powered forklift to be made available in North America from the Baoli product line that is equipped with non-treaded cushion tires. With a load capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, this forklift is among the top of its class in both efficiency and performance.

Performance

The Baoli KBG25C is designed for indoor, warehouse use and is an ideal choice for businesses that primarily operate LPG-powered equipment in their facilities. They are popular in freight forwarding applications and other warehouse environments that are not suitable for electric forklifts.

Built using quality components, the performance of this truck is outstanding. The proven IMPCO K25 LPG engine delivers 60 HP of power to more easily handle heavy loads. Depending on the requirements of your facility, this forklift is also available with either a triplex mast or simplex “trucker’s” mast (pictured).

Additionally, being able to work in tight spaces is vital in the North American market as many facilities have narrow aisles and dense floor-level storage. The Baoli KBG25C yields a tight turn radius allowing it to work in aisles as narrow as 13 feet. Along with the compact design, this forklift maximizes fuel efficiency with its innovative deceleration fuel shutoff—ultimately reducing operating costs.

Reliability

As with any piece of equipment, routine preventative maintenance is crucial to maximizing efficiency and performance. To help you get the most out of your investment, performing maintenance on the KBG25C has never been easier. The hood opens to a nearly 90-degree angle allowing the operator to easily access the engine. Removable floor plates and side panels give the operator access to a majority of the truck. Taking accessibility a step further, it also has dash access to the brake fluid. These features help save your business time when it comes to keeping up with maintenance and keep your business running smoothly.

Even though a truck has outstanding performance, it never hurts to have a good warranty you can rely on. All Baoli forklifts, including the KBG25C, are backed by KION North America’s standard 2-year warranty which covers standard equipment for the first year and unlimited hours, in addition to standard powertrain coverage for two years or 4,000 hours. An optional extended warranty for one additional year or 2,000 hours can be purchased.

Whether needed for routine maintenance or repair, one of the worst things that can happen to a company is when your equipment is inoperable while you are waiting for spare parts to arrive. However, Baoli brand equipment is fully integrated into KION North America’s supply chain and service system. The company’s South Carolina-based warehouse is stocked with a variety of spare parts and with a network of authorized dealers throughout the United States, this makes delivery possible within 24 hours.

Safety and Comfort

Like the comparable electric version of this truck, the Baoli KBG25C is equipped with a host of standard comfort features at no extra cost including a tilt steering column and a comfort suspension seat making it comfortable for any size operator. Work assist features on this model include LED work lights and a rear pillar assist handle with horn.

The Baoli KBG25C isn’t only comfortable to operate, but is also one of the safest trucks in its class. An amber warning light and forward facing twin LED spotlights are mounted to the overhead guard. Combined with a backup alarm and travel speed reduction, the standard safety features will make your workplace a safer environment for everyone. Additional safety options available include a rear-facing blue spotlight, road lights (brake, reverse and turn signals), fire extinguisher and Baoli safety orange paint (pictured).

If you are looking for a quality LPG-powered forklift without breaking the bank, the Baoli KBG25C could be a great fit for your operation. For more information or to request a demo contact your authorized local dealer today.

5 Important Tips for Warehouse Efficiency

Warehouses often manage thousands of dollars worth of inventory that must be sent and received under tight deadlines. To ensure maximum efficiency, inventory must be labeled, sorted, and retrieved with speed and accuracy. An unproductive warehouse can damage customer or business relationships by wasting time and money. Thrive in today’s highly competitive environment with these five tips for warehouse efficiency.

Stay organized

Organization is key to smooth warehouse operations. A large team of employees managing a wide variety of inventory can quickly become disjointed if managers aren’t careful. Labeling all inventory is the first step of organization. Forgotten or lost items are wasting money and storage space if they cannot be easily located. All inventory should be organized in a way that is understood by employees and safe to access. When scheduling shifts, give employees half an hour at the end of their day to clean up and finish order processing before leaving. This helps your warehouse stay organized and keeps workers on the next shift from becoming confused.

Prioritize high volume inventory

Top-selling items should always be located near the front of the warehouse and within easy reach of the picking team. If a new item becomes a top seller, make sure your team is aware of its location to save time searching through the warehouse. Consider storing less popular items toward the back and relocating them if performance continues to diminish. Color coding orders or pick lists to reflect high- or low-volume inventory can help employees quickly locate and package the materials that are valuable to customers.

Train managers in quality control

If a customer receives the wrong item, it could potentially damage your business’ reputation and can cost time and money fixing. Quality control is a safety net that all managers should practice. Double-check all orders by comparing the picked item’s SKU number and quantity against the order the customer placed. Quality control also involves evaluating the item for damage to make sure the customer receives an order in the expected condition.

Utilize technology

Radio-frequency identification tracking has become integral to many warehouses. It allows you to digitally track all incoming and outgoing inventory while dramatically saving labor. Another option is voice-enabled technology that is incorporated into your warehouse management without any modifications to your WPS. Voice enablers improve inventory control and can be used in various operations including shipping, returns, and receiving. Other technology such as digital twins can help you manage your warehouse more efficiently and provide better customer service.

Designate a damages bin

To prevent damaged items from returning to shelves and accidentally getting sent out to a customer, make sure that employees have designated a section to dispose of damaged items. It is also important to make sure that this section is accessible to the managers or employees who are running quality control on inventory. The more simplified this process, the more quickly inventory can be checked and disposed of if needed.

The team at KION North America is helping businesses grow and operate more efficiently by providing warehouse managers with outstanding forklift models from our Linde and Baoli product lines and tailored supply chain solutions from our sister company, Dematic.

Baoli at Work: World Missionary Press

Last year, World Missionary Press purchased a Baoli KBET18 forklift from Balint/Ryder Handling Equipment to use in their printing operation located in New Paris, Indiana.

Founded in 1961, World Missionary Press is an interdenominational literature ministry producing topical Scripture booklets in more than 340 languages, plus Bible study booklets, New Testaments and salvation coloring books in a variety of languages. In their more than 55 years of operation, the company has produced more than 2 billion Scripture booklets.

“We needed a small forklift with four-way hydraulics that we could put our roll clamp on for moving and turning rolls of paper,” said Jerry Whitener, plant and facilities manager. “With the Baoli forklift, we are now able to pick up two rolls of paper at a time versus one with our previous forklift.”

Each wide roll of paper measures 12 miles long, weighs 1,500 pounds and prints the equivalent of the inside pages of 85,000 Scripture booklets.

Whitener added that the company had been in the market for a small, used forklift, but there were very few in the 3,000-3,500 pound capacity range equipped with the four-way hydraulics. “Those in good condition that we did find were easily in the $15,000 range,” he said. “For just a little more money, we were able to purchase a brand new Baoli.”

Powered by a 48-volt battery, the Baoli KBET18 provides excellent power and increased productivity. The energy-efficient design allows for continuous operation during day-to-day jobs, while the compact design allows for ease of maneuverability in narrow aisles.

Forklifts are not only an integral part of the company’s printing process, but are also used as part of their packaging and shipping process. Ten-pound boxes of Scripture booklets are stacked on skids and wrapped for shipment. According to their website, an average of 1.5 tons of literature leaves the World Missionary Press facility each working day.

Product Spotlight: Baoli KBE25C

Are you in the market for a compact, energy efficient forklift? If so, look no further than the Baoli KBE25C. This electric sit-down counterbalanced truck is in a class of its own with its compact design and efficient performance. Powered by either a 36- or 48-volt battery and boasting a load capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, this truck is best suited for indoor warehouse environments. With the purchase of this Baoli truck, your workplace will become more environmentally friendly, and all-around more efficient.

Performance and Reliability

The Baoli KBE25C forklift is a strong performer with many standard features. The AC drive and lift motors provide excellent power to maximize productivity. It also comes equipped with cushion tires which yield a tighter turn radius that allows the truck to work in aisles as narrow as eight feet. Not only does it have the ability to work in tight spaces, but with the Baoli KBE25C, you can lift your load to a height of over 15 feet.

All Baoli forklifts are backed by KION North America’s standard 2-year warranty which covers standard equipment for the first year and unlimited hours, in addition to standard powertrain coverage for two years or 4,000 hours. An optional extended warranty for one additional year or 2,000 hours can be purchased.

The Baoli brand is fully integrated into the KION NA supply chain and service system. The company’s South Carolina-based warehouse is stocked with a variety of spare parts. Coupled with a network of authorized dealers throughout the United States, this makes delivery possible within 24 hours.

Although the Baoli KBE25C comes with all the standard equipment needed to get the job done, KION North America offers a variety of additional options to further improve the truck’s performance and ease of use. Some of these options include an integrated sideshifter, and even Baoli orange paint.

Safety and Comfort

With the all the talk about the performance of this truck, let’s not forget about comfort. The KBE25C comes equipped with many comfort and convenience features at no extra cost. With its fully adjustable comfort suspension seat and the tilt steering column, this truck can accommodate different operators.

Sometimes when completing a task, you may have documents or other objects that you may not be able to hold onto as you operate the truck. To solve this issue, Baoli installed an in-dash utility tray and a seat side document clip.

Along with comfort, the Baoli KBE25C has many standard safety features including front LED work lights, a dash-mounted cutoff switch, travel speed reduction, an amber strobe, and an audible backup alarm. Optional safety features include a rear-mounted blue pedestrian warning light and spotlight, and brake and reverse warning lights.

If you are looking for a quality forklift without breaking the bank, the Baoli KBE25C could be a great fit for your operation. For more information or to request a demo of the Baoli KBE25C forklift contact your authorized local dealer today.

How Data, Automation, and Regulations Are Changing Manufacturing

The enormous demands of e-commerce are driving manufacturing plants to continuously expand storage capabilities and pick, slot, and load products faster. The cold food industry has always faced unique challenges when delivering to customers, but it has grown more complex in an age of quick turnover and delivering meal prep kits directly to a customer’s door. In addition to the refrigerated foods sector, other manufacturing industries are streamlining data analytics, automation, and improved safety regulations into their day-to-day operations.

Analyzing data

Data analytics have become a huge part of warehouse operations. The information collected influences the vast majority of management decisions. With data, managers can modify distribution centers according to customer purchasing habits and preferences. Additionally, data can highlight inefficiencies in picking and slotting strategies. Managing a fleet of wireless forklifts and collecting data from robot and AI systems can be expensive, but this technologically-driven practice provides unmatched insight into warehouse operations. Increased demand for products and their fast delivery means that warehouse managers will have to improve current sorting, picking, and slotting systems. Data analytics are the backbone of this advancement.

Incorporating automation

Automation is becoming a fixture of nearly every industry, and manufacturing is no exception. With automation, warehouses can operate 24/7 without compromising efficiency or productivity. Automated storage retrieval systems maintain a database of product locations that is updated in real-time. When the system receives a directive to ship out a particular item, it can quickly and accurately find and retrieve the product. Using radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, products in the warehouse are assigned a tag identifying both the item and its location. Automated systems can read the radio signals emitted by the products which leads the AI directly to the item it needs. Although expensive, automated systems have a lower margin of error and can operate for significantly longer hours than a human employee.

Developing regulations

Protecting the health and safety of workers is one of the most important aspects of the manufacturing industry. “There will be more workplace regulations considering the harsh environment, leading to worker fatigue due to heavy protective gear to combat the cold,” said Bob Hasenstab, general product manager at the Summerville, S.C. branch of KION North America. “Use dedicated ‘stay in’ equipment with freezer cabs that allow operators to work a full shift without more stoppage time. These heated cabs have features like dual-pane, shatterproof windows, heating strips with block-outs for scanners, heated seats, insulation and energy saving systems.” In an effort to increase employee comfort and productivity, many warehouses are adding heated seats, floorboards and drive handles to cabs.

KION North America is a member of the KION Group–a global leader in industrial trucks, related services and supply chain solutions.  We offer an impressive line of industrial forklifts including Linde and Baoli. Our sister company Dematic offers a comprehensive range of intelligent supply chain and automation solutions. For more information visit us at our website.

Released in 2015, the Baoli KBG25/35 like other Baoli brand products is fully integrated into the KION North America service and supply chain. This means that Baoli shares resources with other KION brands, including the longstanding Linde Material Handling brand. In North America, the two brands share an established sales and service network.

Standard / Optional Features

The Baoli KBG25/35 is equipped with front LED work lights, a Bolzoni side shifter, triplex mast, back -up alarm, strobe light and many other features that can make your business more efficient and contribute to a safer work environment. Baoli trucks come with many operator comfort and safety features at no extra cost. If the standard features aren’t enough for you to accomplish the task at hand, the Baoli KBG has optional features as well. Some of these features include fire extinguisher mounted to overhead guard, fourth-function control valve and Baoli safety orange paint color.

Comfort and Safety

With this truck, comfort does not take a back seat. The KBG25/35 provides a smoother ride thanks to its fully suspended cab, neoprene mounted steer axle, softer riding solid pneumatic tires and adjustable, comfort suspension seat. Hidden tilt cylinders give the operator more floor space and foot room. The tilt steering column accommodates the driving position of different operators.

The KBG25/35 includes multiple features to help protect the operator and others in the workplace. The overhead guard includes a Plexiglas® cover that shields the operator from rain and small debris. An orange seat belt with sequential interlock requires the operator to be seated and to fasten the seat belt before starting the forklift. The orange color helps supervisors see from a distance that their operators are wearing their seatbelts. The standard flashing strobe and backup alarm can be supplemented with a blue spotlight that helps others in the workplace be aware of an approaching forklift. A sound-insulated engine compartment reduces noise, helping the operator to hear his/her surroundings.

Performance and Quality

The performance of the Baoli KBG25/35 exceeds the standard for economy segment forklifts. The K25 engine has been proven over decades of use in forklift applications. Its IMPCO fuel system provides outstanding performance with plenty of power, and good fuel economy thanks to an innovative deceleration fuel shutoff that maximizes engine efficiency.

Understanding that high lifts can be challenging,  the Baoli KBG25/35 was designed to offer good forward and upward visibility, with capacity to spare for most loads. The controls are both easy to reach and responsive.

Additionally, routine maintenance is really easy on this forklift. The engine hood opens to a nearly 90-degree angle, providing easy access to components. The easy-to-read dash display provides important information about the unit. Maintenance costs are reduced with longer maintenance intervals and features like a timing chain driven camshaft that requires no belt changes.

The Baoli KBG25/35 is backed by KION North America’s standard warranty. Baoli spare parts are kept in stock at KION North America’s warehouse in South Carolina, making delivery possible within 24 hours throughout the U.S. by authorized dealers.

If you’re looking for a quality forklift that you can rely on that won’t break the bank, look no further. For more information or to request a demo of the Baoli KBG25/35 forklift contact your authorized local dealer today.

Forklift Attachments: Which Ones Are Right For Your Operation?

Forklift attachments replace the traditional fork with a product ideally suited to the loads you intend to work with. Without the proper attachment for your forklift, you risk damaging the products, the forklift itself, or injuring an employee. When selecting a forklift, be aware than an attachment will alter the capacity of your forklift, and you should make adjustments accordingly when deciding how heavy of a load you should attempt to transport. Smaller attachments are better suited for lighter loads. Ensure that operators are trained to safely use forklifts and their attachments, and never exceed the carrying capacity of a lift. Attachments can help you safely lift products, limit any damages, and improve productivity by saving time and money in your warehouse.

Side shifters

Side shifters operate with the forklift and are one of the most a popular attachments. Drivers can shift the product to the right or left without leaving their seat. If a load is improperly aligned, it can easily be corrected with the aid of a side shifter. Not only does this streamline the process and make it more convenient, it also saves the forklift unnecessary wear and tear. If you need to handle two pallets at once, side shifters are also available in double.

Fork positioners

These handy tools also help operators work more efficiently, since they automatically adjust the distance between the forks in order to accommodate different pallet sizes. Once again, drivers don’t even need to leave their seats.

Clamps

Paper roll and flat surface clamps help protect products from damage. Paper roll clamps are used for holding on to paper while its unrolled and are suitable for many different applications. If the load can’t be transported by a pallet, you should use paper roll clamps. Transporting heavy appliances such as washers, dryers, and refrigerators should be undertaken with the help of flat surface clamps.

Slipsheet attachments

If you are operating a food-processing warehouse, you may want to consider the cost-cutting push/pull attachments. These forklift attachments push the load directly off of the forks, eliminating the need for pallets. Multiple load handlers are also popular in the food industry since they allow you to double or triple the efficiency of your forklifts.

Forklift spreader

This commonly used attachment works best when lifting heavy loads such as plasterboard, timber, or roof sheeting. With a spreader, you reduce the risk of damaging a heavy load that may exceed the carrying capability of a regular forklift. Pallet forks are another useful attachment for lifting heavy loads generally up to 1800 kg. Increased operator visibility is an added benefit of pallet forks.

At KION North America, we provide the equipment and skills needed for creating a safe, efficient facility. We offer an impressive line of state-of-the-art forklifts that make your handling and logistics operations significantly easier. Linde and Baoli forklift brands are ideally suited for the modern operation.

Recap: Fall 2017 Dealer Sales Meeting

CONTINUING TO MOVE FASTER TOGETHER

Since the release of five new products at ProMat earlier this year, KION North America has worked to continue capitalizing on that momentum.

From Oct. 25-27, the company hosted a dealer sales update  meeting in Charleston, S.C. There were more than 150 attendees representing 63 dealerships from throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico equaling 85 percent of the company’s dealer network.

PLANT TOUR

Upon arriving in the Lowcountry,  attendees were taken on a private tour of KION North America’s facilities including its manufacturing plant and parts warehouse. Several facility upgrades have been made in the two years since the company’s last Charleston-based dealer meeting including the addition of new assembly and storage areas, a counterweight (CTW) roller system, the changeover to DC-powered torque tools, controlled monitoring and the soon-to-be-completed external covering for stock equipment. The plant tour was followed by a pig and oyster roast welcome dinner.

“We’ve been moving at such a fast pace over the last several years that we wanted to take the opportunity to not only acknowledge, but also to celebrate, where we started and how far we’ve come,” said Vincent Halma, president and CEO of KION North America.

 

NEW PRODUCTS & TECHNOLOGY

The second day was dedicated to learning about new products and technologies which included additions to both the company’s Linde and Baoli product lines. Attendees also had the opportunity to test drive each of the new products along with some popular existing models.

The Linde Series 1346 is a stand-up electric counterbalanced truck with a load capacity ranging from 3,500-4,000 pounds. This truck is best suited for loading and unloading supplies from trucks and working in tight aisles.

In its economy segment, the company introduced the Baoli KBE25C (electric powered) and the Baoli KBG25C (LPG powered). Both cushion tire forklifts, they are designed to work in a variety of indoor environments. Their small size and sharp turn radius are ideal for working in tight spaces, loading docks and in high lift dock-to-stock operations.

Additionally, Dematic showcased the new iGo neo, a dual-use automated guided vehicle. This vehicle can operate as both a traditional walker-rider machine or as a fully automatic AGV. This new technology can improve overall picking performance by up to 30 percent. The iGo neo is powered by STILL and will be sold in North America by Dematic.

These additions complete their goal of the largest new product release in company and material handling industry in a single year, which they began with the introduction of five new volume and economy segment forklifts at ProMat in Chicago earlier this year.

“By adding eight new products to our product portfolio this year, we are one step closer to achieving our goal of transitioning from a premium, niche equipment provider to a full-line material handling equipment provider,” added Halma.

 

GOLF TOURNAMENT

The meeting concluded on Friday with a captain’s choice golf tournament at Dunes West Golf Club in Mount Pleasant. There were 15 teams comprised of over 60 participants. Brian Hutto, a regional sales manager with KION North America had a hole in one on the 169-yard 17th hole. Finishing in first place were Lonnie Boyd and Jon Paul Tabor of CE-DFW and Tim Woeste, KION North America key account manager.

WHAT’S NEXT?

KION North America’s next planned product release will come in 2018 with the introduction of their much anticipated warehouse product line.
