Good Morning one and all,

Here @rdmachinery we thought we would send out a few handy little tips to try and keep sane in these testing times. This great idea is handy for those forklift owners.

Stay safe people 👍👍 we will post something every week that we believe will help your business

Digital Camera for the Mast

Increases safety:

Poor visibility around forklifts is one of the most common causes of accidents in the workplace. Cables, chains, bars and the mast itself clutter the visual field in front of the mast and fork carriage. The load also can partially or totally obscure the front view. Fitting cameras to a forklift increases safety by giving the driver a view of obstacles and of areas that would otherwise be blind spots, helping to prevent accidents. The driver can see directly on the monitor whether or not the fork is appropriately positioned, so that the ends can be inserted into the pallet openings correctly. A camera therefore prevents accidents as well as damage to the truck, the racks and the load.

Improves ergonomics:

The ergonomically positioned monitor allows drivers to adopt a natural viewing position, which means they no longer have to look up at an awkward angle. The image on the monitor gives the driver a clear view of the fork. This relieves strain on the neck and shoulder muscles, reducing absence caused by sickness and increasing productivity.



Work twice as fast:

The Mid-mast view system allows the driver to position the truck optimally as it provides a view of the forks after free lift of the machine. Since the camera 'looks' underneath the forks, the driver also has a good view of the beams when putting the pallet down. Thanks to the camera monitor system the driver has a better view, which saves time and increases productivity. A driver can work twice as fast using a camera system. The camera system therefore quickly pays for itself by reducing damage and increasing efficiency and driver comfort
