What To Consider
Here are a few things you should consider before getting that forklift seat.You will spend many hours working with a forklift. You will be sitting on a seat most times. That being said, here are some things you should consider for comfort and safety in the seats’ features.
Forklift seats back in the day looked a lot like the bench-type seating found in automobiles in that time period. Around the same time, automakers, including forklifts, started moving towards more comfortable bucket seatings. Forklift manufacturers followed suit too.
A lot of modern day forklift seats are curved to follow the natural shape of a person’s back, hips, and butt. It allows for snugger fit that cuts down on movement and vibration during an operation. It’s also ergonomically designed and reinforced and supports a person’s lower back.
Most forklifts are used around the clock. Hence, the seats will see a lot of wear and tear like any other parts of the forklift. After spending so many hours on the seat, it breaks, has worn springs, or is ripped open. Which can be very painful and uncomfortable for the user.
Having said all that, it is best that the seats’ materials are to be made of durable material. As it puts up with a lot of abuse. High-quality vinyl, thick leather, and a lot of strong materials will help prevent the forklift seats from becoming ripped or torn easily. The seats’ interior and springs help maintain their structure so it can be used longer before being replaced.
When you are installing a new seat on your forklift, make sure that it is bolted safely to the vehicle. It is not bolted securely, it can slide and pitch with every movement of the forklift. If it is loosely attached, then it will not take long for the driver to feel the effects.
The forklift seats need to be adjustable to account for different sized operators. It’s best to have it spring-loaded with quick-release levers to make it easier for drivers to adjust the seat to the length of their legs and body shape. Sometimes, the seat may also be adjusted by the same operator to facilitate different operations.
Don’t Get Cheap Seats
This part is pretty self-explanatory. Buying the cheapest replacement seat is usually not the best answer to refurbish a forklift seat. Forklift seats that are not made well will result in drivers’ discomfort and possibly injury. Not forgetting to mention, they tend to have a shorter usable life and needs to be replaced more often.
You will need to replace it again and again, which isn’t economically viable. It also reduces forklift efficiency and profitability. Best that you buy a forklift seat that is high-quality and ergonomically correct for your forklift drivers.
