Always wear eye protection when inspecting battery. Use a hydrometer to check your battery acid. A fully charged battery should read to specific gravity. When adding water to battery, use distilled water only. Keep outside of battery clean and dry to avoid corrosion of terminals and connectors.

Monday, June 6, Pallet Jack Push Rod Inspection, Lift-Rite L When inspecting the push rods on your manual pallet jack, look for broken or cracked welds, bends, missing roll pins and worn bushings. It is best to mark the position of the eye bolt and nut in relation to the push rod to ensure proper adjustment during installation.
Note: The nut on the eye bolt is primarily a marker for proper adjustment. It also keeps the eye bolt or push rod from spinning out of adjustment when working on the load roller brackets or lifting link. It is easiest to adjust the push rod correctly if both push rod and bracket assemblies are in a fully lowered position before installing the pivot axle.
To ensure push rods are adjusted correctly, pump the jack up, then place the jack into release. If both forks bottom-out at the same time, the push rods are adjusted correctly. If one fork hits bottom before the other, it needs to be adjusted. You can either lengthen the push rod that hit first or shorten the push rod that hit second. Loosen the nut on the eye bolt and turn either way to achieve the correct length.
