This might be the title of a Tina Turner classic, but it’s often the words uttered by forklift drivers stuck working in the rain. So how can you keep your drivers warm and happy when working in the rain?
Get a cab
You’ll want to be sure you’re still offering operators the widest visibility possible, but you also want to provide a dry, safe and quiet compartment that keeps them away from adverse weather conditions. So a cabin is a perfect answer. Cabins can be fitted to all vehicles, so there are certainly no headaches involved.
It gets better
Our range of cabins also offers high-performance heater and air-conditioning options. The front glass ticks all the safety boxes, and the doors and roof provide excellent noise suppression. There’s nothing worse than working in the rain, so it’s well worth considering this add-on. View our Electric Forklifts
Better for your staff
Your staff will be thanking you when you add on a cabin during the winter months. And we all know that happier staff make for more productive staff. Some of our cabins at South Island Forklifts are detachable, so once the cold season is over, you can remove the attachments and roll them up with little effort.
Winterise your forklift
It’s highly recommended that you take extra special care of your forklift through winter. That means keeping it out of the rain when not in operation and checking the fluids and lubricants are winter-ready. Regarding electric forklifts, remember to do regular checks of the cables and battery charge.
At South Island Forklifts, we understand your desire to look after your staff and keep your equipment in good working order. All our cabins are very competitively priced, and we are particularly impressed by the sharp prices of HELI cabins right now. So come out of the rain and talk to us about a forklift cabin.
