Your Battery. Brought back to life
Electric forklifts have many advantages. They are quieter, easier to operate, cleaner, safe to use around food products and come in a variety of configurations not available in internal combustion equipment. However they have one large disadvantage. Batteries. Anyone who has ever had to replace one of these knows just how expensive all that lead and acid can be.
But there is an alternative to spending thousands of dollars on a replacement battery (seriously they are that expensive). For around 20% of the cost of a replacement battery, Secondhand Forklifts Sales & Service can send out a technician to regenerate your existing battery, extending it’s useful lifespan for many more years.
Using specialised equipment we throughly inspect the battery and give you an appraisal on it’s potential for rejuvenation. If you decide to proceed we strip the battery and, using our unique battery regenerator perform a multi-step process that removes contaminants and brings the battery back to life again.
Battery rejuvenation process steps
- Test the specific gravity and fluid height of each cell
- Test the voltage of each cell
- Check for any shorted cells
- Test the overall voltage
- Run a discharge test
- Drain existing fluid and fill with fresh acid to balance gravity at correct levels
- Use our specialised battery machine to perform a multi-day rejuvenation cycle
- Recheck cell and overall voltage
- Recheck gravity on each cell and adjust if necessary
- Perform load test
- Re-assemble battery
- Clean case and terminals to remove acid buildup
- Produce detailed report on outcome
