Tips to keep cool
Rising temperatures increase the potential for damage to your material handling equipment.  You may experience engine wear at a higher rate, parts failures, and more maintenance expenses - which can all be avoided by taking a few precautions:

1. Replace work belts - they'll cause overheating
2. Coolant - check it and replace it regularly
3. Hoses - do not wait until you see real damage, it may be too late.  If the coolant leaks, engine temperature will rise.
4. Test radiator cap pressure - coolant is pressurized to help keep the boiling point of coolant high and those caps are vital to ensuring correct pressurization.
5. Examine the engine fan - it should keep heat away from the engine so make sure it is not damaged.
6. Make sure inching pedals are adjusted correctly
7. Radiator screens - remove any debris or clogged areas

While maintaining optimal engine temperature is important any time of year, keep a closer eye on it during these hot summer months.
