Keep your material handling equipment on the job and out of the shop by stopping problems before they start with a planned maintenance program. Each program is scheduled to your specific production needs as determined by an evaluation of your operations, taking into account:

  • Current lift truck maintenance practices
  • Actual hours lift truck is run
  • How your lift truck is used in your application

Based on the evaluation, we design a maintenance schedule that keeps your lift truck in optimal running condition, resulting in longer equipment life, less downtime and greater trade-in value on your next lift truck purchase.

Breakdowns may be unpredictable, but they are preventable. With preventative maintenance for your heavy or compact equipment, or material handling lift trucks, you can reduce the chance of expensive and time-consuming repairs, which can set back your project timelines and force you to abandon bids for future jobs. At RAKA, our certified technicians are here to deliver preventative maintenance services you can count on and trust, ensuring your equipment is there to complete projects ahead of schedule.
