It takes about 60% of the charge time for the battery to go from 0-90% charged. The remaining 40% adds on the last 10% of charge to the battery. We recommend that a good overnight charge will be sufficient for use.
Control Switches – Check the limit switches every month. Ensure that both the speed and direction settings are working properly. Verify that the e-stop button stops all operation, and the safety belly stop button prevents the unit from moving in reverse.
Batteries – Charge batteries a minimum of once a week. The built-in charger will not overcharge the batteries. When not in use, your unit’s batteries should be fully charged.
Fasteners – Check for loose or damaged fasteners every 6 months.
Casters (if equipped) – Check the caster fastener every 2 months for tightness. Do not over tighten.
Bin Tug Cleaning – Clean your unit frequently. Dirty or dusty environments may require a more frequent cleaning schedule.
