Planned Preventative Maintenance:

Planned Maintenance (PM) programs are available for all brands of forklifts. A well structured PM program will extend the economic life of your lift truck and maximize your return on investment.  A PM program from Sliski Service will provide you with an economical way to keep your fleet safe. By having us perform a PM Service on your forklift, you will meet your OSHA requirements for lift truck maintenance.

 We can schedule the PM visit based on your individual operations. By reducing unplanned downtime we maximize uptime allowing you to move more product per hour and reduce your operating costs.

We offer PM service agreements and not contracts. As usage changes due to economic or seasonal conditions so will the amount of hours that the equipment will run.
Our PM programs are based on a flat rate per machine charge. Any repairs or safety concerns that are found in addition to the PM, will be noted on the worksheet. You will receive a written estimate.

Some of the areas that are checked on a PM are noted below.
