At Linde, used equipment is refurbished on the basis of a standardized process.

If a part needs to be replaced, the technician only installs durable Linde original spare parts. Only after a forklift has successfully passed through the entire process, will it receive the “Used Truck”. The reconditioning process consists of the following steps:

1. Selecting Source of Trucks

As a rule, Linde Used Truck are selected from Linde’s short term and long term rental fleets, which have been regularly serviced by Linde technicians during their previous period of use and undergo a strictly inspection upon return. This ensures every approved truck is in good quality.

2. High-pressure Cleaning

Every forklift undergoes high-pressure cleaning before inspection in order to remove any remaining dirt as well as oil and grease. The truck is then ready for further inspection.


3. Comprehensive Inspection

Certified professional technicians will examine every component. A comprehensive visual inspection as well as a measurement and function check allow them to identify possible weaknesses on the forklift or on individual components which will require further inspection.

4. Engine and Emissions Test

For the IC truck, Linde uses the latest diagnostics equipment to put the drive unit through its paces. In this way, the full engine power, operational reliability and compliance with the applicable emissions standards can be guaranteed, especially for diesel forklifts.


5. Battery and Charger Check

The charger and batteries of electric forklifts are carefully checked to ensure that they deliver normal performance. If this is not the case, technicians will replace battery cells or the whole battery.



6. Refurbishment and Repair

Linde technician communicates with the Used Equipment department to determine refurbishment schemes and levels. All mechanical and electrical components, and all safety parts in particular, are carefully checked and replaced with Linde original spare parts if necessary.


7. Repainting

A first-class outer appearance is the finishing touch in the reconditioning process. That’s why forklifts receive a completely new paint job and new original Linde labels where this is required. Minor signs of wear and tear are professionally repaired and re-painted in the original color.


8. Final Inspection

The last step is a comprehensive final inspection and acceptance. Linde provides the acceptance certificate and a quality authentication certificate to every reconditioned truck that has successfully passed through the inspection and reconditioning process and such trucks will receive the “Approved by Linde” upon completion of refurbishment.
