How to choose the ideal earthmoving components for your fleet

Choosing components: If you are responsible for managing a fleet of forklifts, you know how crucial it is to keep your machines in perfect working order. In this article we will discover everything you need to know about the proper functioning of your forklifts.

How to choose components: the quality of the components

Forklifts are essential tools in many industries and their efficiency largely depends on the quality of their components. In particular, earthmoving components play a fundamental role in ensuring the stability, safety and performance of forklifts. In this article, we will explore how to choose the ideal earthmoving components for your fleet, thus ensuring maximum efficiency and operational safety.

How to choose components: evaluate the needs of your fleet

The first step in choosing the ideal earthmoving components for your forklift fleet is to fully understand the specific needs. Each fleet may have different requirements based on the sector in which it operates, the load it transports and the environmental conditions in which it works. Carry out a detailed assessment of the following areas:

  1. Weight and load capacity: Consider the maximum weight your forklifts must lift. Make sure earthmoving components are designed to handle heavy loads safely.
  2. Work environment: environmental conditions, such as the presence of bumpy, dirty or wet surfaces, influence the choice of earthmoving components. You will need to consider tires, shock absorbers and other parts according to the usage environment.
  3. Type of forklift: reach trucks, side trucks, telescopic boom forklifts – each type of forklift requires specific earthmoving components to ensure optimal performance.
  4. Preventive maintenance: Evaluate your preventive maintenance strategy. High-quality components may require a higher initial outlay, but can reduce maintenance costs in the long term.

How to choose components: consult industry experts

Choosing the ideal earthmoving components can be a complex task, especially if you are not an expert in the field. In these cases, it is advisable to consult industry experts or reliable forklift parts suppliers. They can help you identify quality components that meet the specific needs of your fleet.

Experts can also offer advice on component compatibility and compliance with safety regulations. Investing in trusted relationships with qualified suppliers is often a wise step to ensure smooth operations.


How to choose components: quality and safety

When choosing earthmoving components for your fleet, it is essential to place a strong emphasis on quality and safety. Opting for low-cost but poor-quality components can lead to frequent failures and dangerous situations. Instead, look for certified products from renowned brands, even if they require a larger initial investment.

Forklift safety is of primary importance, as a malfunction can result in serious injury or property damage. High quality components will help reduce the risk of accidents and increase the efficiency of your fleet.

Monitor and maintain components

Once you have chosen the ideal earthmoving components, the management of your fleet does not end. It is essential to implement a regular monitoring and maintenance program to ensure that components continue to function reliably over time. Preventative maintenance can help prevent costly failures and extend the life of components.

Choosing spare parts: maximizing the efficiency and longevity of forklifts, reducing the risk of accidents


Choosing the ideal earthmoving components for your forklift fleet is a critical decision that directly impacts the performance and safety of your operations. Take the time to carefully evaluate your fleet’s needs, consult industry experts and invest in high-quality components.

This approach will help you maximize the efficiency and longevity of your forklifts, while reducing the risk of accidents and costly downtime.






Slowing down the forklifts in specific areas

Forklifts slowdown. The safety of vehicles inside warehouses and production areas is a fundamental issue that requires increasingly safe and technological devices. Tamarri has always been at the forefront of research and distribution of the best solutions in this field.

Slowing down the forklift: a safety issue

Safety is a very sensitive topic within warehouses and production sites in general, especially when the matter is that of slowing down in specific and sensitive areas.

Workplace safety laws are increasingly specific and severe, as are the regulations. Warehouses, although highly automated, must take into account many and often unexpected variables. For instance, the movements of pedestrians within specific maneuvering areas, “blind” corridors in which vehicles maneuver.

schema rallentamento incrocio

Therefore, increasingly technological and high-level devices and solutions managed and controlled remotely via websites, mobile phones and tablets come into play.

Tamarri is giving his contribution on this fundamental aspect.

Read how! 😉

Tamarri and the slowdown in zone and area

Tamarri S.r.l. developed a device thanks to the highly technological combination of sensors and transmitters. But let’s see how.

Main functionalities

immagine 1

The combination of different sensors and transmitters from the STS range allows to slow down the forklift in medium-large areas (production areas, corridors, warehouses with a high density of pedestrians) or in specific areas (pedestrian crossings, intersections, offices). Let’s now analyze the devices used within the STS ecosystem.

Devices and technical data of the individual components

STS90A forklift device 12-24V

FORKLIFT DEVICE: the core of the system, used for the collection of signals, data and parameterization of the system. It has 2 on-board relays for access control and speed reduction and a shock sensor.

Wall-mounted powered transmitters

These transmitters allow you to automate the the speed of the vehicle in specific areas (reduced and normal speed)

  • STS95 area limitation transmitter
  • STS94 speed restore transmitter
  • STS99 zone limitation transmitter

They are equipped with a LIR2450 rechargeable buffer battery to cover blackout periods.  External power is required (reccomended devices).

Wall-mounted battery transmitters:

  • STS95P area limitation transmitter
  • STS94P function restore transmitter
  • STS99P zone limitation transmitter

Simpler to apply, but they require periodic maintenance (replacement of the CR2450 3.6V battery every 6/8 months).

The STS95 and STS95P area limitation transmitters are normally used to manage access gates in risk areas. When the STS90A forklift device enters the sensor “bubble”, the k2 relay closes, the device light turns from green to orange and the speed is reduced. The state of the relay remains the same, even when you leave the sensor’s interception zone or if you turn the vehicle off and on again.

The STS94 and STS94P function restore transmitters represent the antagonists of the slowdown transmitters. When the previously slowed down forklift enters the “bubble” of the sensor, the k2 relay reopens and the device light turns green again, restoring the standard speed of the vehicle.

The STS99 and STS99P area limitation transmitters are used to limit the speed of vehicles in restricted areas, pedestrian crossings, refreshment areas, intersections and offices. When the STS90A forklift device enters the sensor area, the k2 relay closes, the device light turns red and the speed of the vehicle is limited.

After a certain period of time expressed in seconds – settable through SafeTApp – from the moment the vehicle leaves the sensor “bubble”, the k2 relay reopens, the device light turns green again and the standard speed of the vehicle is restored.

 General information on use and assembly

The STS90A device should preferably be mounted on the topof the forklift. Both access control and collision control can be activated, even if the specific lifting limitation function does not require them.

Complete control thanks to the SafeTAp APP

Thanks to the STS cloud platform, all STS series devices and transmitters can be managed with our free Android application. With a phone or tablet it is possible to modify all the parameters of the devices: slowing down of vehicles in the area, anti-collision, pedestrian, door opener, traffic light signals, and much more!

Distances, times and all parameterisations of the individual devices can be conveniently set via the SafeTApp.

All devices and transmitters of the STS series, as well as the systems created with them, are NOT to be considered PPE (PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT) and DO NOT replace such devices which the user must be provided with according to legal provisions. However, they represent a valid aid to safety in all sectors.

The sale of STS systems is reserved only to specialized workshops in the sector.

Tamarri S.r.l. carries on concrete commitment to workplace safety. Thanks to the collaboration with DOT-net, Tamarri has developed a system which, together with various other characteristics, also has that of slowing down in the area! Find out more on the STS Platform website!

Act plural


Act plural. ”A dream you dream alone is only a dream, a dream you dream together is reality” – John Lennon

Act plural: collaboration and individuality

 To collaborate means to actively participate, to achieve the accomplishment of a task or the performance of an activity. Within the company, collaboration is fundamental, as a synergistic relationship between two or more entities working together. The main goal is to produce something better than what could be done alone.

“Collaboration,” however, should not be at odds with “Individuality.”

One of the most famous quotes about teamwork, attributed to Chicago Bulls assistant coach Tex Winter, states: “there is no ‘I’ in ‘team.'” It is also said that the star of that team, Michael Jordan, replied: “but there is an ‘I’ in ‘win.'”

Fact: there is no room for individualism in collaboration. But successful collaboration requires room for individuality, now more than ever, since working alone has become almost impossible.

Even we ourselves individually have an “internal team,” and we are like a team composed of several different personalities, with different interests and desires, even divergent ones.

Act plural: collaboration and empathy

The goal of the I-professional’s day, for example, may not coincide with that of the I-in-family. Each person is at his or her best if he or she is in balance with his or her own life, and so to collaborate means to contribute to each other’s balance.

To collaborate, especially today when technologies give us access to increasingly effective and pervasive tools of connection (the magic – unthinkable 15 years ago – of a videocall) and sharing (the agility of a shared working document), it then becomes also and above all a matter of empathy, a delicate interconnection of “fractals” between our “internal team” and the real “external teams” of which we are part.

Sharing a project goal is important but collaborating with someone to ensure that both ours and his or her more “subtle” wants and needs are gratified and enhanced is what makes all the difference in our (and others’) work-life balance.

The advice: collaborate more and better, with others and with yourself. In the age of sharing, it is not only projects and goals that are “shared,” but also people, their values, their sensitivities, their multiple desires: commit to making sure that everything comes out better, not just the outcome of the project. Because if you learn to respect other people’s time, others will learn to respect yours.

Act plural: ask yourself the right questions

What can I do concretely to facilitate the collaboration in my team?

How do I consider the “vital” needs and desires of the people I collaborate with?

What questions should I ask my colleagues to stimulate and enrich my and their ideas?

How do I assess my level of active listening? And how could I improve it?


Workout #1 – Technology to collaborate

For one week, follow some simple rules to collaborate with technology, not only to achieve a given goal but also to respect other people’s needs:

Transparency: share your schedule and have others share theirs with you.

Cleanliness: as often as you can, put a maximum of 3 people in knowledge copy of an email, to avoid multiplication of information that might take unnecessary attention from others.

Alignment: work on shared documents, to avoid unnecessary effort and wasted time (e.g., not to work in parallel on different versions of the same file).

Accuracy: send targeted and concise emails, 5-10 lines maximum, with an unambiguous subject line and content structure that can be understood immediately.

Empathy: send emails only at respectful hours (“sociable hours”), avoiding evenings and weekends, limiting yourself to communicating what the other person expects to know from you, or what is relevant to them.

Workout #2 – Collective intelligence

For one week, follow 7 simple rules to collaborate and create innovative solutions together with others that are the result of collective intelligence.

– Instead of “the Devil’s,” be “the Angel’s Advocate”: don’t undermine others’ ideas but encourage them to generate new ones by “raising” on their own (avoid “yes, but…” and use “yes, and…”).

Respect the brainstorming rules not only in dedicated sessions but in any time of sharing and exchanging ideas with other people. Separate the creative phase of idea generation (divergent phase) from judgment (convergent phase): when you are in the former, “surf” freely among other people’s ideas and, only in the latter, clearly and respectfully express your agreement or disagreement.

Facilitate collective thinking: connect and relate your ideas to others and those of others to each other (“your idea makes me think of…”)

Listen actively: ask your colleagues questions to understand better how and what they think. Involve, offer and ask for suggestions and advice.

Relativize: start with the assumption that your beliefs are a point of view, not an unbreakable dogma. Question yourself, invite others to challenge your ideas, and continually look for cues to improve your thinking with the help of others.

Eyes shut and focus on your breathing will help you get to sleep quickly.

No distractions: the phone’s “flight mode” is your best friend!

Tamarri: technology for empathy! 😉

Why install a camera on the forklift?

Almost all warehouses and industrial maneuvering areas are considered to be the stage of speed, dynamism and productivity. Safety in the day-to-day maneuvering of equipment and personnel is therefore ESSENTIAL.

Camera systems are designed to increase the performance and safety in maneuvering forklifts and industrial vehicles.

Ease of maneuvering in trucks and speed makes these devices essential in order to complement and optimize safety in the working environment.

A wide range of cameras, from wide-focus cameras installed for safe and reliable reversing, to front fork cameras to minimize impacts during pallet loading and unloading maneuvers.

An extremely valuable support, easy to install thanks to the WiFi communication of video signals, visible on the large onboard monitor.

Magnetic bumpers


Our bumpers are resistant to aging and perfectly visible.

Available in various sizes, they find countless applications. They can be applied to a wide variety of  surfaces thanks to their practical fixing holes already prepared at the origin or by means of powerful magnets.

With our SS141 bumper kits, replacing a no longer suitable bumper for preventing, limiting or cushioning the damage of a collision becomes simple and economical. It can also be combined with the TA36216 integrated sensor system.

Assisted parking systems are among the most popular aftermarket accessories in the automotive and material handling markets. However, installation is often complex and tedious. Thanks to our TA36216 “do-it-yourself kit”, installation is quick and easy. The robust and reliable control unit can be conveniently installed anywhere on the vehicle.

With Tamarri, safety is not an option! 👌
