Continual maintenance of industrial vehicles like forklifts are a must for business to run smoothly. Replacing specific parts on electric and internal combustion forklifts is important for operator safety, productivity, and efficiency. Let’s learn more about forklift repair and the most commonly replaced parts.
Just like any truck or SUV, forklifts require that certain parts and components be replaced on a continuous basis. Starting off with commonly known parts, such as power steering hoses and rubber parts.
These should be replaced every 2 years or 4,000 hours. Machine usage must be measured adequately and on a daily basis to gauge when repair or replacement is needed.
Other important parts of this machine are a reservoir tank hose, wheel cylinder rubber parts, master cylinder rubber parts, and hydraulic hose. Each of these parts needs to be replaced or at least considered for repair after a year or 2,000 hours. Lastly, the lift chain is an essential component that needs to be replaced every 3 years or 6,000 hours.
