Forklifts made in Canada

There have been a number of forklift manufacturers with factories in Canada throughout the years.  Canada, with its close proximity to the large American market, historically offered low labor rates and an highly educated workforce.   The exchange rate between the US dollar and the Canadian dollar were attractive in years past, prompting some forklift manufacturers to set up shop in Canada.

Here’s a brief history of forklift manufacturers with operations in Canada:

 

Clark Material Handling:  Opened a forklift factory in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada in 1956. Forklift production ended 1985. 

 

Blue Giant:  Brampton, Ontario forklift factory opens 1963.   Still open in 2017.

 

Hyster:   a discontinued Toronto Canada factory is mentioned in their forklift specification manual but it’s unclear when this facility was operating.

 

Liftking is a manufacturer of rough terrain forklifts based in Woodbridge, Ontario.

 

Raymond Corporation operated a manufacturing plant in Brampton, Ontario.    The plant was opened in 1966.  Forklift factory closed around 2010-2011 time frame.

 

Sellick:  Manufacturer of rough terrain forklifts.  Started in Ontario in 1969, continues on to this day.

 

Skyjack:  Manufacturer of aerial work platforms.  Started in 1969 in Ontario.

Dana Off-Highway Transmission Oil Specifications

 

Dana (also known as Clark) off-highway transmissions are used in a variety of different forklift brands.  Dana actually purchased the Clark division back in 1997 (over 20 years ago!) but the name Clark still lingers on.

Need Dana or Clark transmission parts? We can help – just click here

Recommended Lubricants for Dana/Clark Transmissions and Converters:

  • Preferred Oil Viscosity
    • See the chart below and base your lubricant based on the correct temperature
    • If more than one applies, pick the one that your temperature is closest to the middle in the range

      Oil Application Chart
  • Approvals: Make sure to use multi-viscosity lubricants
  • Not Approved: GL-5 and engine oils – use only lubricant specified for transmissions!
  • Sump Pre-Heaters: Transmission fluid needs to be heated to a specific temperature before use to make sure it is pumping with the correct viscosity.
  • During warm up, make sure to stay in neutral gear! Driving is not allowed with a full load until minimum sump temperature is reached.
  • Using synthetic fluids, oil service life may be longer. To determine each transmissions change interval, measure the metal wear and oil oxidation over time to figure out the baseline. Please remember that removal of the transmission based solely on checking the metal ware is not recommended.
  • Transmission lubricant should follow the specifications of one of the following:
    • Caterpillar TO-4
    • MIL-PRD-2104G
    • John Deere J20 C, D
    • Dexron IID or Dextrol III

Budget costs for a rebuilt forklift engine

Forklift smoking?  Think you need a new engine?  Here are some “ball park” estimates for the price of a remanufactured engine.  Keep in mind this does not include labor to replace engine, shipping costs or accessory parts such as new water pump, belts, filters, etc.

 

Prices below do not include labor.  Labor to install a remanufactured engine usually runs around 24 hours.  If your forklift has a cab (making it more difficult to remove the engine), you should add around 8 hours.   Labor usually runs anywhere from $75 – $140 per hour depending on where you are located.  In other words, labor can run anywhere from $1800 – $3360 plus the costs below.

 

Need more help trying to figure out if your old forklift is worth replacing?  Check out this article here.

 

GM  181  (used in Hyster and some limited Yale forklifts)  $3000-3300

GM 4.3 engine (used in Hyster, Yale, and Toyota forklifts)  $2400-2700

 

Mazda F2 engine (used in Yale and Hyster forklifts)  $3100-3350

Mazda FE engine (used in Yale and Hyster forklifts)  $2700-3000

 

Nissan H20 (used in Komatsu, TCM, and Nissan forklifts) $2000-2300

Nissan K21 or K25 (used in Nissan and Cat/MItsubishi forklifts)  $3000-3500

 

Mitsubishi 4G54 4G52 (used in Clark and Mitsubishi forklifts)  $3000-3200

Mitsubishi 4G63 4G64 (used in Clark, Cat, and Mitsubishi forklifts)  $2900-3200

 

Toyota uses its own 4Y engine in its heart of the line forklift models such as 8FGCU15, 8FGCU25.

Genie Scissor Lift Charger – stay juiced.

Your scissor lift takes a boat load of charged batteries to operate properly. For most of them, that number is four. These battery trays that hold the charging system are set up generally in the same way. Some trays have 4 batteries in a row, others in a 2 by 2 setup. Either way, they feature a 24V battery charger to keep the batteries in shape. A workhorse of the scissor lift, this battery charger needs to be in tip-top shape. When yours starts to get bogged down, do us a favor and check out Intella Liftparts. Intella offers a 24V Genie scissor lift charger capable of servicing many different scissor lifts. The charger will work on almost any scissor lift battery, including one of the most common brands, Trojan.

How old is my Toyota forklift? Toyota forklift year.

 

Toyota Forklift Year by Model Number

Decoding forklift model numbers can be difficult to begin with and it seems as though Toyota only makes it harder. Each year Toyota creates a model number with a different set of letters and numbers that all stand for something. These characters make up the engine type, construction features, any model changes, how it’s powered, the load capacity and more. The different characters in the model number are explained in the coding system below. In the example, there are 8 characters in the model number although the coding system shows 9 possible characters. For any empty spot like the one below, it means there is no information applicable to the forklift so you can simply skip that section.

Mazda Forklift Engine – 2.0L or 2.2L?

It’s never an easy job figuring out what kind of forklift engine you have. Even for a seasoned parts person, it can be troubling. This article will be covering the easiest way to identify your Mazda forklift engine whether it’s an FE, F2SA, or F2SM.Mazda Forklift Engine

 

The Mazda FE and F2SA engines are used by both Hyster and Yale. TCM uses the F2SA belt drive as well but more often uses the F2SM chain drive with a different type of cylinder head. All three of these engine styles  have either FE of F2 stamped into the corner of the deck on the engine block. The issue with this is that when an engine is resurfaced, the stampings get machined off of the block. Also it’s not the easiest task to find the tab on a hard-worked, dirty engines. The list below will breakdown the different engines so that you can properly identify what Mazda forklift engine you have.

 

Mazda FE – 2.0L Timing Belt

  • If you look at the plastic dust cover or on the inner plate behind the cam sprocket, 2.0L is casted.
  • There are three crankshaft variations, all of which are a shorter stroke than the F2.
    • Pin Type – 1″ crank nose with alignment dowel pin
    • Short Nose Keyed – 1″ crank nose with crank key
    • Long Nose Keyed – 1.9″ crank nose with wedge in hydraulic pump drive hub
  • The oil pump is set in the lower front of the engine. It has four oil pump bolts.
  • The FE engine uses only a belt tensioner.

 

Mazda F2SA – 2.2L Timing Belt

  • If you look at the plastic dust cover or on the inner plate behind the cam sprocket, 2.2L is casted.
  • There are two crankshaft variations, which have the same journal size with a longer stroke than the FE.
    • Short Nose Keyed – 1″ crank nose with crank key
    • Long Nose Keyed – 1.9″ crank nose with wedge in hydraulic pump drive hub
  • The oil pump is set in the lower front of the engine. It has three oil pump bolts.
  • The F2 uses both a belt tensioner and belt idler.

 

Mazda F2SM – 2.2L Timing Chain

  • Only one style crankshaft which has a different crank nose than all the other crankshafts listed. Keep in mind it does have the same stoke as the F2SA crankshaft.
  • The timing chain chain is in an aluminum front cover
  • TCM is the only brand that uses it
