Why Forklift Propane Tank Brackets are Useful

Compressed gases and be very dangerous. By law, certain gas tanks, such as welding gas tanks, have to be chained to something in a building. If they are not chained to the building, in the event of a fire, the tanks turn into missiles and will kill firefighters. Brackets can help prevent this from happening. By securing the tank to a building, or forklift, tanks will be prevent from getting loose and causing damage.

Fake forklift part numbers

Since the mid-1980s various forklift manufacturers have had aftermarket parts programs featuring parts for competitive brands.  The Hyster Company came out with Unisource in the early 1980s, Caterpillar following with Promatch in 1988, and most other forklift OEMs jumped on board in the 90s or early 2000s.

Names of the aftermarket parts programs from certain OEMs:

Hyster:  In North America they called the program “Unisource”, in Europe they called the program Multiquip.

Caterpillar:  PROMATCH

Clark: Totallift

Crown: One Source

Nissan:  Duralift

Mitsubishi:  Mastersource (then recently, Promatch)

Yale:  Premier parts program

Raymond:  Raymond Z program, OTR program (other-than-Raymond)

Toyota: STAR lift program

So what are “fake” OEM parts numbers?

We call forklift part numbers that are for competitive brands of equipment “fake” part numbers.   You might have a Hyster number that appears to be a part number but in reality it’s for another brand forklift.  It’s one of their aftermarket part numbers.
Here’s a guide to “fake” part numbers:

Hyster:  8 digit part numbers that start with a 3 are Unisourcd aftermarket part numbers for non Hyster forklifts.  Example: 3002381
Caterpillar/Mitsubishi: Part numbers in the following ranges: 0971001-0973999, part numbers starting with 2I or 9I like 2I5326, 10 digit part numbers that start with A like A000006449
Clark:  6 digit numbers that start with 44 like 444817 or 7 digit part numbers that start with 70 like 7004042

Toyota: Starlift numbers often begin with 005 like this 00590-01362-71

Yale part numbers are always 9 digits long.  Yale forklift part numbers that start with 22 are Premier aftermarket program part numbers like this one:  220034232

What It Means

So what does it mean if you’ve stumbled on a part number like this?  It means the part doesn’t really fit the brand it’s labelled with.  It’s simply an aftermarket part, marketed by a particular forklift brand, which fits not that brand but a competitive brand.  Sort of like if Chevy started selling parts for Toyota.

How to Paint a Forklift

Need help deciding which paint you need? Click here!

Why It is Important to Know How to Paint a Forklift

Knowing how to properly paint a forklift is crucial for maintaining the structure and integrity of the surface. This article will outline how to properly paint a forklift.

how to paint a forklift

Overall Principles

  1. Surface Preparation is Crucial

    Coating performance and longevity is directly related to surface preparation. Approximately 80% of all coating failures can be attributed to improper surface preparation. Choosing which method to use to prepare the surface is dependent on surface material, current paint, pain going to be used, and environment.

  2. Previously Coated Surfaces

    All previous contamination, such as oil, grease, loose paint, dirt, and overall foreign contaminants, needs to be removed before applying a new coat of paint.

  3. Touch-Up, Maintenance, and Repair

    In order for a proper coating to last a long time, scheduled maintenance must be performed to maintain coat integrity. This includes, but is not limited to: inspection of painted areas, removing oils, removing foreign chemicals, and removing all other foreign contaminants.

Removing Previous Coats & SSPC/NACE Standards

  1. SSPC-SP-1 Solvent Cleaning

    This is a method that removes all visible oil, grease, soil, drawing and all other foreign contaminants. Click here to learn more.

  2. SSPC-SP-2 Hand Tool Cleaning

    This method removes all loose mill scale, rust, and other foreign matter. Before using this method, remove all oil, grease, welding residues, and salts. Click here to learn more.

  3. SSPC-SP-3 Power Tool Cleaning

    Similarly to the previous method, Power Tool Cleaning helps remove loose mill scale, rust, and other foreign matter. In that sense, Power Tool Cleaning is nearly identical to the Hand Tool Cleaning method. Click here to learn more.

  4. Blast Cleaning

    The following methods remove all oil, grease, dirt, dust, mill scale, rust, pain, and oxides should all be removed making them extremely effective methods.

    1. SSPC-SP5/NACE1 White Metal Blast Cleaning
    2. SSPC-SP6/NACE3 Commercial Blasting Cleaning
    3. SSPC-SP7/NACE4 Brush-Off Blast Cleaning
    4. SSPC-SP10/NACE2 Near-White Blast Cleaning
  5. SSPC-SP12/NACE5 High and Ultra-High

    This method utilizes high and ultra-high water pressure water jetting to remove various foreign material.

How to Replace Forklift Mast Rollers

Purpose

This article will outline how to accurately and efficiently calculate which mast and carriage rollers are needed for a specific model in addition to answering how to replace forklift mast rollers. This includes: mast model, bearing part number, outer diameter size.

Installing Lift Bracket Rollers (for all mast models)

To disassemble, follow the sequence in reverse.

reassembly mast

Sequence:

1. Lift Bracket2. Lift bracket upper rollers3. Lift bracket middle rollers
4. Lift bracket lower rollers5. Side rollers6. Inner Mast

Definitions

Clearance G: clearance between roller side surface and inner mast thrust surface. This is used to determine the amount of shims at the bearing seat. Measure Clearance G between the side of the surface of the roller and inner mast. Measurement range: 0.1 to 0.5 mm (0.004 to 0.020 in.)

Clearance F: clearance between roller circumference and inner mast thrust surface. This is used to determine the proper size of the rollers. Measurement Range: 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) or less

Clearance G1: clearance between side roller circumference and inner mast side roller thrust surface. Measurement Range: 0.1 to 0.5 mm (0.004 to 0.020 in.)

Instructions

  1. Choosing Correct Roller Diameters

    Measure clearance F for upper roller 2, middle roller 3, and lower roller 4. If not in the range, replace the rollers. The rollers should function smoothly.

  2. Adjusting clearance G between the middle roller and thrust plate

    Measure clearance G between the middle roller and thrust plate. If not in the measurement range, adjust clearance G.

    If clearance G is too high, increase the thickness of shims, and vice versa.

  3. Adjusting clearance G between lower rollers and inner mast

    Measure clearance G between the lower rollers and inner mast. Adjust clearance G as described in the previous point.

  4. Installing main rollers

    Use a driving tool to properly install main rollers on shafts. Do not strike the outer roller surface while installing.

  5. Adjusting clearance G1 between the side roller and inner mast

    Measure the clearance of G1 between the side roller’s rolling contact surface and inner mast. If the measure is not in the range mentioned above, adjust the clearance in the following manner: if G1 clearance is excessive, increase the thickness of the shims and vice versa.

Diagram describing how to install main rollers

How to Replace Forklift Mast Rollers (for all mast models)

install mast rollers

Instructions

  1. Measure clearance F between the rollers’ contact surface and masts

    If this value is not in the range (1.0 mm / 0.04in, or less), replace with rollers with the correct diameters listed in the table below (figure 1)

  2. Measure clearance G between the rollers and the masts

    If the measured clearances exceeds the range (0.1 to 0.5mm, 0.004 to 0.020 in.)

All mast rollers are identical in shape and size. Thus, clearance F should be 1.0 mm (0.04 in.) or less and clearance G should be 0.1 to 0.5 mm (0.004 to 0.020 in.). If the measured clearances are incorrect, replace the rollers with the correct diameters listed in the below in figure 1.

If measured value clearance G exceeds the standard value, increase the thickness of shims (e) – (j). Standard values can be seen here:

Item1 ton class (mm)2, 3 ton classes (mm)
Shim (e)21
Shim (f)21
Shim (g)11
Shim (h)21
Shim (i)21

How to Calculate Forklift Capacity With Attachments

Calculating the forklift capacity is critical for safely and efficiently operating equipment. To start, let’s define what load center is of a forklift. The load center is the horizontal distance from the center of mass to the forklift itself, or, in simpler terms, the middle of the load.

forklift capacity load center
The load center is located where the arrow is pointing

The load center is relevant as it specifies how far you can place your mass before the forklift will be over in either direction.

Calculate Forklift Capacity

To start, each lift truck is given specific ratings that specify relevant information, these are typically found on the truck name plate. This same principle applies for attachments. The first rating will give the maximum fork height, and the second rating will give the increased capacity amount at a lower fork height.

Each attachment is given a reduction factor that is to be used to calculate the forklift capacity.

Example 1: The image below gives an example of a capacity name plate where the information is already filled out. The attachment that is applied has a reduction factor of 1,500 lbs. Given that the original maximum capacity, without the attachment, is 8,000 lbs, we simply do 8,000 – 1,500 = 6,000 lbs to calculate forklift capacity with the attachment.

forklift capacity name plate
Capacity name plate

Example 2: Technical data sheets give very helpful information as to how to calculate the capacity. Let’s say you add a paper roll clamp on a gas, cushion tire, 6,000 lb. truck that has a mass of 102/228. This would bring us to the last row of the technical data sheet.

The capacity with forklift forks is 4,150 lbs (24″ load center, 228″ fork height) and a rated capacity of 6,000 lbs (24″ load center, 228″ height). For this scenario, let’s say it is given that the reduction factor for a 6,000 lb truck is 1,700 lbs. Because there are more than one rated capacities, you take the lowest after applying the reduction factor. 6,000 – 1700 = 4,300 lbs and 4,150 – 1700 = 2,250
