How Much Does Your Articulating Boom Lift Weigh?

What’s the weight of your articulating boom lift? Articulating boom lifts are very useful for getting to high places in a quiet and smooth manner. The operating weight is key to know as it determines what angles are feasible and how much weight can be put onto the platform. Operating weight measures how much the machinery actually weighs. This information is useful for, as said above, how high you can go with your articulating boom lift and what angles you can use. It also is useful for transportation and what kind of vehicle is needed to transport one.

How much does your telehandler weigh?

What’s the weight of your telehandler? This is a question that can be quite difficult to figure out, yet a vital one to know. The weight of your telehandler has a direct relationship with its respective lifting capacity. The higher the weight of your telehandler, the more you can lift. With that being said, the angle of which the boom of the telehandler is situated at can also affect the lift capacity. The lower the degree of your boom, the less you can lift. For example, if the boom is completely parallel with the ground, your telehandler can lift as little as 400lbs (180kg). If the angle of the boom is 60°, your telehandler could lift potentially 10,000lbs (4535kg), yet again, the lift capacity depends on the operation weight of your telehandler. 

Below is a list a list of operational weights for telehandlers. This list will include telehandlers that are produced by big manufacturers. These brands include: Genie; Cat; JLG; Skytrak; JCB. Some common telehandlers and their operational weights are listed below.

Genie GTH-1056

Q: How much does a Genie GTH-1056 telehandler weigh?

A: 30,000 lbs; 13,608 kg.

Q: How much does a Genie GTH-5519 telehandler weigh?

A: 10,000 lbs; 4,536 kg.

Q: How much does a Cat TL1055 telehandler weigh?

A: 34,700 lbs; 15,739.66 kg.

ZF off-highway transmission parts

ZF transmissions can be found in a variety of brands of equipment including Hyster, Kalmar, JLG, SkyTrak, Gehl, Hyundai, and many others. Need ZF parts? You’ve come to the right place. ZF transmissions are made in Germany and since we’re part of a European company, we can get your ZF parts quick. We offer 2 and 3 day transit time on ZF parts direct from Europe at super competitive prices.


It can be confusing when you hear the ZF name for the first time. In the United States, we pronounce Z like “zee” so most Americans would say ZF like “Zee Eff”. In Canada and the UK, it’s pronounced “Zed eff”. We’ve even seen ZF spelled differently too! We’ve received emails where customers ask for “Zeteff” parts, Zed-f transmission parts, Zedeff transmissions, and even others.


Where do I find ZF serial number tag?

ZF serial number tags are on the side of the ZF transmission.  They’re typically fairly easy to find.  The older your equipment is, the more likely the tag may be damaged.  ZF refers to this tag as the “model identification plate”.  It contains all the information required to order spare parts for the ZF transmission.

What do ZF parts manuals look like?

What ZF transmissions are used in forklifts and aerial lifts?


JLG/Skytrak have used the 4 WG 98 model from ZF


Hyster/Yale have used a variety of different ZF models.  Hyster/Yale formerly used Dana/Clark transmissions but switched to ZF in recent years.  Models include 3 WG 201 as well as WG 211, WG161, and others.


Hyundai Forklifts have used 3 WG 94 ZF models and others.

Forklift filters

Want to learn about forklift filters?  Every forklift has filters that need to be routinely changed!  But not all forklifts have the same filters…and not all filters have to be changed in the same interval.


Forklift Engine Oil Filters

forklift filters
Typical forklift oil filter

Most forklift manufacturers will state in their service manuals that engine oil filters need to be changed every 500 hours.  A simple way of keeping track of when you last changed your forklift filter is to write the hour meter reading when you changed the filter and the date on the filter itself.  If your forklift is run less than 500 hours, the filter should be changed at least once per year.

Forklift Air Filters

A general rule of thumb is to check the air filter in your forklift each time you change the oil.  So if you are changing the engine oil filter every 500 hours, you should be checking the air filter at the same time.  There are a bunch of tips on checking air filters here.

Transmission Forklift Filters

You will want to check your forklift’s transmission filter and fluid every 500 hours.  Filters and fluids should be replaced every 2000 hours.


Hydraulic Filters – in line

forklift hydraulic filter
Typical in line hydraulic filter

Forklift hydraulic filters should be changed every 2000 hours.  Again, they should be checked every 500 hours and it does depend largely on the type of application you are running.  Dirty and dusty applications require more frequent filter changes.

Hydraulic Filters – sump

Same story on these guys.  Check them every 500 hours, replace them every 2000 hours, depending on how dirty your environment is.

forklift overhead guards

Forklift overhead guards – order online

Forklift overhead guards are very important safety devices which are used on every forklift.  When damaged, they need to be replaced.  Intella Liftparts offers competitive pricing on new and used forklift overhead guards.  We can offer new overhead guards at competitive prices AND we can provide used overhead guards.

forklift overhead guard used


Used forklift overhead guards come from forklifts which are retired and being “scrapped” for parts.  Often these forklifts will be too costly to maintain but the overhead guard still will be in good condition.  Do you need to obtain a price on a used forklift overhead guard?  Please provide the make, model, and serial number from your forklift.  That information can be found on the forklift data tag.   Once you have that information, please call us at 616-796-1288 or email us with the information.




OSHA has a number of rules on forklift overhead guards which can be found here.  The short answer is that OSHA requires overhead guards on forklifts and it’s not acceptable to remove the overhead guard permanently.  The general rule of thumb for OSHA requirements on safety items on forklifts is this:  if the safety device was included on the forklift when it was originally manufactured, that safety device needs to stay on the forklift and shouldn’t be removed.


Need any of these overhead guards?  We can help.  Used overhead guards are priced on an as-needed basis, availability often changes quickly.  Hyster 1599204, Hyster 1599205, Hyster 1599203, Toyota 51601-U2162-71, Yale 550046736.


Below is a photo of a used overhead guard we recently sold.  As you can see, there’s a bit of rust on the top but it’s still perfectly suitable.  The price of this OHG new was over $4000!  This used forklift overhead guard sold for around half–$2200.00

Common questions about forklift overhead guards:

Question: Can I replace my forklift overhead guard with any forklift overhead guard?  Are they universal?

Answer:  No.  Each forklift overhead guard is custom designed to the make and model of each particular forklift.


Question:  Can I replace only certain components of the overhead guard?  For example, I just want to replace one leg of the overhead guard.

Answer:  Usually no, unless the manufacturer designed it that way.  A few manufacturers design their forklift overhead guards to bolt together: the four legs are bolted to a top ‘ceiling’ frame.  It’s a great design because it’s simple to replace one leg in the future but unfortunately most forklift manufacturers built their overhead guards as one welded piece and you have to replace the entire overhead guard.


Question:  are aftermarket forklift overhead guards available?

Answer:  We offer a few aftermarket forklift overhead guards.  They are rare and if you are looking to save money on a replacement overhead guard, a used overhead guard is often the best option.


Question:  How much do forklift overhead guards cost?

Answer:  New forklift overhead guards range from around $1200 – $3000, depending on the size of the forklift and the brand of the forklift.  Used forklift overhead guard prices depend on availability, age, and brand of the forklift but they are typically half or two-thirds the price of new.  Contact us at 616-796-1288 and we can help with your forklift overhead guard problem!

Toyota 8 Series New Transmissions

Toyota forklift transmission

Toyota forklift transmission

Toyota forklift transmissions are made by Aisin Company. They’re actually built in an Aisin plant in Indiana so even though Toyota is a Japanese company, they have American built transmissions.

The forklift transmission part number 32010-U2260-71 is used in Toyota’s serial G851 forklifts. That’s Toyota-speak for the following forklift models which you would see on your forklift data tag:
8FDU20 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FDU25 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU30 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU32 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU20 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU25 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU30 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU32 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)

This is pretty much the heart of the line forklift transmission for Toyota  forklifts built in the last ten years. Intella can supply this transmission either new or remanufactured
