Where do I find my Clark forklift’s serial number?

Note: This page is for Clark forklifts only. To find a serial number for a forklift of a different brand, click here for our other guides.

The quickest way to find your Clark forklift’s serial number is to check the forklift’s data tag (also called a data plate or nameplate). This useful plaque displays various details about your lift–its model, how much it weighs, how much it can lift, and (most importantly) its serial number. If you have a Clark forklift parts catalog for your machine, the serial number will also be printed on the front cover.  On a Clark forklift, the nameplate looks like the image to the right and is often found near the dashboard or the seat, like in the image to the left:

Don’t panic. A Clark forklift’s serial number can be found physically stamped right on its frame. Often, this number is stamped in the left-hand frame member of the chassis. For example, to the right is the frame stamp from the forklift shown above. So, if you’re in dire need of your serial number and your nameplate is out of commission, remember to check the body of your truck too!
