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

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!

    1. Hi Roger, Many times the serial number is painted over. I would check for that first.

  3. Would you happen to know where to find the serial number on the frame for an Clark IT-60? The data plate is missing.

    1. Did you check the frame of the forklift itself? They’re usually stamped right on the left side of the frame as well. Unfortunately, these are the only two ways to find that information.
