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

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

The most direct way to find your Hyster forklift’s serial number is to check the nameplate (also called a data tag). This helpful little plate includes lots of various information about your forklift–how much it can lift, how much it weighs, which model it is, and (most importantly) its serial number. On a Hyster forklift, the nameplate looks like the photo on the left and is often found near the dashboard, like in the photo on the right:

Checking the nameplate is the quickest and easiest method of discerning the serial number of your forklift. But what if the nameplate wears down or has fallen off? You’re not out of luck just yet. Sometimes, a forklift’s serial number can be found in its electronic system or physically stamped on its frame. Below is a list of many different models of Hyster forklifts and where their serial numbers can be found.

  3. I am looking for parts manual or service manual for what appears to be a Hyster 195a- d. the only tag found. This is an older fork lift either 8000 lb or 20000 lb. unit, more than likely a 8000 lb. It has lost the power steering pump, poor hydraulic pump pressure. All cylinders have been rebuilt and seem to function with out leaks but very slow.

  6. I have a hyster H50XM fork lift. I’m trying to determine engine and part numbers for tune up parts (plugs, wires, cap, button). Not sure if it has GM or Mazda engine. Here is the serial number: D177B03623P. It runs on propane. Do you have any idea what year it is and what engine is in it? On the top of the valve cover there is an I.D. Plate with this part number 1356547 I assume this is the engine part number.
