When ordering Raymond forklift parts, having the correct serial number is crucial. The quickest way to find your Raymond forklift’s serial number is to check the forklift’s nameplate (also called a data plate or data tag). This useful little plate displays various details about your truck–how much it weighs, how much it can lift, its model, and (most importantly) its serial number. On a Raymond forklift, the nameplate is often found near the dashboard, like in the image to the left, and looks similar to the image on the below.
But what if your forklift’s nameplate has worn down or fallen off? Don’t worry just yet. A Raymond forklift’s serial number can sometimes be found physically stamped on its chassis. For Raymond trucks, this number is often located in the power section, usually under the controller. But beware: there are also shop work order numbers stamped on various places on the frame, which are not correct serial numbers. So, when you’re in dire need of your serial number and your nameplate isn’t cutting it, you now have another handy option. Just be careful when you’re looking all over your chassis not to mistakenly use any other numbers!
