 Forklift Parts – Who Knew Some Parts Could Be So Popular?

Maybe not the high school quarterback, but almost just as popular, these forklift parts are some of the most sought out products here at Intella. This week’s blog from your favorite parts dealer will be discussing the most searched upon terms. What’s everyone really looking for when clicking on that trusty Google Search bar? Well keep reading to find out!

Intella Forklift Blue Light

When working with heavy and possibly dangerous products, I’ve always been told safety first. This principle seems to hold true as the Intella Blue Spot Light is one of the most searched about forklift parts we sell here at the Intella headquarters. Since 2012, we’ve actually sold more blue lights than anyone else in the USA. Not bad I’d say, but it’s not our marketing department doing the work. These Blue Spot Lights really speak for themselves. They are UL listed and created for the toughest of environments, built with a metal casing and stainless steel hardware. Not to mention you can use this light on almost any forklift, whether electric, LPG or diesel powered. This LED light is also extremely long life, with a span greater than 20,000 hours.

*Maybe you just drank 3 pots of coffee and 2 Red Bulls one Friday afternoon and decide you want to jump the loading dock with your forklift. Well here’s some good news since this stunt will probably end with bad news; the Blue Spot has a 12 month warranty so we’ll replace it for you (just not the rest of the forklift).

Tie Rod (includes bearing and nut)

Your forklift’s engine can be in great working condition for years on end. This is great! Unfortunately, the rest of the forklift does not have the same capability. Every time you use your steering wheel (nearly every time you use your forklift), it puts stress on the tie rod ends. So as you can see, they must be replaced over time due to wear and tear. This tie rod end is a direct replacement for Hyster part number 185870. This part also includes the bearing and nut needed for proper assembly.

Intella Single Phase 36V/140A Lift Truck Battery Charger

If you don’t have a working battery, it’s a safe assumption that you aren’t going to be moving very far and if you can’t move, neither will your product. With a quality battery charger this problem can be diminished. Coming up 3rd for the most sought out forklift parts would be this 36 volt 140 amp single phase charger.

Tech:
• Charging profile suitable for single and double shift operations
• Automatic equalizing/preservation
• Charging profile control by microprocessor
• Automatic start, charging process and shut off
• Advanced visualization by 5 LED’s /Date storage memory
• External optional keypad for programming and diagnostic.
• Delayed start to avoid sparks

12-24V LED Worklamp

It’s time to brighten up your day with this high performance LED work light. It’s no wonder these are such a popular product here at Intella. With 5 LED’s putting out 1050 lumens, you can really boost your workplace productivity. This light is easy to install and remove from your lift truck. A clear acrylic lens protect the LED’s along with a black painted aluminum shell. This light can be operated within a range of 12 volts to 24 volts.

Blue forklift light @ ProMat 2015 and day 2 observations

At Promat 2015 we demonstrated our BlueSpot® Safety Light which has been a hit since we introduced it in 2012.  Yep, you read that right.  We sold our first blue forklift light in late 2012!

Our model 01291296 features stainless steel hardware and it’s UL listed.  It’s IP67 rate which means it is suitable for outdoor wet applications as well as indoor settings.

If you stopped by our booth you would have seen 8 of these in operation– we had LOTS of blue spots on the floor in front of our booth!

In addition to the BlueSpots we displayed, we also displayed a red version of the blue forklift light.  Check out the floor in the image below and look at all the different lights.  If you look carefully, you’ll see 4 lights mounted on the walls, 2 lights on the Hyster forklift, and 3 more lights on the black counter.

ProMat’s second day, Tuesday March 24, 2015 started with a bang!  Doors opened early as there was a huge crowd awaiting in the McCormick Place foyer.

ProMat 2015 featured nearly 500,000 square feet of exhibits.  Intella has been at ProMat since the 2011 show and this was definitely the biggest ProMat in as many years.

 

The ProMat show covers all aspects of material handling.  Forklift manufacturer booths are fairly large but fairly straight forward.  Most forklift OEMs feature a large number of their models on the floor along with some chairs/bar area.

It’s interesting seeing the new models of forklifts, wondering what the forklifts will looking like after they’ve been used for a number of years and needing replacement forklift parts.

 

Conveyor and material handling systems companies tend to have the largest, most elaborate booths at ProMat.  Here’s a picture of one company’s booth: the operating conveyor runs beneath the 2nd story of the booth.

Forklift Blue Light – FAQ | Forklift Safety Light

Note: Buy the forklift blue light online now!

 

We get a ton of questions on the blue forklift safety light, our BlueSpot®.  Here are some common questions along with answers:

What makes your blue light better than others?

– It’s UL listed (most are not).  If you operate a UL listed forklift and install a non-UL listed accessory you will void the UL rating of your forklift

– Stainless steel hardware

– Integrated wire harness (no custom AMP connectors required)

– Polycarbonate lens – suitable for food manufacturing environments

– IP 67 rated – suitable for wet environments

– metal case (compare to others with plastic case)

– beefy, heavy duty 2.3 pound construction

What voltages are offered?  Our part number 01291296 comes in 9 through 96 volts DC.

How do you wire the Blue spot into the forklift?

You can wire the lamp into a rear work light circuit or strobe circuit.  Depends if you want the lamp to always be on or only in reverse.    Customers have told us that they pigtail into existing reverse/tail lights on forklifts.    The amp draw a VERY low 0.52 amp @ 12 volts.  (it’s an LED light!)

 Does the light stay on only in reverse?

This really depends how you connect the light to the forklift.  We recommend that the lamp automatically turns on whenever the key switch is on.  It’s sure to attract attention if the forklift is going forward or backwards.   We recommend that a professional forklift mechanic install the blue spot.

What other colors are available? 

We offer blue and red versions.

How bright is the beam of light?  The blue spot has an effective lumen rating of 33 lumens.  It’s designed to be a bright blue spot even in the brightest factory–white lights on a white floor, for example.

How far does the BlueSpot® shine?

BlueSpot® can be angled in a bunch of different positions.  On most forklifts, the blue spot around 7-8 feet behind the forklift.  The distance depends on the angle mounted.

How do you mount the blue spot to the lift truck?

They are usually mounted on the overhead guard.  Many forklifts have holes pre-drilled in the overhead guard for work lights, you can use one of those holes.

Is there a pulse setting so it can flash a bit?  No, it just projects the beam on the ground for people to see.
