Note: This page is for TCM 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 TCM forklift’s serial number is to check the data tag, also called a nameplate. The nameplate includes various information about your forklift–its weight, its model, how much it can lift, and more. Most importantly, the nameplate also lists the truck’s serial number. In general, a forklift nameplate looks like the image on the left, and on a TCM forklift it is commonly found around the dashboard, like in the image on the right: courtesy of OSHA
A serial number is very important when ordering TCM forklift parts for your forklift. But what if the nameplate has fallen off or worn down? Don’t panic. In many cases, a TCM forklift’s serial number can be found stamped somewhere on its frame. Below is a table of many different models of TCM forklifts and a set of reference figures. Use the table to determine which figure to use when looking for your TCM forklift’s serial number.
