Q: What lubricants do I use in my Toyota forklift?

A: It depends. Using the wrong lubricating fluids on your forklift can damage the truck and put the truck’s operator in danger. Check below for the correct fluid specs for various models of Toyota 7 and 8 series trucks. But first, here’s a short explanation of some abbreviations that you might come

 API = American Petroleum Institute classification. The API classifies lubricants based on performance level and series. Read more about what those classifications mean here.

•  SAE = Society of Automotive Engineers classification. This is a classification based on the viscosity of the lubricant.

 ISO VG = International Standardization Organization viscosity grade. This is another measure of the viscosity of the lubricant.

Models covered

•  7FGU15, 7FGU20, 7FGU25, 7FGU30, 7FGU32

•  7FDU15, 7FDU20, 7FDU25, 7FDU30, 7FDU32

•  7FGCU15, 7FGCU20, 7FGCU25, 7FGCU30, 7FGCU32

•  7FGCU15,  7FGCU15,  7FGCUSU20

•  8FGU15, 8FGU20, 8FGU25, 8FGU30, 8FGU32

•  8FDU15, 8FDU20, 8FDU25, 8FDU30, 8FDU32

•  8FGCU15, 8FGCU20, 8FGCU25, 8FGCU30, 8FGCU32

•  8FGCU15,  8FGCU15,  8FGCUSU20

Lubricants needed for each part

 gasoline engine = motor oil; SAE30 or SAE5w-30; API: SH, SJ, SL, SM

•  diesel engine = diesel engine oil; SAE30 or SAE5w-30; API: CE, CF, CF-4

 transmission = GM Dexron® II

 differential = hypoid gear oil; SAE85W-90; API: GL-4

•  hydraulic oil = ISO VG 32

 brake line = SAE J-1703, DOT-3

•  brake cooling oil = Shell DONAX TD

•  chassis parts = MP grease; molybdenum disulfide grease
