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

Note: This page is for Yale 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 Yale forklift’s serial number is to check the nameplate (also called a data tag). This helpful little plate displays various information about your forklift–its lifting capacity, its model, how much it weighs, and (most importantly) its serial number. On a Yale forklift, the nameplate looks like the picture on the left and is often found somewhere near the dashboard, like the picture 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 has fallen off or worn down? Don’t worry. In many cases, a Yale forklift’s serial number can be found in its electronic system or physically stamped somewhere on its frame. Below is a list of many different models of Yale forklifts and where their serial numbers can be found, sorted into categories of walkies (pedestrian jacks) and riders. Some also list where their nameplates can be found.
