Although they serve very different purposes, both the starter and alternator are critical components of a forklift's electrical system. A forklift alternator powers the equipment accessories and is an integral part of the electrical charging system. A starter motor provides the power needed to turn the engine over. There are different types of starters, and each one operates in a slightly different way. These include offset gear reduction, permanent magnet - direct drive or gear reduction, and direct drive. Starters designed for automobiles will fit but won’t last in forklifts. Reason? Forklift engines are turned off/on many times per day, sometimes nearly 100 times per day. Automobile starters are typically only used a few times per day. Make sure you order a starter designed for a forklift.
