If you own a forklift, you will eventually have to invest in some replacement forklift parts. Even the best maintenance can only forestall repairs and replacements for so long. Over time, you will need to locate high quality (preferably new) parts to keep your machine in top running condition.
Since the complete failure of certain forklift parts can lead to major accidents and downtime (i.e. brake failure can be catastrophic if it happens while a forklift is carrying a load or turning to avoid people), it is important to replace certain parts before they break down.
Of course, some parts last longer than others. The forklift parts that need more frequent replacement are usually those that experience the most wear and tear. Here are a few of the most commonly replaced forklift parts and some clues to watch out for that could signal your attention.
