How to Replace Load Wheels

The load wheels of a machine are primarily responsible for carrying the load, and typically carry the braking system making them a vital component of its respective machine, thus making it important to replace load wheels when needed. Depending on the material that your machine drives on will determine what type of material is needed.

Common materials include the following: polyurethane, nylon, steel and rubber. In addition to material type, level of hardness is also a key attribute. With these components comes a difficult decision: which material do I need for MY machinery?

Load Wheels By Brand

Out of convenience, Intella separates them by brand of forklift. We offer load wheels for the following brands: Yale, Clark, Hyster, Toyota, Crown, Raymond, and CAT.

Why Buy?

All of these forklift brands–Yale, Clark, Hyster, Toyota, Crown, Raymond, CAT— don’t manufacture their own load wheels, so when you buy from Intella, you’re most likely buying from the same suppliers as them ensuring that the load wheel you purchase fits the model you use. Intella also offers the best parts prices across the internet!

How to Replace a Toyota Forklift Seat

A worn out seat is no fun, especially if you’re expected to sit in it for multiple continuous hours. Luckily, Intella offers a selection of replacement seats, and this blog will outline how to replace a Toyota forklift seat.

Toyota forklifts with model numbers that begin with 6 or 7 (like 6FGCU25 or 7FGCU25) use unique seats custom designed for Toyota. Intella offers aftermarket replacements for these seats. There are no replacement cushions available for these seats because of the design of the seat.

How to Replace Your Forklift Seat Yourself

It’s super easy to replace a Toyota forklift seat yourself, all you need are a socket set and a little mechanical ability.

Swing out the LPG tank. There’s a latch on the back near the tank which will allow you to swing it out.

Toyota 8 Series New Transmissions

New or Remanufactured, We Have Both

A Little History

Toyota forklift transmissions are made by Aisin Company. They’re actually built in an Aisin plant in Indiana so even though Toyota is a Japanese company, they have American built transmissions.

The forklift transmission part number 32010-U2260-71 is used in Toyota’s serial G851 forklifts. That’s Toyota-speak for the following forklift models which you would see on your forklift data tag:

8FDU20 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FDU25 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU30 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU32 with a diesel 1DZ engine
8FGCU20 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU25 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU30 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)
8FGCU32 with a 4Y engine (gas, LPG, or CNG)

This is pretty much the heart of the line forklift transmission for Toyota  forklifts built in the last ten years. Intella can supply this transmission either new or remanufactured, along with other toyota forklist parts you may need. Check out Intella Parts’ transmission remanufacturing process.

What Year is My Toyota Forklift? Toyota Vin Lookup

Toyota Forklift Year by Model Number

Decoding forklift model numbers can be difficult to begin with and it seems as though Toyota only makes it harder. Each year Toyota creates a model number with a different set of letters and numbers that all stand for something that can help you determine your Toyota forklift year. These characters make up the engine type, construction features, any model changes, how it’s powered, the load capacity and more. The different characters in the model number are explained in the coding system below. In the example, there are 8 characters in the model number although the coding system shows 9 possible characters. For any empty spot like the one below, it means there is no information applicable to the forklift so you can simply skip that section.

Note: You can find a vast array of Toyota forklift radiators here.

Toyota Forklift Serial Number Lookup: Where Do I Find It?

Related Article: What year is my Toyota forklift?

Note: This page is for Toyota forklifts only. To find a serial number for a forklift of a different brand, click here for our other guides.

Direct Way

The most direct way to find your Toyota forklift’s serial number is to check the nameplate (also called a data tag). This helpful little plate includes various information about your forklift–its lifting capacity, its weight, its model, and (most importantly) its serial number (also called a frame, chassis, or car number). On a Toyota forklift, the nameplate looks like the image to the left (ignore the blue circle), and it is commonly found somewhere near the dashboard of the forklift, like in the image to the right:

Toyota forklift's serial number
Toyota forklift's serial number

Serial numbers are critical for ordering the correct parts for forklifts. But what if your forklift’s nameplate has fallen off or worn down? How do you find your serial number then? Don’t panic. In many cases, a Toyota forklift’s serial number can be found physically stamped somewhere on its frame. Below is a table of many different models of Toyota forklifts and a set of reference figures. Use the table to determine which figure to use when looking for your Toyota forklift’s serial number. Check out Figure 8 for an example of how your serial number stamp may look.

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

Q: How often should you change oil in a forklift? 

A: Every 250 hours, give or take. 

Q: What fluid levels need to be checked before using the forklift?

A: Fuel, oil coolant, brake fluid, and hydraulic

How much does a forklift weigh?

How much does a forklift weigh? It’s important to know the weight of your forklift when transporting it, driving it on trailers, moving it in an elevator, or using it in multi-story buildings. You don’t want your forklift to drop through the floor, causing thousands of dollars of damage and injuring workers!

The service weight of a forklift is different from its lift capacity.  Service weight refers to the actual weight of the forklift, including its battery and any attachments it has.  The best place to find the service weight of a forklift is on the forklift’s data tag.  Alternatively, you can search forklift manufacturer websites for product specification pages, but the truck’s data tag is typically preferred over this option. In addition, an industry rule of thumb is that the service weight of the forklift will generally be 1.5 to 2 times the lifting capacity of the forklift.  For example, if your forklift can lift 5,000 pounds, generally the weight of the forklift will be somewhere between 7,500 and 10,000 pounds.  But remember, this is simply a rough standard, and manufacturer information or the forklift’s data tag should always be prioritized.

See below for the weight of some of the most common models of the most widely-used forklift brands. The downloadable table lists the weight in pounds of Hyster, Komatsu, Crown, Toyota, Caterpillar, Yale, Clark, and Nissan forklift models. For starters, here are the weights of the most common models from these manufacturers.

Q: How much does a Hyster H50FT forklift weigh?

A: 8,924 lbs.  (with NL; 3-stage, 189″ mast height)

Decoding Model Numbers: Toyota Forklift Engine Identification

Q: How do I decode my Toyota forklift model number?

A: There’s no denying it: Toyota forklift model numbers can be complicated. Each class of Toyota lift truck has a model number of a different length and is interpreted in a different way. Things can get confusing. Hopefully, however, the diagrams below may help in properly reading your Toyota forklift model number.

This diagram includes information for forklifts of classes I, II, II stand-up electric rider, III, IV, and V. Notice that there are nine sections on the diagram, but not all classes have information in their model numbers for each section. In these cases, the sections that are “not present” for your forklift’s class are simply skipped. To see an example of how to use the diagram, look at the second image. Click either image below to see a larger version. A PDF version of the main diagram available for download is also attached below.

CLASS WARFARE:  In the forklift industry when you hear the term “class” mentioned, it may mean two different things.

ITA forklift class:  ITA (Industrial Truck Association) created a class system for the type of forklift.  Class 1 is electric rider, class 4 is cushion sit down engine powered, etc.  That’s not to be confused with carriage class.  Class 3 forklift forks could fit on an ITA class 4 forklift.  Confused yet?    Just ask for clarification.  Is the person or website referring to forklift type class or carriage class.
