How to Replace a Forklift Master Cylinder

How to replace a forklift master cylinder: Forklift brake systems typically use a master cylinder often mounted beneath the operator floor panel. The master cylinder is vital for your equipment’s brakes. The master cylinder works as a hydraulic pump that puts in brake fluid to convert brake pedal pressure into hydraulic pressure.


To start, remove the floor panels, find the master cylinder and go to work. This tutorial will show the replacement of a master cylinder on a Hyster 5000 pound forklift with a corresponding full video.
