Here a list of the top 10 forklift parts that require replacement, with detail on why the type of part requires replacing and what function it serves on a forklift.
A forklift air filter is a consumable and replaceable engine part used to keep the air running through an internal combustion engine on a forklift clean and without contaminants. It is necessary to prevents harmful debris, dirt and contaminants from entering your forklift engine. So it is important to replace an air filter often.
See our page to source Forklift Air Filters for Top forklift brands.
A forklift horn is a critical part of a lift truck’s safety equipment. It is used frequently by forklift operators to alert people around a lift truck that it is moving or approaching, or backing up. A horn can wear out frequently and will need replacement by a staff member that maintains forklift mechanical operations.

A forklift oil filter is a consumable and replaceable engine part used to keep oil running through an internal combustion engine on a forklift. Clean oil is necessary to keep friction to a minimum and to reduce engine wear and tear, so it is important to replace an oil filter often and as part of a regular forklift engine maintenance routine.

The forklift chain is a key component in the lift mechanism in a lift truck. When it wears out – by stretching or degrading – a forklift chain can be extremely dangerous. A failure can result ina dropped load which can lead to damaged inventory, rack, and injury to workers or pedestrians that are present in a warehouse or distribution center. You’ll need a device called a chain gauge to measure wear and elongation. Here is where to source a replacement forklift chain
A forklift pedal pad is a rubber cover that makes it easy to control a brake pedal or accelerator. These rubber pads wear down with regular use and need to be replaced, so that when a forklift truck is operated that the operator’s foot does not slip off a pedal and cause an accident. A slippage can cause an unintended stop or sudden acceleration. A pedal pad allows for precise control of lift truck pedals. You can source replacement forklift pedal pads on this page.
Forklift spark plugs are critical components for a forklift internal combustion engine to cause ignition of fuel for a clean burn and maximized energy extraction from fuel. These electric igniter parts can get dirty and work with less reliability over time. They need to be replaced with regularity. When a forklift truck is started up by the operator, the engine should fire on the first key turn. We have provide links to spark plugs for all major internal combustion forklifts. We have also resourced ignition kits and related ignition parts. You can source replacement forklift spark plugs and ignition kits on this page.
