How to choose your Forklift Replacement Parts

One day your Caterpillar or Toyota forklift might need replacement parts and you'll have to make a choice : use OEM or Replacement parts, making that decision can be difficult so let's look at the pros and cons of both of them ! While OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) may look like a no-brainer at first glance since it's the "genuine" replacement parts that acronym is really  deceptive; OEM doesn't always mean that it's the same brand as your forklift because companies have exclusive property rights contracts with the manufacturers !

Analyzing Forklift Parts performance

Even then some people might still think that OEM is always the best option when it comes to performance, yet again it's wrong ! Actually Replacement parts can have equal or better performance while being way cheaper, and it's true that replacement parts might get some bad rep because of low quality knock-offs but quality replacement parts do exist , you can check our catalog to see by yourself.   There are a lot of replacement parts on the market today, variety is a big plus since you don't have to struggle to find the parts you really need in time, unlike OEM manufacturers that might no longer make some parts for a particular model or need to import a part wasting you a lot of time.

And availability is not the only downside, to get OEM parts you need to buy them from a dealership, there are other ways to get them especially online but they are even less consistent and since OEM parts have availability issues already it might be a problem. Replacement parts are everywhere but because of the overwhelming variety we strongly recommend you to buy them from a source you trust, for example we only list quality Forklift Parts that won't disappoint you, trying to find some by yourself might lead to a negative experience.  Even if you have issues replacements parts come with a one year Mfg warranty for any Mfg defects and independent shops have been using replacement parts for years and years without issues, you just need an expert eye to help you pick the optimal forklift parts ! 

On top of all that replacements parts are often 60% cheaper than their OEM counterparts and can go even cheaper during forklift sales, showing that price is not a always synonym of quality. With better performances, cheaper prices and one year warranty you can't go wrong with replacement part as long as you get yours from a trusted source like  !

OEM parts  :


  • Come from a trusted source

Forklift Parts - Forklifts

Forklifts have many uses. As the backbone of the industrial, manufacturing and distribution industries, they have been credited with providing efficient warehousing and productivity for more than 90 years in America. Initially designed to mirror a tractor with a platform-like attachment, the design has continuously evolved into a machine with a vertical lifting mast. Today’s forklifts have been redesigned to be ergonomically useful for operator comfort, productivity and style. These new innovations have allowed forklifts to become integrated with electronic equipment that can interface with radio-frequency identification technology and cargo management systems for smooth operations.

How are forklifts used?

Forklifts are used on construction sites, in warehouses, at recycling facilities, on docks, in shipyards and by municipalities when snow or other items need to be moved from one area to another. They are very useful for loading and unloading heavy items, transporting materials and stacking pallets.

How are forklifts classified?

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, there are eight different forklift classifications:

Class I: Electric Motor Rider Trucks

Class II: Electric Motor Narrow Aisle Trucks

Class III: Electric Motor Hand Trucks or Hand/Rider Trucks

Class IV: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks (Solid/Cushion Tires)

Class V: Internal Combustion Engine Trucks (Pneumatic Tires)

Class VI: Electric and Internal Combustion Engine Tractors

Class VII: Rough Terrain Forklift Trucks

These forklift classes are also by weight and include electric forklifts, electric walkies, electric walkie riders, IC cushion tire forklifts, IC pneumatic forklifts, reach trucks, order pickers, pallet jacks, rough terrain and others. All of these different types of trucks require specific forklift parts to work at optimal levels. There are a number of brands that have been designated as top performers:

  • Toyota Forklifts

This has been the top seller in forklifts since 2002. In the 1990s, Toyota acquired the Raymond Corporation, which developed the narrow aisle reach truck in the 1950s. Toyota is dedicated to environmental responsibility and calls its vehicles “Earth’s #1 Lift Truck.”

  • Yale Forklifts

Yale was one of the first forklift manufacturers on the market to make electric battery-powered trucks in 1920. The company also developed power steering, center-control trucks, caster steering and the use of high-heat-resistant Class-H silicon insulation in electric motors. As pioneers, in 1964, they introduced the first silicon-controlled rectifier electric forklift truck.

  • Mitsubishi Forklifts

Mitsubishi forklift trucks are designed to provide reliable, efficient and affordable use. Mitsubishi carries a full line of trucks in addition to its partnership with Caterpillar.
