Forklift chain cuts downtime

Jan 23 | 2014

A range of forklift truck chains featuring plastic ‘flights’ and ‘guide’ attachments is now available from industrial chain supplier, FB Chain Ltd.

The plastic attachments are incorporated within the chain’s design. They hold hydraulic hoses and reduce the type of mast cylinder damage that often results from ‘metal on metal’ friction and is a common cause of truck downtime.

These type of chains are most usually found on Linde and Jungheinrich trucks but other leading forklift makers – including Komatsu, Still and Toyota  - use them too.
