Forklift Chains & Mast Bushings

Forklift chains and mast bushings are indispensable components in the smooth operation and longevity of forklifts, providing essential strength and precision in lifting mechanisms.

At Helmar Parts, we provide a comprehensive range of forklift chains and mast bushings designed to meet various industrial requirements, ensuring your operations run smoothly and efficiently.

Essential Role of Forklift Chains

Forklift chains are critical components in the lifting mechanism of forklifts, playing a direct role in handling heavy loads with precision and safety. The quality of these chains directly impacts the efficiency and safety of forklift operations.

A well-made forklift chain ensures smooth lifting and lowering of materials, while a poor-quality chain can lead to operational hazards and downtime. At Helmar Parts, our focus is on supplying chains that enhance operational efficiency while prioritizing workplace safety.

Variety and Specifications of Forklift Chains

Our extensive selection of forklift chains includes various types, each designed to suit specific forklift models and applications. From leaf chains known for their strength and durability in lifting heavy loads to chains with specific link spacing and chain pitch, we ensure that you find the perfect match for your equipment.

There are A- and B-type chains. Both AL6 Series and BL6 Series have the same pitch, but they differ in plate thickness and pin diameter. These steel chains have a very simple construction: link plates and pins. The two right-hand digits in a chain number indicate the chain’s lacing. The number (s) to the left indicate pitch in 1/8″ units. For exact chain specifications, click here.

Maximizing Lifespan and Performance

The longevity and performance of forklift chains heavily depend on regular maintenance and proper usage. To maximize their lifespan, it’s essential to conduct routine inspections for signs of wear, such as stretched links or damaged rollers. Regular lubrication is also key to prevent corrosion and ensure smooth movement. Additionally, understanding and adhering to the load capacities can significantly reduce undue stress on the chains.

Mast Bushings: Enhancing Forklift Performance

Mast bushings play a pivotal role in the smooth operation of forklifts, particularly in the lifting mechanism. These components are crucial for stabilizing the mast and allowing it to move up and down effortlessly. High-quality mast bushings not only ensure smoother lifting operations but also significantly reduce wear on the forklift mast, thereby extending its life.
