What Will Chain Inspection and Proper Maintenance Do For Your Lift Truck Fleet?
  • Determine Chain Condition
  • Promote Maximum Service Life of Chain
determine chain condition
Determine Chain Condition
  • Elongation
  • Rust Corrosion
  • Cracked Plates
  • Protruding Pins
  • Misalignment
  • Chain Anchor and Sheave Wear or Damage
  • Chain elongated 3% or more should be replaced

This lengthening of the chain could reduce its strength by as much as 18%

chain wear gauge
Chain Wear Gauge
  • This tool is used to measure the lengthening of chains
  • When the points on the gauge appear at the center of the pin ends, the chain condition is acceptable
  • If the points on the gauge appear opposite the center of the pin ends, the chain is worn out and should be replaced
rust corrosion
Rust Corrosion
  • May cause side plate cracking and reduced load carrying capacity
  • Chains must always be completely protected by a film of lubricant
cracked plates
Cracked Plates
  • Repeated heavy loads over a period of time may crack the plates and eventually break the chain
  • The chains must be replaced if a crack is discovered
protruding pins
Protruding Pins
  • Heavy loaded chains operating with little lubrication generate friction between the pin and plates
  • Over time, pins will slowly work out of the chain causing chain failure
  • Is determined by a wear pattern on pin heads and outside plates
  • Will damage the chain and sheaves and cause internal friction in the chain
chain anchors and sheaves
Chain Anchors and Sheaves
  • Check chain anchors for wear, damage, and incorrect alignment
  • Anchors with worn or broken fingers must be replaced
  • Chain anchor pins and their retention should be checked and pins replaced as necessary
promote maximum service life
Promote Maximum Service Life
  • Inadequate maintenance accounts for most complaints of unsatisfactory chain performance
  • Each lift chain should be checked after every 8 hours of operation and inspected and lubricated after every 250 operating hours
  • Do not try to repair worn sections or splice a new or used piece of chain
  • Replace complete chain, if wear is indicated
  • Replace lift chains in pairs
why replacement of both chains is mandatory
Why Replacement of Both Chains is Mandatory
  • Older chain could sustain fatigue cracks
  • Older chain has experienced stretch
  • Chain anchor adjustments may not be sufficient for the new chain
  • Chain wear will be uneven, thus accelerating wear on new chain
  • New chain will have less rolling resistance

what will you receive from the inspection
What Will You Receive From The Inspection?
  • A complete chain inspection will be performed at your location by qualified dealer staff
  • You will receive a management report summarizing the chain condition and recommended action for each truck in your fleet
