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.
FB Chain now has 15 different model types within its plastic guide leaf chain range and the company stresses the importance of specifying the correct version when the time comes to replace a worn or defective forklift chain.
Martyn Green, FB Chain’s after market manager, explains: ”Some chains are common across a number of machines but others might look the same but have subtle yet very significant differences.”
To ensure that clients always specify the right chain, FB has an extensive database which lists the chain type that’s right for a specific forklift model.
As with all lifting chain supplied by FB Chain, leaf chains with plastic flights are offered with a fully traceable batch test certificate number which not only allows full after-sales traceability but also confirms the safe working load of the chain.
