The lift truck must be put on blocks for some
types of maintenance and repair.
moval of the following assemblies causes large
changes in the center of gravity: upright,
drive axle, engine and transmission, and the
counterweight. When the lift truck is put on
blocks, put additional blocks in the following
positions to maintain stability:
a. Before removing the upright and drive axle,
put blocks under the counterweight so that
the lift truck cannot fall backward.
b. Before removing the counterweight, put
blocks under the upright assembly so that
the lift truck cannot fall forward.
The surface must be solid, even, and level when
the lift truck is put on blocks. Make sure that
any blocks used to support the lift truck are
solid, one piece units.
Do not operate the lift truck if the capscrews
for the counterweight are not installed. When
the capscrew is removed, the counterweight
can fall from the lift truck.
Make sure any lifting devices have the correct
capacity for the parts being moved. See Fig-
If the lift truck has an LPG fuel system, remove
the LPG tank and bracket so that the counter-
weight can be removed. See Figure 2.
LPG can cause an explosion. Do not cause
sparks or permit flammable material near the
