 Caterpillar Forklift Master Cylinder

Forklift Master Cylinder is essentially a control device which is one the most important part of a forklift braking mechanism. It basically does the work of converting non-hydraulic pressure into hydraulic pressure. Master cylinder also allows brake liquids to transfer the applied breaking force into all four wheels of a forklift truck. Optimized quantity of brake oil is supplied to the master cylinder form a brake oil reservoir which is situated just above the brake master cylinder. This process enables the master cylinder to apply requisite amount of pressure to the braking system.


Forklift master cylinders are formed with components like-primary and secondary reservoirs, primary and secondary pistons, rubber cup, a housing and return springs. A foot operated hydraulic pump is also included by the brake master cylinder just to send pressurized brake fluids into the brake calipers.


Malfunction of the master cylinder can be a critical problem for forklift trucks. Brakes becoming soft or squishy while using the brake pedals are one of the major symptoms of a master cylinder failure. Regular maintenance & observation along with testing is required to avoid such braking problems. Servicing of master cylinder of the forklift truck instead of replacement is a budget saving idea in this regard.


Because of being this disassembling and servicing of parts a technical job, it is better to consult with a specialist mechanic in order to perform this task. Solid Lift Parts Inc. provides all master cylinder parts and repair kits for all makes and models. In case you need any assistance you can just contact with us anytime you want.
