Discussion:
Convert electric forklift to diesel forklift. Is possible?

Hello to all.
I recovered an old electric forklift. There are no batteries. I think it's gods
1995.
It has an electric motor with a cardan shaft connected to a hydraulic pump.
I wanted to do an experiment.
It is possible to remove the electric motor and apply a diesel engine always with a cardan shaft. Would work?
Thank you all.

No as others have said the battery is classed as a big part of the counterweight you would also need an engine fuel tank transmission and new drive axle. Not worth the effort

Generally, the electric forklift's battery has the function of the counterweight, i wonder how you would compensate for that...

i think it is better to put ISUZU c240 diesel engine it is perfect and compact engine and the hydraulic pump can be connected by a cardan shaft via crank shaft pulley
