Hyster H50H:
Drive take-up

Perkins 4 cylinder diesel H50H. Starts first time but needs a minute or two of revving to get forward or rearward movement. Once it gets moving, it's fine. Is this likely to be a clutch or hydraulic issue?

Thanks for that. Unfortunately, the forklift has sat in the corner of my workshop since! I used it for a while today and left it idling. After a few minutes, I went to move it and had no forward or reverse motion, despite the revs. I will have a look at the oil level and control valves.

check the control valve on the transmission, sounds like a directional solenoid or spool gummed up and has to warm up a bit before it starts working.

Fact of the week

John Lennon had terrible eyesight and was very self-conscious about it. Early in his career, he would not wear his glasses during performances. In the end, John's 'granny glasses' became one of his most iconic trademarks. His last pair, worn on that tragic day in 1980, are kept at 'The Beatles Story' exhibit in Liverpool, insured for over £1 million.
