Yale GLCXXX:
Identify old Yale.

Just got this old Yale for free. No data plate on the old lass. I was wondering if anyone could help me identify; has a Mazda e5 engine, so 1980-87 possible known location serial number in frame would be cool, or any other identifying factors would be of great help.

Thanks for the responses. I'll be taking some air craft cleaner to any suspected area with a serial and see what I can find

if your data plate is missing or worn off it's anyones guess as what the model number is
as for the location of the serial number generally they were located on the RH side of the frame, around floor plate area either at the floor plate or along that side of the frame. Also another location is along the hood where it meets the frame. This looks like an older machine so it's probably along the side up near the floor plate area. (those serial's started with an N followed by numbers).
If the truck has been painted you'll need a scraper and some cleaner most likely.
From the pictures you posted it looks like a GLC050RC or RD model, i'd say and RD or maybe an RF. If this is the case then the serial number would be the newer format with the 10 digits as opposed to the older format of 7 digits.
That's a D5 engine for sure, triple stage mast as previously mentioned. Unfortunately those tags you showed are standard tags required by osha on all lifttrucks, they don't tell us much on the model number.
If you do find the serial number it's the letter on the end of it that designates the year of mfg.
Pre2000 those serials were 7 digits and started with a N. The year of mfg was determined by a letter in the model number i think.

Post 2000 they went to a 10 digit serial number and the year designation was determined by the letter on the end.

Chug,

Remove the floor plate and look on either side of the frame for a number. Pete is pretty close to what you have. Engine should be a D5, very reliable if maintained. You can also check under the air cleaner. Good Luck

The hard to do we do right away. The impossible just takes a little longer.
You have a propane ,cushion tire, 3-5000 lb ,single speed forward/reverse.
With a sideshifter , I believe manu in1978, three stage mast with about 186-192" lift mast, forks look like 1.5x4x42" The exact capacity is on the name plate after the GLC ( GLC030, GLC040 or GLC050.
You will need a load backrest behind the forks to comply with the OSHA requirement $200-300.
The Mazda engines were very reliable- good luck with it.
