Hyster V50:
starting problem

This unit may start for 3 to 4 days straight @ 20 times/day & suddenly will not operate. As soon as we hook up a battery charger to it using the start mode on the charger, it will start. We've replaced about 4 starters & a battery thinking this was the problem because we can hear the starter solenoid clicking, but not turning the engine over when this happens.

If it were my forklift, I would check the static voltage of the battery (12.69 volts is technically a full charge) and complete a load test on the battery first. You can then do voltage drop tests to determine if you are losing voltage through bad positive and negative cables. Also, check for voltage drop at the starter 'S' terminal. There can be a lot of voltage loss between the key switch, neutral safety switch and 'S' terminal. Low voltage to the starter solenoid can cause intermittent starting issues and decreased starter life. I hope that this helps!
