The serial number of Hyster forklifts is in a letter-and-number format and, depending on the model, varies in length. Use this number to order parts or inquire about services for the Hyster forklift. Knowing the serial number of the forklift helps operators know the capabilities of the machine and makes ordering parts easier.

Find out the year the forklift was manufactured by looking at the last letter in the serial number, as noted by YCForklifts.com.

  • S - 1995
  • T - 1996
  • U - 1997
  • V - 1998
  • W - 1999
