    Default Asphalt-like stuff falling out of electric forklift!

    This is an older Crown 36-volt Forklift. It seems to be dropping asphalt-like grains on the floor. Has anyone seen anything like this? What causes it?

    Could have been used on a asphalt driveway they tend to get bogged sometimes so could have some trapped bits underneath as they tried to drag it free of the bog.
    Electric forks need a nice flat hard surface asphalt is not quite good enough maybe you got it because of this problem as they parted it out.

    Thx. The fork has been sitting in same spot for 2 mos. and this just began days ago. That’s strange but may be explained by the recent high temperatures (warehouse no A/C.). The hi temp was just enough to dislodge it.

    You might want to examine the top of the battery for excess corrosion as it has been parked in one spot and and the tar that is used to seal the cells in the battery box is probably swelling and pushing it out to the floor? Just my guess?

    More likely its a petrified mixture of dirt and grease falling down from the mast ,or some other greased part.

    The base of our press brake was full of what we though was asphalt. Turns out it was some oil absorbing material to stop hydraulic fluid from getting on the floor.
