Proper Mounting Concerns for Universal Mounting Propane Forklift Tanks.

How are Universal Mounted Propane Forklift Tanks to be installed on a forklift?

  • What does the term, "Universal Mount" mean?  Simply that the tank can be mounted vertically or horizontally.
  • Some customers who purchase universal mounted propane forklift tanks are confused by the directional "arrow" that is stamped in the collar of the tank.  Does the arrow indication only one mounting direction?

Here is the answer:

The cylinder will supply liquid in both vertical and horizontal positions and can be mounted either way.

On forklift cylinders, the gauge cannot be accurate in both orientations. Usually the horizontal reading will be E, ¼, ½, ¾, F and the vertical will be OK or ADD, since the float arm cannot sweep the entire cylinder contents vertically. The cylinder is taller than it is wide.
