ETR reach truck load wheels noisy

Post by Steve »

Jungheinrich ETR Reach Truck has the front wheels very noisy when driving forward or reverse in our warehouse. They make a grinding and thumping sound whenever the truck is moving. The front load wheels look OK, no chunks missing except a little on the sides of the wheels. The wheels seam to moving from side to side.

The most likely cause of the noise on your Jungheinrich Reach Truck is that the bearings on the front load wheels are bad and need to be replaced. If the truck does not have a lot of hours on it, then the cause may be from lack of grease during a PM maintenance services.

You can get just bearings or the get the wheels with bearing already installed. You will probably also have to replaced the spacer washers on each side of every wheel, along with the side plate. With the wheels moving side to side, they are rubbing and causing a lot of wear on the spacers and plates.

You will have to jack the front of the truck off the ground, remove the 2 17mm allen bolts, then the wheels assemblies will come out. To disassemble them you will need to tap out the 4 drift pins. If they have been noisy for a long time, the inner bearing race nay be stuck to the axle shafts and will also need to be replaced. See pics below.
