What’s the difference between a cab and a Raingard®?


An enclosed cab is professionally engineered to protect from weather and environmental conditions. It is available in Full, Paneled, or Envelope variants depending on the Brand and Make of the truck.


The Raingard®, a budget-friendly alternative to a cab, comprises sturdy panels with optional vinyl curtains for the sides. These assembled steel panels clamp onto a forklift’s existing overhead guard, with no drilling or welding required.

Keep in mind though that a Raingard® solution is not a sealed cabin. For extensive outdoor use or extreme natural conditions, an enclosed steel cab may be a better option.

What do I need to order replacement Parts?

First step is to determine if you have a cab or a Raingard® installed.
To identify, cabs have steel doors, while the Raingard® will have vinyl curtains or nothing at all. Additionally, a Raingard® also has a Yellow Sticker on the side of the roof panel.
When identified, take note of the cab serial number/Raingard® model number, including the truck model number.

Where can I find the serial number of the cab?

The serial number of the cab is a 5-digit number that’s found inside the cab. It’s a metal plate welded onto the left-hand rear corner post, or above the left-hand door (near the roof). It’s also painted the same color as the cab.

Where can I find the Raingard® model number?

The Raingard® model number is located on the rear right-hand side of the roof panel. It’s a 4-digit number etched onto the panel, (see picture below). To order parts, we’ll need the information about your truck along with the model number of the Raingard®.

I need to order a cab or Raingard® for my truck. Where do I start?

We engineer our products to fit your truck. Perfectly. Since every forklift truck is different, so is the design of our cab or Raingard®. Not every customer wants the same accessories or modifications, so we quote each cab and Raingard® individually.

To start the process, we’ll need the make, model number, and overhead guard height of your truck. Upon receipt of your PO, we will schedule your order for production and send you an order confirmation.
