Caterpillar High Capacity Forklifts
Buying a forklift is not to be taken lightly. A forklift is a huge capital expenditure, and a complex equipment with a motor strong enough to carry out heavy-lifting jobs. The price tag for a forklift varies from $10,000 to $30,000, comparable to the cost of a small truck. If buying a second-hand forklift, be certain to have it checked for potential mechanical issues.
The two types of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are normally more pricey than those with internal combustion motors. The motor size must suit the kind of work for which the forklift will be utilized. A forklift with a big motor costs more than one with a smaller motor.
Motors that utilize propane or gasoline could lift heavier weights as they are usually stronger than electric motor. The downside is that gas motors tend to develop issues more often compared to electric motors. Depending on the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts can be more pricey to operate compared to electric powered forklifts.
Reliable forklift manufacturers include Crown Equipment Corp., Mitsubishi Caterpillar, Toyota Industries and NACCO Industries. Prior to making a decision, research the various manufacturers and the availability of parts. Prices, reviews and testimonials could be found online.
