During the late 1990's, a Nissan Propane Forklift will have cost approximately $11,000 to $14,000 to purchase a brand new one. You could now purchase a second-hand unit with this amount, with less than 5,000 operating hours and has around 15 feet of lifting capacity and cushion tires. However, a used Nissan forklift truck which has less than 5,000 hours can be found for less than $7,000. This alternative may be a little bit of an older unit than some others, but keep in mind; everything revolves around the operating hours. A unit like this will most likely have a pretty good load capacity of roughly 5,000 pounds.
Newer Nissan forklifts from 2005 to the current year, can be found priced near $10,000. Usually, these models would have a typical lift capacity ranging from 4,000 to 5,000 lbs. Usually, a model similar to this will run smoothly and have cushion tires. Of course, newer models normally run smoother than older ones.
Types of Forklifts
The lift truck is normally categorized in 2 separate manners: by the type of fuel it takes and the structure of the forklift. Based on structure, the following kinds of forklifts are among the most popular:
Standard Forklift: Standard lift trucks include the familiar warehouse lift truck. These forklifts offer a lifting capacity of 3,000 to 5,000 lbs. They have a height capacity of approximately 20 feet.
Reach Forklift: The reach forklift and narrow aisle forklift are the type of forklifts found within warehouses and distribution centers which have limited storage space. Narrow construction means that it can not carry as much as a standard forklift model, although, it has an extendable mast that can easily carry loads around 40 feet.
Telescopic Forklift: Telescopic lift trucks are also referred to as telehandlers, extendable reach forklifts or a telescopic handler. These kinds lift truck trucks are a more rugged and heavy-duty version of a standard lift truck. These models provide a telescopic boom which is capable of being raised up and extended out. Often, these units are used on rough terrain. They are able to could handle loads up to 70 feet high
Straight Mast Forklift: The straight mast forklift is most usually utilized to perform tasks on rough terrain. These types of lift trucks are only capable of moving loads vertically, unlike a telescopic model. These units could raise loads up to 12,000 pounds, while reaching a height of 10 to 30 feet.
