Forklift Motors
A forklift purchase is not to be taken lightly. A forklift is a big capital expense, and a complex machine with a motor strong enough to execute heavy-lifting tasks. The price tag for a forklift varies from $10,000 to $30,000, comparable to the cost of a small truck. If purchasing a used forklift, be sure to have it inspected for possible mechanical issues.

The two kinds of forklift motors are: internal combustion or electric. Forklifts with electric motors are usually more costly 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 a lot more compared to a forklift with a smaller motor.

Propane or gasoline powered motors are normally stronger compared to electric motor and are capable of raising heavier weight. The downside is that gas motors tend to develop problems more frequently than electric motors. Depending on the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more pricey to operate compared to electric powered forklifts.

Reliable forklift manufacturers consist of Crown Equipment Corp., Mitsubishi Caterpillar, NACCO Industries and Toyota Industries. Prior to deciding, research the various manufacturers and the availability of parts. Reviews, testimonials and prices can be found online.
