Forklift Motors
Buying a forklift is something you should carefully think about. A forklift is a large capital expense, and a complex machine with a motor strong enough to execute heavy-lifting tasks. The price tag for a forklift ranges from $10,000 to $30,000, comparable to the cost of a small truck. If purchasing a used forklift, be certain to have it inspected for potential mechanical problems.

The two types of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are typically more costly than those with internal combustion motors. The motor size must suit the type of work for which the forklift will be utilized. A forklift with a motor which is big costs more compared to a forklift with a motor that is smaller.

Gasoline or propane powered motors are usually stronger compared to electric motor and are capable of raising heavier weight. The disadvantage is that gas motors tend to develop problems more frequently compared to electric motors. Depending upon the price of gas or propane, gas powered forklifts can be more pricey to operate than electric powered forklifts.

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