Forklift Motors
Buying a forklift is not to be taken lightly. A forklift is a big capital expense, and a complex equipment with a motor strong enough to execute 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 purchasing a second-hand forklift, be certain to have it checked for possible mechanical issues.

The two kinds of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are typically more pricey than those with internal combustion motors. The size of the motor should suit the kind of work for which the forklift would be utilized. A forklift with a motor that is large costs a lot more compared to one with a smaller motor.

Motors that utilize gasoline or propane could lift heavier weights since they are normally stronger than electric motor. The disadvantage is that gas motors tend to develop problems more often compared to electric motors. Depending on the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more costly to operate compared to electric powered forklifts.

Some reputable manufacturers of forklifts are Crown Equipment Corp., Mitsubishi Caterpillar, Toyota Industries and NACCO Industries. Before making a decision, research the various manufacturers and the availability of parts. Testimonials, prices and reviews can be found on line.
