Forklift Motors
Purchasing a forklift is something you should think about carefully. A forklift is a big capital expense, and a complex machine with a motor strong enough to perform 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 buying a used forklift, be certain to have it inspected for possible mechanical issues.

The two types of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are usually more costly than forklifts with internal combustion motors. The size of the motor must suit the kind of work for which the forklift would be utilized. A forklift with a motor which is big costs much more than one with a motor which is smaller.

Motors that utilize gasoline or propane could lift heavier weights because they are normally stronger than electric motor. The downside is that gas motors tend to develop issues more frequently compared to electric motors. Depending upon the price of gas or propane, gas powered forklifts can be more expensive to run than electric powered forklifts.

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