Forklift Motors
Purchasing a forklift is something you should carefully think about. A forklift is a big capital expenditure, and a complex machinery with a motor strong enough to perform 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 buying a second-hand forklift, be certain to have it inspected for potential mechanical problems.

There are two various kinds of forklift motor: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are typically more expensive compared to those with internal combustion motors. The motor size must suit the kind of work for which the forklift would be utilized. A forklift with a large motor costs much more compared to a forklift with a motor which is smaller.

Gasoline or propane powered motors are normally stronger than electric motor and are capable of raising heavier weight. The downside is that gas motors tend to develop issues more frequently than electric motors. Depending upon the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts can be more expensive to operate than electric powered forklifts.

Reputable forklift manufacturers include Mitsubishi Caterpillar, Crown Equipment Corp., Toyota Industries and NACCO Industries. Before making a decision, research the different manufacturers and the availability of parts. Testimonials, prices and reviews could be found on line.
