Caterpillar High Capacity Forklifts
Buying a forklift is something you should carefully think about. A forklift is a big capital expenditure, and a complex equipment with a motor strong enough to carry out 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 second-hand forklift, be sure to have it checked for potential mechanical problems.
The two types of forklift motors are: internal combustion or electric. Forklifts with electric motors are normally more costly as opposed to those with internal combustion motors. The motor size should suit the kind of work for which the forklift will be utilized. A forklift with a motor that is large costs more compared to one with a smaller motor.
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 often than electric motors. Depending on the price of gas or propane, gas powered forklifts could be more pricey to run than electric powered forklifts.
