Forklift Motors
Purchasing a forklift is something you should carefully think about. A forklift is a big capital expense, and a complex machine with a motor strong enough to carry out 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 sure to have it inspected for possible mechanical problems.

The two kinds of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are normally more costly compared to those with internal combustion motors. The size of the motor should suit the kind of work for which the forklift will be used. A forklift with a motor that is big costs much more compared to a forklift with a smaller motor.

Gasoline or propane powered motors are commonly stronger compared to electric motor and are capable of lifting heavier weight. The disadvantage is that gas motors tend to develop problems more frequently compared to electric motors. Depending on the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more expensive to operate than electric powered forklifts.

Some 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 can be found online.
