Caterpillar High Capacity Forklifts
Buying a forklift is something you must think about carefully. A forklift is a large capital expense, and a complex machinery with a motor strong enough to perform 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 inspected for potential mechanical issues.
The two types of forklift motors are: electric or internal combustion. Forklifts with electric motors are typically more pricey compared to those with internal combustion motors. The motor size must suit the kind of work for which the forklift will be used. A forklift with a large motor costs more than one with a motor that is smaller.
Gasoline or propane powered motors are normally stronger compared to electric motor and are capable of raising heavier weight. The disadvantage is that gas motors tend to develop problems more often than electric motors. Depending on the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more costly to run compared to electric powered forklifts.
