Forklift Motors
A forklift purchase is not to be taken lightly. A forklift is a huge capital expense, and a complex machinery 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 second-hand forklift, be sure to have it checked for potential mechanical problems.

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

Propane or gasoline powered motors are usually stronger compared to electric motor and are capable of lifting heavier weight. The downside is that gas motors tend to develop problems more often than electric motors. Depending upon the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more pricey to run compared to electric powered forklifts.

Reliable forklift manufacturers consist of Mitsubishi Caterpillar, Crown Equipment Corp., NACCO Industries and Toyota Industries. Prior to deciding, research the different manufacturers and the availability of parts. Testimonials, prices and reviews could be found on-line.
