Forklift Motors
Purchasing a forklift is something you must think about carefully. A forklift is a large capital expenditure, and a complex equipment with a motor strong enough to execute heavy-lifting jobs. The price tag for a forklift ranges from $10,000 to $30,000, comparable to the cost of a small truck. If purchasing a second-hand forklift, be certain to have it inspected for possible mechanical problems.

There are two different types of forklift motor: internal combustion or electric. Forklifts with electric motors are usually more pricey than those with internal combustion motors. The size of the motor must suit the kind of work for which the forklift will be utilized. A forklift with a big motor costs more compared to a forklift with a smaller motor.

Propane or gasoline 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 issues more often compared to electric motors. Depending upon the price of propane or gas, gas powered forklifts could be more costly to operate compared to electric powered forklifts.

Some reliable manufacturers of forklifts are Mitsubishi Caterpillar, Crown Equipment Corp., Toyota Industries and NACCO Industries. Before deciding, research the various manufacturers and the availability of parts. Testimonials, prices and reviews can be found on line.
