I am not familiar with forklifts
but I need to buy one, do you have any advice?
Forklifts and aerial platforms are our business. We consider SYCARR duty to guide you in choosing the most suitable vehicle for your job. Here below you will find some brief ideas to guide you.
The following is a list of questions that you should ask yourself before buying a forklift:
- What kind of work do you have to do?
- What is the maximum weight to be lifted?
- What maximum height should it be able to reach?
- In what environment is the forklift used?
- What kind of surface is it used on?
- How many hours a day is it used for?
- What is your available budget?
Your answers are the first step towards the right purchase.
Let’s choose the engine, diesel or electric.
It depends on the use. Each power source has its advantages and disadvantages. Internal combustion engines have a lot of power, generate a lot of torque and are more mobile because you can refuel them anywhere. However, they require more maintenance and produce exhaust emissions.
Electronic forklifts have lower overall operating costs, produce no emissions, and have fewer mechanical moving parts, which entails less demanding overall maintenance. They are quieter, cleaner and easier to use. The disadvantage is in the battery as it discharges and it takes a period of time ranging from 5 to 8 hours to recharge to maximum power.
The choice of type is determined by how and where a forklift is used.
