BENEFITS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING AN ELECTRIC FORKLIFT

BENEFITS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING AN ELECTRIC FORKLIFT
24/07/2020

If you’re considering purchasing an electric forklift truck, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the many benefits this modern piece of machinery can offer. And we wanted to explore some of the key advantages in this blog…

Highly durable When compared to other types of lift truck, electric forklifts have a much longer lifespan. Thanks to the battery and charger, the initial cost of these forklifts may be higher, but over time they become more cost-effective than other models. Electric powered forklifts can go the distance, and they won’t need replacing as quickly.

Save on fuel Of course another key benefit of this type of forklift is that they won’t require any fuel to operate. Not only will you be able to save on costs throughout the lifespan of these forklifts, you’ll also be helping the environment as well. They produce no emissions and are extremely eco-friendly machines.

Save on maintenance Not only will you cut costs on fuel, with electric forklifts you’ll also reduce your maintenance costs too. These forklifts don’t require the same amount of upkeep and repair that other standard lift trucks require. Parts that often need the most maintenance, such as catalytic converters, belts or spark plugs won’t be found with electric models.

Very versatile These electric lift trucks come in all shapes and sizes, and their versatility more than makes up for the fact that they’re not quite as powerful as their engine-powered counterparts. You’ll be able to choose from three or four wheeled counterbalanced trucks, to sit-on or reach-on trucks. There’s many types available, plus they are generally more narrow than other types of lift truck, which adds to their manoeuvrability and convenience.
