Fork Lift For Sale

Forklift trucks are one of the workhorses of the industrial world, lifting, loading and moving products and materials around factories, warehouses, work sites and retailers as well as loading and off-loading trucks and vans. Many manufacturers now market rough terrain versions (which are used for moving loads around uneven construction sites) and heavy duty machines capable of lifting a full-sized and loaded shipping container.

Units working inside buildings are often electrically powered making them quiet and emissions free but the limitations of the battery can dictate the work cycle. To counter this limitation some users prefer running engine-driven forklifts on gas as this produces much cleaner exhaust gasses than when burning either petrol or diesel.

The bigger machines are generally diesel powered as they usually work outside but have been retrofitted exhaust after treatment if they are required to work in confined spaces.

Buying a Used Forklift

Forklifts represent one of the real breakthroughs in handling technology and warehousing. The design is so successful that they have become almost omnipresent and feature in loading applications everywhere. That, though, can make them almost invisible, too, and it is easy to underestimate just how vital they are in our logistics industry.

Visit any facility involved in shifting gear and you are sure to find a forklift. In warehouses, distribution centres, builders' merchants and factories it is the forklifts that do the heavy lifting. A used forklift can therefore be a hugely important piece of kit to any organisation, and it is vital that you buy the right one. When buying any item of plant, safety is of prime concern, so before using it you need to make sure that the forklift is serviceable and suited to your environment and operators.

Forklifts are rated according to their lift capability. This can start at just a few tonnes for a compact version and rises to tens of tonnes for larger models. Clearly, you therefore need to be clear about the weight of loads lifted in your operation. The forklift needs to be sized not just for the average load but also the maximum weights lifted on site. While this is straightforward, thought also needs to be given to the dimensions of the loads lifted at your operation. A forklift's rated capacity is based on a fairly standard and compact four-foot cube. If you work with very long, wide or unusual shapes, this can significantly reduce the safe load maximum.

A sound knowledge of these factors will help you properly determine the capacity of forklift needed, but another factor is the height capability. Just lifting pallets on and off trucks will not need a huge extension, but a warehouse with 30ft racks will obviously need a lot more. The nature of your warehouse will also determine whether you need a narrow aisle or standard aisle forklift, and turning circles should also be considered. Another consideration is whether a side loader or front loader is more appropriate for your situation.

You also need to choose between an electric or diesel forklift. An electric forklift is ideal for indoor work and provides particular advantages. Being a zero-emissions unit, it is safe to use indoors where people are working, as it does not fill the facility with fumes. It can also offer cheaper fuel costs than a diesel, but it may be more expensive to buy upfront and cannot be used outside in the rain. A diesel forklift is cheaper to buy, like for like, and can operate safely outdoors. Fuel may be more expensive, and it is not suited to an enclosed environment where people are working due to the exhaust emissions.

A final consideration is that of the tyres. Solid rubber cushion tyres are suited to smooth indoor surfaces and are often fitted to electric forklifts. Standard pneumatic ones are more often fitted to outdoor diesel forklifts. They are more expensive but better able to handle the terrain. For very difficult terrain, solid pneumatic tyres are sometimes fitted.

At Plantlocator we advertise all types of fork lifts for sale, from the humble electric order picking forklift to the large, diesel powered forklift trucks capable of lifting 40ft shipping containers at the docks.  Today, most lift trucks for work inside factories and warehouses are electrically powered, although LPG forklifts are a viable alternative and less polluting than their diesel equivalents.

For added flexibility operators could consider an articulated forklift, as this provides extra manoeuvrability in tight spaces.  Plantlocator also lists specialist fork lifts – for example the truck-mounted fork lift.  Examples of these, make by Manitou, for example, enable a lorry to be unloaded quickly without the delivery point possessing their own fork lift.  These types of lift truck are transported on the rear of the truck’s trailer and it is the fork lift that loads itself onto the carrying vehicle.

When looking for a used forklift, it is important to check the history – has it been used indoors or outdoors – the latter will usually mean that it is in better condition. Check the lifting hydraulics carefully and listen for any excessive noise from the hydraulic pump.  For electric forklifts, consider too the charging requirements – usually 3 phase power will be needed and sometimes older fork lifts come with their own charging units. 

Other areas to check are the lift height of the forklift – is it up to the job in hand and – especially for work inside buildings – are the dimensions of the truck itself correct.

Buying a used forklift could save lots of money on rental payments or the depreciation costs of buying new.  Make sure that you choose the correct specification and the lift has been well maintained.  If possible buy from a reputable Plant Trader.
