WHAT TO CONSIDER WHEN BUYING A USED ELECTRIC FORKLIFT
- Availability of service technicians in your area.
- Availability of parts for the body, motor and mast
- Response times to service calls and first call fix rate
These are essential factors to consider but certainly not the only factors to consider when purchasing an electric forklift.
The fact that an electric forklift is comparatively carbon neutral is an important factor when considering that the trends moving forward are for reduced emissions equipment in any business, so the use of electric forklifts is a wise choice for a piece of equipment with a 20+ year life span. Diesel forklifts are being phased out of many businesses in favour of battery/fuel cell technology.
Forklift history consideration: a 7 year old forklift that has worked 5 days a week, 8 hours a day would have 14 560 hours on it. This would be considered heavy use. If you are able to get an electric forklift that has between 7 000 and 10 000 hours on it at 7 years old, this would represent a forklift that has had moderate to light use and is likely to be a better buy.
A reconditioned low hour electric forklift is often as good as a new electric forklift but the following needs to be done.
- Test Drive
- Check engine and list of replacement parts/filters
- Request load test
