Fork-lifts are named for the L-shaped "steel blade forks" widely designed to move wooden or plastic pallets, but also can be equipped with assorted accessories for handling spools, 55 gallon drums, or any other specific loads too. Also called "lift trucks" they're used for inside and outside tasks and will handle loads of 250 pounds to 80k lbs plus. When your regular load is below 1k lbs or less, a pallet lift or hand truck is usually a more economical solution.

Before looking at forklifts or checking with dealers, you need to determine exactly what you need the forklift to do. Here's a short checklist of things to ask about before you start comparison shopping:

-Do you need tractor tire type forklifts?
-Will you need osha approved safety extras?
-How many loads will you be loading in a day?
-What types of material will you be handling?

Priceless Fork lift Information:

The same as autos, forklift prices can vary widely by model, and value for money does indeed correlate to overall quality and dependability. Top-tier models are generally more expensive because of technical strengths, far better tolerance of abuse and extreme environments, and significantly greater long-term dependability.

A 5,000 pound forklift can be the business standard. Brand new electrical 5k .lb lifts usually sell for $18k to $25,000, plus $2,000 to $5,000 for 1 battery with a charger. Most 5,000 .lb engine powered forklifts start out at about $16k and can cost up to $28k or more, based on the features you want. Generally in most although not all cases, an electric forklift is going to be more expensive than an identically-rated gas or diesel powered lift.

Parts of a Forklift:
1. The entire unit itself, which is a purpose apparatus with 4 wheels powered with a transmission and drive train.
2. A diesel, liquid propane or gas fueled I.C. engine, or a battery powered electric motor.
3. The counter weight, which is a heavy metal piec of material attached at the rear of the forklift, necessary to make up for the load. On an electric forklift, the massive lead-acid battery on its own may serve as a counterweight.
4. The mast, which is the up and down unit that performs the process of elevating, bringing down, and tilting the load; the mast is hydraulically powered and has a cylinder and interlocking tracks for lifting and lowering operations along with lateral stability.
5. The carriage(part of the mast), which includes flat metallic plate(s) and is shifted up and down the mast via steel chains.
6. The forks, which are the L-shaped devices that engage the loads. The upper back vertical area of the fork binds to the carriage through a hook or latch system; the front lower portion is inserted into or under the load, normally on a pallet. Alternatively, a wide range of other equipment is available, including slipsheet clamps, carton clamps, carpet rams, pole handlers, and many others.
7. The strong back rest, which is a rack-like extension hooked to the carriage section in order to prevent the load from moving backward.
8. The driver's over head guard, which is a metal roof, sustained by posts, that helps protect the operator from any falling objects.
9. The cab, along with a seat for the operator and foot pedals, steering wheel and switches for managing the machine-the cab is usually open and bounded by the cage-like top guard assembly.

Valuable Hints To Note:

Be familiar with the lift total capacity.Add-on attachments including sideshifter, adjustable forks, and spool handlers cut down load capacity of a truck. Each fork lift needs to have a total capacity plate mounted on it giving a detail of just what its lift capacitiesare in its current layout.

View several makes...
If you are not familiar with lifttrucks, I strongly advise trying one or two different types for four weeks each. You will be able to acquire a greater sense for the good points and weakness of the different kinds of lifts.... but stick to one model once you come to a conclusion.If you plan to buy more than one forklift, sticking on a single model provides the advantage of dealing with 1 dealer for all your warranty and servicing needs. Your operators also will benefit by not needing to get familiar with the control and handling differences of multiple types of fork-lifts. In some circumstances, this isn't always practical, since not every company produces every sort of fork lift and you may require more than one specialized machines.
