Factors That Will Help You Choose the Right Lift Truck
Choosing the right lift truck is important for your business. It can affect everything from productivity and stock management to operation costs. Here are some of the most important factors to consider:
Your business environment should influence your selection. Will the equipment be operated on smooth or rough surfaces? Will it be used inside, outside, or both? How many hours per day will it be used?
Load Size / Capacity
Don’t choose lift equipment with a maximum lift capacity that is below your requirements or that fails to meet your height restrictions. Consider:
- The type of stock the lift will handle
- Your average and heaviest load weights
- The typical height and width of your loads
- Warehouse height and aisle width requirements
- The highest point the lift must reach
- Height restrictions, e.g., low hanging lights, ceiling beams and fixed-height structures like garage or container doors
There are three fuel options: LPG, electric or diesel. Electric forklifts may be more expensive initially, but generally have a longer lifespan, cost less to operate, and produce no emissions – factors that make them well-suited to working indoors and in cold climates. LPG and diesel forklifts can typically lift larger loads and move faster, and diesel lift trucks are recommended for heavy lifting and outdoor use.
Lift truck operators often sit in their machines for hours at a time, which means you may want to consider adjustable seating. High-quality ergonomics can reduce the likelihood of injuries, such as back pain caused by performing repetitive tasks in uncomfortable seating.
