Are you looking to purchase forklifts in El Paso? Below is information that you should know in order to find exactly what you need.
Required load weight and size
5000-lb forklifts are the industry standard. However, forklifts are rated as low as 3000 pounds, and can be rated over 35,000 lbs. One of your first steps is figuring out how much weight you will typically need to lift.
How high you need to lift the load
Will you be working in a warehouse with high shelves? Or will your forklift only have to load and unload trucks? Another important consideration is the width of the aisles your forklift will be operating in. Standard forklifts need aisles 11 feet wide or larger in order to turn around. If your aisles are narrower, then you are in the market for a narrow aisle forklift, or even a very narrow aisle forklift.
Know your terrain
When buying forklifts in El Paso, you’ll need to consider the specific type of tire you need to work safely and complete the job effectively. Cushion tires are solid rubber and are best for interior work. Pneumatic tires have compressed air and are better for outdoor work. Solid pneumatic tires are even more effective for outdoor work, when the environment has glass or nails. The cost of the tire increases with its ability to function in rough terrain.
New or used?
If you only intend to use your forklift for a few hours a day, you would probably benefit from buying a used forklift. If you use your forklift for more than four hours a day, you should probably invest in a new forklift.
