Benefits of Used Electric Forklifts
With their small wheels, the electric forklift is best suited to an inside environment. More specifically, for small and confined areas they are the best option as they are compact and manoeuvrable.
Used electric forklifts produce zero emissions during operations, making them green and keep your warehouse clean. This makes your site a more enjoyable and productive place for your staff. They are also silent, having only one moving part in the engine.
Electric forklifts are a low maintenance vehicle which can be easily operated. The battery pack of an electric forklift reduces noise and emission levels, but a charging station is required. An electric forklift can comfortably work a full 8-hour shift without running out of charge. We recommend that, if you work in a 24-hour warehouse, you have a team of forklift trucks. This ensure that whilst one is charging you can have another operating. That way there is no dip in your productivity.
The initial cost of an electric forklift can be double the price of its ICE equivalent, although it is important to take into consideration the total cost of ownership upon your purchase. While other types of forklift are cheaper upfront, over five years, an electric forklift truck saves more than 8 per cent in total costs. This includes the cost of two batteries.
The various uses of an electric forklift include loading and unloading goods, line feeding, order picking, stacking and horizontal transport. The load capacity of an electric forklift varies depending on the voltage, but can range from 1 tonne to 8.5 tonnes.
