Benefits of Used Forklifts

Cost-Savings & Availability

Used forklifts are significantly more affordable than their new counterparts, making them a cost-effective choice for businesses looking to acquire essential material-handling equipment without breaking the bank. Additionally, used forklifts are often readily available, allowing businesses to acquire the equipment they need quickly.

Customization & Servicing

Used forklifts come in various models, sizes, and configurations, allowing businesses to choose a forklift that precisely matches their specific material-handling needs. This customization ensures efficient and effective operation within the warehouse or facility. Our services extends beyond the transaction, ensuring you’re equipped with the best service support you need to keep your fleet running smoothly.

Reduced Depreciation

Unlike new forklifts, which experience rapid depreciation in value during their initial years, used forklifts have already gone through this phase. This means that the rate of depreciation is typically slower, preserving the asset’s value.

Efficiency and Productivity

Forklifts can lift and move heavy loads quickly, significantly speeding up material transport and placement compared to manual methods. This increased productivity translates to more work completed in less time. This can lead to substantial labor cost savings, as well as a reduction in the physical strain and fatigue associated with manual material handling.

What Is The Difference Between Cushion and Pneumatic Tires?

Cushion tires are solid and are best suited for indoor use and light outdoor use. Pneumatic tires are similar to car tires in that they are filled with air. They are ideal for outdoor use.

What Are The Types Of Energy Sources That Power Forklifts?

Forklifts can be powered by a variety of energy sources, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. When choosing an energy source for your equipment, it’s important to consider the specific application and requirements of the operation. Factors such as the lifting capacity required, the duration of use, the indoor or outdoor environment, and the emissions regulations in the area should all be considered when selecting the best energy source for the job. Here are some of the most common energy sources for forklifts and their differences:

  • Electric forklifts — These lifts are powered by electricity and have rechargeable batteries. They are a popular choice for indoor material handling operations, as they produce no emissions and are quiet in operation. They also require less maintenance than other models. However, they have a limited battery life and may not be suitable for heavy-duty applications.
  • Propane forklifts — Propane lifts are powered by propane gas and are often used in outdoor applications such as construction sites or agricultural facilities. They produce fewer emissions than diesel models and can operate for longer periods of time than electric units. However, they require a propane tank and may not be suitable for indoor use due to the emissions produced.
  • Diesel forklifts — Diesel lifts are powered by diesel fuel and are often used in outdoor applications where heavy loads need to be lifted. They have a higher lifting capacity than electric or propane units and can operate for longer periods of time. However, they produce emissions and are noisy in operation. They also require more maintenance than electric forklifts.
  • Gasoline forklifts — Gasoline models are like diesel units but are powered by gasoline instead. They are less common than other types of forklifts and are often used in outdoor applications where a diesel or propane model is not suitable. They produce emissions and require more maintenance than electric units.
What Kinds Of Used Forklifts Does CMH Sell?

How Often Should Forklifts Undergo Maintenance?

Forklifts should undergo regular maintenance based on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the usage intensity. Routine preventative maintenance inspections and servicing are crucial for optimal performance and safety.
