How to choose the right Forklifts for Your Business
Selecting the right equipment for your business is essential in gaining the maximum return on your investment. But achieving great value for money isn’t just about getting your purchase or rental at the lowest price.
There are critical areas that you need to consider if you are to get the machines that best match your workload. Getting the choice of equipment right can have all sorts of benefits, from:
- Increasing efficiency
- Increasing productivity
- Increasing employee morale and stock management
- Lowering operational costs
It is therefore crucial to find the machine that uniquely suits your needs. Factors such as working environment, type of loads or products to be lifted and budgetary allocations will impact your selection process.
So, how do you go about selecting the best forklift for your business? Well, don’t fret, we’ve done the homework for you.
Here is some helpful information to help you in your decision:
There are different types of forklifts in the transport and logistics industry with each having its own unique use and benefits. The most common types include:
Counterbalance lifts – It has its forks at the front and a weight at the back that counters the front load weight. It is simple to use as it has no extended arms and works effectively on diesel, electricity or LPG.
Walkie trucks– Also known as the Electric Pallet Truck. Here the operator walks behind the machine as it is motorised to lift heavy pallets and manoeuvre into small spaces. The truck comes with a hand throttle that the operator can swiftly move to bring the machine to a smooth stop. There is also double walkie truck with extended forks that allows the operator to transport two pallets at a go.
Reach truck (also known as a high-reach forklift) -This truck is suitable for warehouse operations as it offers a height that other trucks cannot achieve. It uses forks and stabilizing legs to extend to those hard to reach areas. A double reach lift can be used to achieve twice the function and grab two pallets at the same time from the same shelf.
All terrain – These trucks are commonly used on building sites and in circumstances where loads needs be moved over rough, uneven ground. Often referred to as a Manitou (as this is a popular brand), these trucks can lift loads that are palletised or with the use of wide range of attachments.
Order Picker – As the name suggests, this machine is used by most companies to pick orders from a warehouse. The operators can raise and lower themselves while they are still working on the truck.
Container forklifts – These large are essentially large counter balanced machines which are used in the lifting and transportation of shipping containers. They can be fitted with either fork arms or container specific attachments.
The most common types of fuels used are petrol, diesel, LPG or electricity. Each of these has their pros and cons. For instance, LPG powered vehicles are competitively priced and can be used for indoor and outdoor activities. They allow for speedy refuelling, provide quiet operation and have an astounding power to weight ratio. As another perk, they have lower emissions as compared to petrol or diesel and can be more reliable than the other fuels.
Diesel-powered forklifts are easy to refuel and are quite the power tools for outdoor activities but are far noisier. They have more emissions and are therefore unsuitable for indoor operations.
On the other hand, electric powered forklifts are perfect for indoor activities because they have no emissions. On the flip side however, they are not as powerful as LPG or diesel-powered trucks. Another disadvantage is that electric trucks are less suited for outdoor operations since they need to be recharged (usually daily).
Size and type of load
There is a direct relation between the cost of the machine and the capacity that it can lift. It is therefore important to ensure that any trucks that you select can adequately carry your loads without being oversized.
If you do not work with heavy loads, then there is no need to get a pricey high-powered machine.
Things to consider include:
- What’s your load’s width?
- What is the average load weight?
- What’s the heaviest load you need to lift?
- The kind of stock to be handled by the forklift (will it be palettized etc)?
The best thing to do when choosing a forklift for your business is to create a list of all the things you need or are likely to carry. Remember, the more the forklift can lift, the more expensive it will be.
Lift height/turning radius
Take note of the height boundaries that your forklift will be required to operate within. If there are height restrictions that you need to consider in your workplace/environment such as sealing or beams, then go for a machine that extends within those boundaries. Ie; do require it to work inside of shipping containers and therefore be fitted with a container mast?
Do take note of all the sharp corners and bends that you need to negotiate. Choose a forklift that is capable of negotiating the tightest radius corners.
Hours used per day/week
The hours that your equipment will be required to operate for each day or week will determine whether to rent or buy the machine. If you plan to use the machine regularly for a long period, then buying the forklift would be the better option. Certainly, a viable investment (assuming you get it at a good price).
Moreover, if you buy from a good dealer, you should enjoy some after sale service perks like repair and a maintenance plan.
However, if you only need to use the fork to stand in for another machine that is being serviced; or perhaps you only need it to finish one project, then renting would be a better alternative.
Your budget will obviously play a big role in determining the machines that you end up with.
There are ways to save money when you purchase a forklift. For instance; you can buy a second-hand machine instead of throwing money at a new one. If you do have your heart set on a second-hand truck, it is important to have it checked by a professional.
If you want to avoid all the costs, the best option would be to hire the forklift especially if you are operating a small business.
To ensure that your budget can be used in the best way possible, we recommend speaking to one of our helpful Team members. They will be able to recommend great options for stretching your budget as far as possible. We have creative finance and hire options on offer to suit almost any business.
Type of tyres
Forklifts come fitted with either air pneumatic or cushion tyres. They both have unique applicability:
- Pneumatic tyres (Either solid or air) are designed for heavy-duty lifting and are suitable for outdoor work environments and rough terrains due to traction.
- Cushion tires are best suited for indoor applications such as a warehouse. They feature a smaller chassis and sit lower to the ground than pneumatic tyres. This feature allows higher manoeuvrability by enabling smaller turning radius. Notably, they are cheaper and more readily available.
Maintenance and service
All this falls on the dealer that you choose to hire or buy the machine from. Review the dealer’s maintenance and service policy and search online for their reputation. You would want to work with a dealer who sticks with what they promise as their after-sale service plan.
At Forkserve, we pride ourselves on being Australia’s leading full-service provider. We’re here to support you from start to finish. From helping you select the very best industrial equipment, to providing the best maintenance and service, we’re here to support you.
