• How high do you need to lift the load?
• How many hours per day (estimate) will you be using the forklift?
• How much room do you have to manoeuver in?
• How wide are the narrowest aisles?
• Do you have low height restrictions ie: low doors, unloading containers etc.
• What terrain is the forklift travelling on? Ie: concrete, sand, mud, etc.

Other Considerations To Take Into Account

• Electric forklifts are powered by large lead-acid batteries, similar to in your car, but much larger.
The battery generally provides for one standard 8- hour shift, about 5 or 6 hours of constant use.
Electric have a lower running cost per hour, are quieter in operation and do not omit emissions,
therefore perfect for running indoors.
• Internal combustion (diesel or LPG) forklifts have the benefit of being refueled ‘on the fly’,
ie: fill it up or change the gas bottle and it’s ready to continue working.
Internal combustion forklifts are capable of handling the largest loads, ie: larger than 15,000 lbs capacity.
LPG and diesel forklifts can be used indoors in well ventilated areas with appropriate exhaust emission purifiers where applicable.
• Tyre requirements: Cushion tyres: are made from solid rubber, are best suited to indoors.
Pneumatic tyres: are inflated with compressed air, are better for out doors.
Solid pneumatic tyres: are recommended for timber yards or recycling centre,
(or any location the tyres may be punctured regularly).
• Attachments: Forklifts can have attachments added to better tailor to your requirements.
Know what your fork will be lifting, ie: rolls of cable, pick up of items not on pallets etc.
• Sideshift: This option allows the operator to move the load left and right without moving the truck,
allowing precise placement of loads.
not_sure • Mast Type: Determine whether you require a low or tall masted forklift. The low (container) mast can be useful when unloading
containers – with the ability to enter the container to empty your container load, without the need of manually handling this load.
Or you may have a low door way entrance, which can only be entered by ‘low’ masted forklifts.
• Tilt Mast: The ability to tilt the mast and forks forward and back greatly simplifies loading the forklift on uneven ground. It gives
greater stability while moving a loaded forklift.
