The general rule of forklift pricing: the higher the operating capacity and height, the more expensive the forklift.
• Operating capacity is the weight that the forklift can handle safely. The most common weights are the 1.5, 2.5 and 4 ton models, which are typically priced between $15,000 and $30,000.
• When you consider higher capacity, the price will rise sharply. It is important to note that understanding the typical size and weight of the load will allow you to work with the seller to determine the exact capacity you need.
• If your load capacity is different, you may want to purchase a forklift that exceeds your current capacity to ensure it is working now and in the future. Therefore, it is very important to do your homework and find a forklift that retains capacity. There are some forklift trucks that can perform the same functions as larger units, but with a smaller capacity unit, which will save you money.
• If you need a forklift to reach an excessive height, such as 20 feet or more, you will enter a more expensive pricing range. However, unlike load capacity, your high demand is unlikely to change over time (unless new or large refurbishment). Therefore, it is best to buy the height you need now.
