As long as you properly maintain your battery (which is significantly less expensive than engine repairs and maintenance) your forklift lifespan has the potential serve the needs of your business for longer than a new gas-powered lift.

Purchasing Power

As with any vehicle, forklifts do require maintenance. Purchasing used forklifts gives dealers more buying power by allowing more room in the budget for routine, short-term and long-term maintenance. Oftentimes, parts are less expensive to replace on a slightly older model.
