Our Forklift Motors Range
Our forklift motors come in two different categories. These are internal combustion (IC) motors and electric motors. The motor for forklifts determines the conditions under which it operates. Important things to consider are whether the forklift will be operating indoors or outdoors. Also significant are the weight capacity of the forklift and its overall performance.
Electric Forklift Motor for Sale
Electric forklift motors can be found in several types of forklift. These include order pickers, reach trucks, cushion tyre forklifts and scissor lifts. Electric motors are particularly useful for machinery that operates inside, on flat surfaces. Electric forklift motors are powered by lead acid batteries. These last for six consecutive hours, but can make it through a full eight hour shift if given a couple of breaks.
Electric motors cost more to begin with. However, over time, they are less expensive to maintain, as they are more energy efficient than IC motors and therefore require less fuel.
lnternal combustion (IC) Motors
Internal combustion (IC) motors are fuelled by gas, propane or diesel. Forklifts which use IC motors include telehandlers, rough terrains and pneumatic tyre forklifts. They are therefore usually used in outdoor situations.
IC motor fuel tanks can power lifts for eight consecutive hours, longer than electric motors. They can also be refuelled quickly, and are more powerful. However, there are some drawbacks to IC motors.
Due to their emissions, they are not be used indoors, unless the area is well-ventilated. IC forklifts are initially cheaper to buy, but due to the cost of fuel and high repair bills, they could cost you more in the long term.
