What is value? Is it the cheapest forklift? Is it the most reliable? Obviously, there's no point saving a few dollars on the purchase price if the machine needs constant repairs or if replacement parts are expensive. Environmental impact is also part of the value calculation these days. And let's not forget operator safety. All the other savings pale into insignificance if a single staff member is injured.

The most important aspect of choosing the right forklift for your operation is to consider your application and its needs. Food businesses are strongly encouraged by OHS standards, but not obliged, to operate with electric forklifts. However with heavy capacity forklifts, the only viable option is diesel power.

If you need to operate a large fleet, there are economies of scale that favour electric forklifts regarding battery charging and maintenance cost. There is also a strong case for LPG supply when shifts are long. In a small to medium warehouse operating in narrow aisles battery electric forklifts will minimise exhaust fumes.

As you can see, there are many different elements to consider. MLA offers obligation free professional assessment and advice so that you get the best forklift solution for your business.
