Even if your forklifts are maintained properly, they certainly won’t last forever. Understanding when to replace a forklift can help you save money, improve efficiency, and avoid safety problems due to old equipment. When determining whether it is time to replace a forklift, one should consider a number of factors including the type of forklift, the model year, where the truck is being used, the number of hours it was operated per month, and the frequency of maintenance it received. Once all of these factors have been taken into account, you will be in a much better position to determine if you should buy a new forklift.
Don’t let poor decisions increase your operational costs. Even if a forklift is still working, continuing to use it may not necessarily be a sound financial decision.
