There was a time when 100 labors or may be more were required for the construction of a bridge, years were required to complete a 7 stories building. Time and cost were two factors which hindered the development process of the cities and countries. Things were unreal and uneasy for even sharp minds, thanks to the modern science and technology which has made the engineering work easier and better. Now engineers are more focused toward the uniqueness and creativity and not on “how this job will be done”.
We all are very much aware of heavy gigantic machineries such as: cranes, lifters, trailers, loaders, b double, b triples and fork lifters (the list may go on and on), just to give a brief idea all the mentioned names are further divided into sub categories according to the need and use. Electric forklift parts a machine to serve on behalf of 10 labors, normal fork lifters were good enough to facilitate the human labor but, electric forklifts are in town to save the day even better. To make it simple for everyone, electric forklift is something which we all have seen in a supermarket, driven by a staff member, four wheel used mostly for indoor purpose to put heavy load to somewhere above the ground, usually operable in narrow spaces. The worth mentioned features of an electric forklift are compact in size, four wheel, strong fork attached at the front to lift the load and easy to operate system with an indestructible roof. Prices may vary as it is available in different sizes these days, a mid sized may amount between $19000- 40,000 or may be more (If the capacity to lift the load is more than normal).
There are some prominent brand names such as Mitsubishi and Hyster etc. The catch in using an electric forklift is, one must not use it for outdoor purposes because during rainy season and snow it may damage the wiring and circuits, which may cost thousands for repairing. An average electric forklift is operated with DC and AC and electric components attached inside). Usability in smaller spaces, economical as compared to gas/petrol/diesel, zero noise, user friendly operation and mechanical simplicity are some prominent advantages comes with an electric forklift. On the other hand, cannot be used outdoor, recharging of 9 to 10 hours, must cool it down after charging and before use (in order to eliminate this factor one has to buy extra batteries which may cost thousands again), properly ventilated area for the battery recharging and parking of the lifter, limited or no use in wet environment are some unfortunates with an electric forklift. In a nutshell, it’s not a bad deal to cut the cost and increase the efficiency by investing in an electric forklift.
