Ingersol Rand 4 Wheel Drive Forklift

Ingersol Rand 4 Wheel Drive Forklift

As the market for rough terrain lift trucks has emerged so has the need for straight mast forklifts. Their demand and emergence has leveled over the last ten years thanks to explosion of telescopic handlers. Presently, lift truck manufactures are focusing their product development on the core function of the forklift.

These units for instance offer a lift capacity under 6,000 lbs have increased in price on average of 2.45% to approximately $46,000 per machine. Other types of machines in the category's bulk class ranging from 6000 pounds to 10,000 pounds in capacity are up 3.15% to $54,177. Equipment buyers would quickly point out only if their actual expenses are up ever so slightly.

With units which rely upon diesel fuel, hourly expenses in those 2 classes have risen 81.6% and 84.3% respectively. Even if the prices on the dealer's tag might not seem all that different, once the equipment has left the sales yard and enters the customer's work space, it must produce on a large scale.

Over the past ten years, the rough terrain forklift market has waned because of the increase in telescopic-handler purchases. The telescopic handlers are might just be the future that this particular type of machinery is evolving to. The telehandler's task is placing a load with a long reach. The rough-terrain lift truck continues to be the heavyweight champ when it comes to pure grunt lifting.

The company Omega produces lots of different lines of lift machinery and a whole range of rough-terrain lift trucks. The Mega Series is an established line consisting of larger vertical-mast models. These units provide lifting capacities varying from 8000 pounds all the way up to 20,000 pounds. The next step was to enable lifting capacities up to 50,000 pound and the HERC Series was made to do this job. The larger and more complex equipment required, the more specialized that OEMs such as Omega become.
