How much does a used pneumatic forklift cost?
Written by EverythingForklifts Staff
The web offers no shortage of used machinery. But when it comes to buying a used pneumatic forklift, you want to invest a little time into some comparison shopping. Used models run the full spectrum, from shiny new to completely busted (concealed by a shiny new coat of paint). So to evaluate the best deal – specifically one that will provide long-term use with the least amount of costly repairs and maintenance – it’s important to consider: the manufacturer, model number, lift capacity, year of production, number of operational hours the truck currently has, and its location (because shipping and tax will add to the price tag as well.
With that in mind, here’s a chart that compares each of those factors and incorporates them into a median range of used pneumatic forklifts currently available around the country.
Pneumatic forklift capacities
When purchasing a pneumatic forklift, start by deciding what capacity you need. Capacity is determined by how much your largest load will weigh. An internal combustion pneumatic forklift will boast a capacity of between 3,000 to 100,000-plus pounds, but 5,000 to 10,000 lb capacities are the most common. Also make sure the lifts your investigate can reach as high as you need.
Routine maintenance and upkeep is essential to getting the most value out of any forklift, especially those that get abused being driven on rough terrain. Your maintenance team will determine how much support you need from the dealer: if you have mechanics on staff who can handle basic maintenance like oil changes and replacing belts and hoses, you may only need the assurance of the dealer for major repairs. On the other hand you may want a dealer who can handle regular maintenance duties for you. Be sure to ask about service policies as you compare dealers to make sure you’ll be able to get the support you need.
Knowing exactly what you need from your pneumatic forklift will help you make a wise purchasing decision. Know what type of terrain you will be working on, the heaviest load you will need to haul, and your maintenance requirements before starting to gather price quotes. This will help you compare products that are similar, rather than comparing prices across equipment with varying features.
