Buying vs Renting forklifts in Melbourne
Whether you should buy or rent a forklift or some, is dependent on the status of your finances and the nature of your business. Renting does have its benefits with maintenance included, taxation benefits, regular technology upgrades and easy scalability. Although forklift hire costs less upfront, over time it can cost more.
For larger companies or those that are in the position to do so, buying a fleet of forklifts is a cheaper option in the long run. It also allows you and your workforce to have access to these forklifts whenever they are needed. They also add a valuable asset to your company which you can use to borrow against in future.
Make use of all the benefits that owning your own Komatsu forklifts gives you and contact our forklift sales in Melbourne.
Electric vs Diesel
The nature of your workplace is a determining factor in deciding what forklift to purchase. Consider both the weight of the products that needs lifting, as well as whether your workplace is indoors or outdoors and the nature of the floors. Electric forklifts have a limited lifting capacity (1.8-3.0 tonnes), but they are also smaller, more compact, and emit less pollutants making them great for indoor use. Diesel or other fuel-based forklifts have a higher lifting capacity, up to 25 tonnes, better load control and handling in outdoor terrain, and excellent weather resistance.
There are three types of tyres featured in our range: pneumatic, puncture-proof and cushion.
- Pneumatic – Ribbed, textured and filled with air. These tyres have a smooth handling on the road and great traction for control but may require more maintenance.
- Puncture proof – Smooth and solid, with these tyres you do not need to worry about punctures as the name suggests, however they don’t provide the smooth handling on rougher, uneven terrain.
- Cushion – Made from solid rubber wrapped around a metal band, these tyres give you a comfortable ride on smooth surfaces, ideal for smooth indoor concrete floors.
In consideration of the terrain, we can recommend the forklift which is the most appropriate. We also can supply forklift attachments at a competitive rate.
