Can used electric forklifts still be used in the rain?

While some electric forklifts are not able to operate outdoors, some are designed with protection against contact from water. The best way to tell whether your forklifts can be used in the rain or not is to look at the IP rating. Any forklift from IPX4 and higher has liquid protection and is completely dustproof.

How long do electric forklifts last?

The lifespan of an electric forklift is between 10,000 to 12,000 hours, which means they will last for roughly five years. While a new battery usually offers you 6,000 hours of working hours. So make sure to have regular maintenance and inspection for your electric forklifts to avoid any reduced lifespan.

Do electric forklifts require oil?

No. These machines do not require any petroleum or gas due to their eco-friendly batteries. Which makes electric forklifts cost-effective and require lower maintenance as they require less fluids to replace like engine oils.

How long does it take to charge a used electric forklift?

Every machine is different. The average amount of time needed to charge an electric forklift is eight hours. Charging time will depend on the capacity of the battery and the remaining battery charge. Statewide provides regular inspection to assure you our battery stays healthy over the years. So that our batteries can perform at its peak to get the optimum power for your forklifts.
