Straight mast forklifts have emerged with the market for rough terrain lift tricks. They have leveled off in the wake of the telescopic handler explosion of the past 10 years. Currently, manufacturers of forklifts are focusing their product development on the core function of the lift truck.
For instance, units that provide a lift capacity of less than 6000 pounds on average are up to 2.45% to a little more than $46,000. Other machines within the category's bulk class ranging from 6000 pounds to 10,000 pounds in capacity are up 3.15% to $54,177. Machine buyers would rapidly point out only if their actual expenses are up ever so slightly.
With models which rely upon diesel fuel, hourly costs in those 2 classes have increased 81.6% and 84.3% respectively. Even if the prices on the dealer's tag might not seem all that different, when the equipment has left the sales yard and enters the client's work space, it should produce on a large scale.
The rough-terrain lift truck market has leveled off fast over the past ten years in the wake of the telescopic-handler explosion. The telescopic handlers are may just be the future that this specific kind of machine is evolving to. The job of a telehandler is to place a load with a long reach. The rough-terrain forklift continues to be the heavyweight champ when it comes to pure grunt lifting.
Omega is a multi-line maker that offers a whole variety of rough-terrain forklift families. They have established the Mega Series, that consist of of larger vertical-mast units. These models provide lifting capacities which range 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 complete this task. The larger and more complex machinery required, the more specialized that OEMs such as Omega become.
