Second Hand Diesel Forklifts
Trucks Direct UK has a wide range of used diesel forklifts for sale. Diesel units have many advantages over their gas and electric counterparts. As well as being significantly more powerful, diesel forklift trucks feature easy-to-maintain engines and very low running costs. In fact, diesel material handling equipment demands just half of the cost of running a gas-powered truck making them a cost-effective option for year-round usage.
Due to the fume emissions and relatively high noise levels produced by diesel lift trucks, they are best suited for outdoor use. When used outside, the exhaust fumes and particles escape easily into the atmosphere, avoiding environmental or health and safety issues which could occur indoors.
Diesel forklifts also boast better acceleration and lift speeds compared to electric forklifts. They also have a large fuel capacity, meaning they can work for extended periods, unlike electric forklifts which can be affected by a low battery.
If you’re interested in buying a unit from our stock range but are unsure if diesel is the right option for you, we can help. With knowledge and experience, we know the ins and outs of all forklift types and will be able to help you decide on the best forklift for your requirements.
We have a wide range of used diesel forklift trucks for sale. Just like diesel cars, they continue to operate for many years after their first owner. In fact, many companies opt to buy used diesel fork trucks once they have experienced a used diesel fork truck in first hand. Buying used fork trucks is a cost-effective option compared to buying new. Whilst a used diesel fork truck may not have the bells and whistles provided by a new model, they will be equally fuel-efficient and offer the same robust, efficient and effective usage.
All used forklifts that we stock are fully inspected by our accredited staff to ensure they are in complete working condition. All of our used diesel fork trucks are ready for operation from the very minute they are delivered to you. All second hand diesel forklifts that we stock are sold in the colour that we purchased them in. However, we are more than happy to respray them back to their original manufacturing colours, or spray in your colours of choice at an additional cost.
