Second Hand Electric Forklifts
Trucks Direct UK has a wide range of used electric forklifts for sale. They are one of the most popular choices of trucks to buy. This is mainly due to their versatility as well as their low noise output. They are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use. All electric forklift trucks for sale at Trucks Direct UK come with a fully tested battery charger with all models which can be either single or three-phase to suit your electrical supply.
Battery operated forklifts are the most environmentally friendly option on the market. They are fume free in operation, giving off no harmful emissions. They are also quiet in use, and due to the weight and concentrated mass of the battery, they are generally more manoeuvrable compared to engine powered equivalents. This is due to the battery weight acting as an effective counterbalance, enabling the truck to be more compact in size. The cost of recharging the battery overnight on a low rate tariff is considerably less than replacing gas bottles or filling a tank with diesel fuel.
Used electric forklifts are generally easier to drive than engine-powered machines because they only have an accelerator and a brake pedal unless they are hydrostatically powered. There is no clutch pedal or inching pedal, and the operator does not have to “rev” the engine for fast lift or hill starting. The maintenance and servicing costs of an electric forklift is considerably less than engine powered alternatives.
We have a wide range of electric fork trucks for sale from some of the biggest names in the industry, including Still, Toyota, Linde, Hyster, and Caterpillar.
